Ancestry Anne: good to meet you, and a little about the research that you have done regarding your ancestors. My tree is a double and it is doubled on each side. My husbands family “Coleman/Watson” is coupled with Sexton(unable to find anything on Mary Catherine Sexton that married Jesse (Spencer) Coleman. Myrtle Lee Watson married Jacob Coleman, bring with her the Watson/West connection. My Mother Elnor Lee Cook married my Father Ilo S Meek. Elnor died at age 25, leaving me just before my 6th birthday. My search for my beginnings began in 1940, even though I didn’t start making progress until after 1951. So we have Cook/Kinney and Meek/Woodbury on my side of the equation. I am very thankful to Ancestry for the help they have provide me, and the better use of time in my search since I am approaching 80 years of age. Again, Thank you. Dorothea
