Thank you. We had one of those relatives - my great-uncle Carl - who gave all of his nieces and nephews (my mom) one of those leather bound onion skin paper typed copies of our Sutherland geneology... it's a bore to my mom, and i don't think it's easy for them to dig out/find their copies - yet my second cousin - Glen - the maintainer of this line - recently had an unexpected heir and a spare late in life and thus carries on our version of the Sutherland name - so our curiosity is enlivened - and he is the source of this info - which i assume is from his grandfather (Uncle Carl)... THANK YOU. It's bizarre when you delve into this past (it's sort of like the past isn't dead...): amily:
