Hi Folks,

And what Scottie hasn't mentioned is that he has a great file (it's a
great BIG -text- file) that connects John Martin Greiner & Mary
Eischperger's grandson William Jacob Griner and his wife Elizabeth
Spooner with so many people in the area of Screven and Effingham Counties.

Scottie and I share ancestry through William and Elizabeth.
