This website is a labor of love and a work in progress.  The first goal is to share an amazing collection of photographs, documents,  genealogical information, stories, facts and a few myths with as many members of the family as possible.  If you have old family photos, stories, obituaries, or other information you would like to add to this website, PLEASE let us know.
