Is there any posibility that Alonzo was a "Webber-Harris"
English snobs liked to have double barelled names in those days.

Therein lies the problem, not you. Your comments are welcome.
Anyway, time to put this away - I just hope readers of all this might take note - derogatory comments aren't needed, and ALL these messages are archived by Rootsweb.
James.
