Thank you so much. I will print it out and try to find just where it fits.? I think I have a record of every Lovejoy who ever lived trying to find a connection to my Canadian Lovejoys who came from the U.S. in late 1700's.
I think there is no connection to the? tv Lovejoys.? One interesting thing about the Lovejoys is that Alexander Graham Bell did as study on them as there were so many deaf mutes, and deafness among them.I am losing my hearing so maybe I could claim a connection on that fact.? There is a lot of "hard of hearing" among my family members.
I do appreciate your sending me this informatiion.? Thank You again.? Patsy
