Hi Bernie, Sharon,

I have nothing further on Reuben in my's been a long time since I have checked back in on the Denton mailing list, but the lady who started the list had a wonderful website, when I was on the list.

Sharon, have you checked out the archives for Denton-L? Also, here's the Denton web site:

Bernie, did you know that Sue Montgomery had passed away? I was so surprised just now, when I went to check her site and saw the tribute written to her.
She was my age, and passed away in 2006.

I know that our DENTONS connect further back in earlier generations, but I am not sure whether they in any way migrated together to AR. It's been a long time since I did any gathering on them....but, it's good to see some discussions going on again.
