Thank you so much for responding, Andrea and Roy.....
If I had to guess here, I'd say that the spelling permutation from BRUNEAU to
BRONAUGH looks a wee bit Celtic (or is that Gaelic ?) to me. I think I'll mosey
over to the other Genealogy Diva in my cosmos at Scotch-Irish-L and see what Ms
Linda Merle has to say.
Thank you again for taking the time and giving me such excellent input.
