1880 ellisburg
Fred Hess laborer with the family of ...oh wow..the john redway family (they are my foster parents cousins). Interestingly he is 24 and there's an Alice Redway that is 8.

Hmmm..the redways and Greens are related to both my foster parents. Used to spend a lot of time at their homes. Fred and Alice also lived near the Cobb family up near adams. Cobbs are part of the family too.

I have to think on this a bit more. I wish my foster family were alive they'd be able to tell me how the hess family is connected into the Littlefield and Curtis clan.

I'm gonna check on some more things. Something is just tickling the back of my brain about all this.
