  1. Thanks Michelle, I always appreciate your breakdown of the approach. Leaves me with no questions regarding the validity of the results.

  2. This is good. I too had reached a dead end on William and Lucinda. I am knid of new to this (2yrs). This will help a lot.
    William H Ballinger would be my 3rd Great Grandfather.

  3. I am finding William and Lucinda have so many descendants. Which of their children are you descended from? You can email me at turningofgenerations at cox dot net. I would love to hear from you!
