Hi everyone,

This is my first posting to this forum, though I've been relatively active elsewhere. I am searching for info anyone may have on the HYZER and SCUTT lines found in Delaware County. Below is an ahnentafel of my Hyzer line (I hope it all fits!). I welcome any additions or comments on what I have accumulated...feel free to send me an e-mail or respond in a thread in this forum.

Thanks
Scott Williams
