The name of Daisy Dean is given in a Ewbank genealogy as a daughter of Dora Ewbank. An obituary of Clara Dean Berry also includes the "Dean" name. This was sent to me by Barbee Hodgkins of The Dalles, Oregon; she received it from Anne M. Ward of Husum, WA who collected it from the White Salmon (Wash.) "Enterprise".

I notice that you grew up in White Salmon, WA and belong to a Berry family.

My GGrandfather, George Ewbank, had a daughter, Dora Belle Ewbank (Ewbank-19). Dora and her family lived in White Salmon and elsewhere north of the Columbia. I wonder whether you knew these people.

Greetings, When you have a chance look at http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Forster-577. Her CLN is shown as Hess though her husband is shown as Cox? Her sister Joanna is shown at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=13890616 with the last name of Hess? Cheers!

Greetings Judge,

When you find a moment, please look at Ann Willson (Hoag-464) and Ann Willson (Hoag-39). I just found new research that may disprove the research of Armstrong and Shotwell that has been reiterated by many. The Esquire Thomas Staindridge's will has apparently been located and apparently provides proof of Ann's LNAB as she is mentioned as a full sister of Thomas. This merge needs to be completed prior to being able to merge the duplicate children's profiles. Notes have been placed on the two profiles of Ann that further elaborate on the new evidence.

Hello Jim,

I have just found on the Relationship Finder that we are 10th Cousins.

I live in north east Scotland and part of the Scottish Clans Project.

I note that you did law and you may be interested that a 1st cousin 6x removed of mine was a lawyer and mayor of Charleston S.C. during the Civil War. This man being MacBeth-43.

All the best,
