Here is the Obit of someone who had a great influence in giving me the
genealogy bug. She wasn't related to me -- at least I haven't found a link
yet --- but she was married to my grandmother's 1st cousin (he was my 1st
cousin 2x removed). I felt a closer kinship to her than I did with many of
my own 1st cousins.
