Thanks for all your help on the Purdy family, Jeffrey! I see we are both direct descendants of Christopher Reynolds, making us 13th cousins once removed. So hello, "cuz". And thanks again.

Additional thanks are due, Sir Patriot and - perhaps I can say Friend? You jumped into my problem, unasked, and found answers to help flesh out family history.

Je te remercie.

I also spent the Viet Nam War years all over S.E. Asia from the first barracks bombing until 1972. USAir Force Avionics. Enlisted in 1954 and retired here in N.C in 1974. Finally touched the cold granite of the Viet Nam Wall last Summer! A very Sobering Experience!

I ended up on three military projects, Jeffrey, and I keep finding so many more people who should be honored that it meant the world to me to know you added a source for John Hunter Wickersham. I sort of expected to find you were from Colorado (I'm from Greeley, lived in Denver, Colorado Springs, Aurora, Holyoke when a child, and Timnath briefly, and even though I live in Oklahoma now, Colorado is still close to my heart. We had a hero who became my father's partner in restaurants when I was young. His name was Frank Kessinger and he served in the Devil's Brigade and the Screaming Eagles. I haven't been able to master using templates to get heroes in the right projects. Is that something you are good at, and if you would like to finish ones like Frank for me occasionally, let me know!

Thank you for this information. I have been following an Evans family in northern Indiana that I suspect is related to mine, but to whom I have no confirmation of such. Proximity often suggests relatedness unless the surnames are extremely common (like "Smith", "Jones", or "Brown"), or have multiple origins (like "Brown" or "Johnson"). I have seen family legends that my known Evans ancestors were Welsh Quakers. But I can go back only to the late 18th century with my Evans ancestors.

Thanks for adding the sources to Moses Reese for me... now can you help me find his parents Richard Rees and Jennie (Jane?) Evans cuz that's who I am really stuck on right now! I am trying to find them emigrating from Wales just before 1800...

Thank you. I have him in my ancestry tree with sources, but I haven't had a chance to look for free family search sources yet or transfer any over. I appreciate the help.

My ex was a Hiatt. I remember researching her Hiatts back to the Quakers. I don't research that tree anymore. Her ancestors migrated from NC to PA to IN just like my Mennonite people.

Hi Jeffrey, Thanks for the information you posted to the Evans-26017 profile. It appears to be SOURCE information not BIOGRAPHY. I will more to the SOURCE section with contribution acknowledges to you.

Hey Jeffery,

I had disconnected Thomas Haines from Matthias and Jane Brackett Haines since he doesn't appear in a primary source for the family as their child. Could he be connected to one of the other Matthias' in the Haines family? Is there a primary source for him being their son? I disconnected him again - though I hadn't done that - then saw you had reconnected him. :-)
