Seventies: I will have to check out the website Khathu. Sounds like you have some good information from the DAR. Oh wait... thought you found it at DAR
Khathu: I was telling Seventies yesterday that the Creator and Ancestors have a weird sense of humor. I always wanted to be able to go beyond the 1800s in my research and located a CW ancestor.
Daviss: I am proud of both of you
Khathu: I recently did but the ancestors are white. That wasn't quite what I wanted
Seventies: Yes, a lesson learned. Be SPECIFIC when you ask! lol
Khathu: Seventies I did leave the house. I am still in my pjs
Seventies: Didn't leave the house.. lol
Khathu: Exactly...heck I now have a Revolutionary Wart ancestor meant didn't
Seventies: See and all this time you were talking about our CW ancestors and now you have gone back further than most of us..
Khathu: Daviss - John R. Darsey inherited Ann and her (his) son Henry from his father Benjamin Darsey in 1863 The white line doesn't count
Daviss: ahhhh I see
Seventies: no comment.. lol lol lol Though I agree.
Daviss: How old were they
