Hi Jim,

I will be off line for a few days...life problems (getting old).

Looks like you are moving along with Ed. Morgan. Like you found, it looks like certain of the supposed children may actually have been those of his son Edward.

Elizabeth was Ed Sr's wife and Margaret Jrs. wife Child sorting is necessary.

Generally the Friends records are a wonderful source,

I will be back in a week or so.

Keep up the wonderful work.

Hello Jim!

In response to your inquiry: I am descended from William Tow/Mary Jane Kelsay. They had Nancy Elisebeth Tow, married Levi Monroe Cate, had James Wesley Cate (who is my gg grandfather). Do you know of any “Tow” geneaology books that I might reference? My aunts have done extensive research and travel, but we are always looking for any more info out there that is available. Thanks! And nice to meet you...cousin!! :)) Feel free to private message me if you have further questions/comments. Kristi
