In Response To: Revels Researcher ()
Hello Alice and All,
I belong to a REVELS family group, which met HERE ONLINE researching REVELS !! We've learned that we are 5th cousins, descended from 3 brothers who left Robeson county NC before 1850, and landed in other areas, including different parts of NC, OH, MI, and likely IN and WI. We've been working together and sharing data for a couple of years, though we've never met in person.
We have also dealt with Rene Rylander, Gloria Holback, and Paul Heinegg in the process of trying to sort out this family. We are also in contact with several others who have connections to the extended REVELS family. And as always seems to be the case, we each had an oral history of SOME relationship to Hiram (which none of us has ever been able to prove) - Hiram is a tough nut to crack.
We were unaware of Debbie Cuffy's possible relationship, but would welcome both of you to our family - LOL !! Which of the REVELS are your ancestors? I will touch bases with Debbie and ask about her connections as well. We come through Burwell, who descends from Edmund.
Please contact me, as we are always interested in sharing and exchanging data to better clarify our REVELS connections. Perhaps you have the piece of the puzzle we need, or perhaps we may be able to assist you.
