Thank you so much for this information! This is exciting info. From what
you wrote my Sarah Edmundson was the daughter of Samuel D and Ester A -
would this be correct? You did not list a Sarah. I hve not found anything
other than she was married to George Ormsby.
Do you have any suggestions on who I can contact from here?
Again, thank you.
