I'm from England, not Wales. Joe Bananas is growing somewhere real warm.
I looked up Fort Sumrall in my gazetteer and couldn't find it. You
could try joining one of the Welsh lists to follow it up.
My wife's granddad James VAUGHAN emigrated to the US in 1895. We can't
find wherabouts he was between then and 1920 (when he first appears in
New Castle, Lawrence Co. Pennsylvania) so if anyone can help me do a
1900/1910 census look up (Pa. and Ohio already done) I would be most
grateful and would consider a swap for a lookup over here.
By the way, I think I like Joe B. because he makes me laugh. Just so
long as he dosn't take over the list.
