Special Thanks
To all the individuals who have helped and who are too numerous to mention.  Almost without exception, other genealogy researchers are willing to help in any way they can, often even when there is only a limited or non-direct relationship to their own family line or research interest.  There are individuals that have gone out of their way with help including copies of primary source documents and general willingness to go far beyond just answering questions.  These people become co-researchers and invaluable.
