I awarded a generous genealogist badge to Thomas Stapp and somehow the powers that be awarded it to this member instead. Since this member passed away in 1966 I doubt it will mean anything to him. I have no idea how this happened but my sincere apologies go to my family member Thomas Stapp. My intentions were good.
