Good morning Anne
Thank you very much. At least I now have something to work from.
Would it possible for me to establish what the initial 'P' stands
for in George's name? If it is Porter then this is my George. How
can I go about finding this out. Any help will be appreciated as I
have reached a brickwall with the Crosson?Crossen's in USA.
Regards
Merlynn
