Sentimental Sunday-- Wright- Graves- Miller-

 Hello world, thought I would share some of what I did today..  Sentimental Sunday was spent
digging in the files on Ancestry to see if data for my cousins family could be found.
Shirley and I have dug  many a file together sometimes winning some times loosing.
She was a friend for a long time and then we learned a very distant related kin.
Shirley now  has her own blog and she is sharing information on her very lost lines in hopes someone may see what she is struggling with and come up with clue or answer. Or if really lucky live near the areas of research and find a piece of her puzzle.

I also have two of these names in my files so it makes it fruitful for me to see what I can learn about these names.

 If you would go to her site, maybe some of you whom live in New York can suggest something more for her to do.

Today we played with Mr Thomas Graves b abt 1800, we may have found a lead. Not enough information to know. He served in the War of 1812. Enlisted in Minden. NY.

In the past we have played with Daniel Miller and William Wright.
