Hi All,
As in Gavin Bell's case, my family seemed to have their own type of pattern:
Charles' son James (m. to Harriet) had James Jr., Harry, Gertrude & Rheta;
Rheta (m. Joseph) had Joseph, Gertrude, Rheta, James. The similarities have
helped with where to start when faced with a long list of possibilities, but
I wouldn't trust it much further than that.
