what your doing is great! Good or bad I think all of history should be told and not just half, things shouldnt be hidden away just to be discovered again. Everyone has an interest in knowing all and not just half of a story.You are doing right, because in this world the person that speaks up is the person thats heard.
I myself may have an connection to George Washington through John Cary a servant who served him at Braddocks defeat, in his estate records there was a John with no last name of course. I just have trouble tying William Christian =former owner of Lot Cary,and aquaintance of George Washington, the Selden family of Westmoreland, the Cary family of Gloucester,Mr.Sherwood of Hampton, and the Tyler or Taylor family together,figuring out what they have to do with my family,from what I understand Carys were hired out to many different people. I even question the Philpotts who have a connection to the Taylors. The oldest Cary I found in my family was born in VA in 1837.
Well Good luck!
