Hello James,

I wasn't saying that the Jacob I mentioned was Eva's
father. I was asking if anyone knew if he was or not.

In my tree on roots web I have the dates that you
mention for Eva's birth and death. My tree also states
to use my info as a starting point not the final word
on information.

My tree started with information that my mother started
in the seventies and was all in a cardboard box alot of
it written on the backs of scrap pieces of paper and
without sources. She died in 1990 so I cant ask her
where she got some of her info. So unless I have a
source listed in it the info should be used as a
beginning and not an end so to speak.

So time will tell if there is any connection between
the wonderful info you contributed and my Sailor
family. Maybe if nothing else they were cousis on the
other side of the Atlantic!
