    Really thorough. Have worked on some of these people for years and got some valuable info. from you. Thanks so much.

  2. Edward (Ted) Smith says:

    Your work is of great value to me as a direct descendant via Sam Saylor and Anna Climenhaga. Thank you very much.

    I note that the birth date for one of our “cousins” in the 5th generation is incorrect. Betty Jane Saylor was born 10 Sep 1930 (not 1939).

    She lives in Crystal Beach with husband Arnold b:19 Feb 1932.
