Good Evening, I hope you do not mind my writing to you, but I saw
a posting you wrote this evening in which you mention Mary Farmer.
My name is Bonny and I also have Childress in my line the name
being Andrew Childress who married a Elizabeth Powers. Andrew's daughter
married a Thomas Farmer, and following Thomas's lineage, it goes to
Nicodemus Farmer and Lucy Ann Greenstreet being married and having a
daughter Mary Farmer. I do not know if this is your line, but sure would be
interested. Hope to hear from you. Bonny
