No don't order it,I originally didn't order it myself ,because I received those pages from a distant cousin. I ordered it to add to my collection with the other books on that family line. Hopefully you or I can deceiver the source :D Stephen

Hi Sarah I received the book today(Six Columbiana County,Ohio,Pioneer Families). I sent via email what I found out about the number six after Florence.It appears Mr.Fetters used a numeric system to identify his ancestors.I can say it was not a loss buying the book,it has typed letters addresses to Thomas Penn,Williams son.The letters were written
by my 7th great grandfather William Young. The book also contains the diary of my 6th great grandmother Christiana Young(Leech). Stephen :D

Glad you found so much family information in that book! I'm disappointed that the "6" was just a numerical indication of which ancestor it was. I was really hoping to find out where he got that information on the ship taken, etc. since I have not seen it elsewhere. Does he give no references for any of his claims? Back to the drawing board then for this old academic-- I've got to have my proofs!

I found a reference in the book Albion's Seed by David Hackett-Fischer that John Jones was from Bala, Gwynedd, Wales. A wonderful book that I highly recommend if you haven't read it. I keep meaning to look up the original reference, but every time I have the book in front of me, I don't have any internet and whenever I have internet, the book is in the cabin in the valley below... Sorry, summer is a crazy time for me to do anything that requires electricity and internet. In another 6 weeks or so I'll have more time online.

Best wishes,
Sarah

Hello, possible cousin Decor8 and [TS_welcome]

Do you know of any documents that would prove they were siblings? Still hunting here.

Best wishes,
Sarah
