Karen, and all,
Hello cousin Karen. You'll find that although there are only about 20
of us on this list, most of us are cousins in varying degrees. There
are at least three others who descend from Abraham, son of Philip. One
other that I know of, Miriam Tunison, descends from Hardenburgh Tunison
as you do. Below is most of what I have on Abraham's family down to
his grandchildren. I would appreciate any additions or corrections.
Thanks.

Randy Mortimer
