Please accept my apologies for any misspellings of names.  This article was very difficult to read and there were a couple of places where it was blank.  If you find a relative with an incorrect name, please let me know so I can correct it.  [I counted more than five starred names, this could be my mistake, there were many little blobs on the article that I may have mistaken for stars] ~ Genie
