Hi, it's me, Ned Hawley. Sorry I won't be able to add anything.

BTW, regarding the pension files, the Stephen Holley who appears on Joseph's application is identified as the son of Stephen, not the one living in Cornwall, VT. Also, I just checked the pension file for Stephen of Cornwall ... I do not see a Joseph Holley on that application ... maybe you have some other information I don't have.

If you want to pursue the paper trail I recommend you hire the NEHGS in Boston. This is a tough thing to crack - I know, I worked on this generation myself for a long time. Go with the professionals.

Regards, Ned
