Hello, Marg -

A while ago you were kind enough to secure for me Charles STAGE's death
certificate and obituary. I just wanted to let you know what happened as a
result of this courtesy of yours.

I read in the obituary you mailed me that one of his sons and one of the
daughters [she was previously unknown to me] lived in Chattanooga, TN at the
time of their father's death [although I am curious how they settled way
down there when everyone else remained in CT]. Following this, I happened
upon a post on the Net from a man in Chattanoogs, TN, who wanted information
on someone with the same name as this son and I contacted him.

To make a long story short, we made a connection. My great-grandfather
Charles is his 2nd-great-grandfather and by searching for information on the
daughter who also relocated to his city, he has found for us the maiden name
of Charles' wife and the name of the village in Germany from which the
family came! Isn't that exciting!

And all of this came about because of your kindness. I thought you'd like to
hear of this success story.

Thank you again very, very much for your help.

Best regards to you,

Nina Santoro
Deerfield Beach, FL
