Wow where did you come from? My connection is Hannah Sovereigns/Soverns/Severns wife of Benjamin Lynn/Linn married 1777 at Harrods Ft. KY. I had spent a bit of time in PA, MD, U of MD and such looking for what you sent. Thanks so much. I also share captive names with other researchers. So are you a Severns from which child? If Gower was a brother to Hannah and she was one of the children he brought out who were the others? Her brother John escaped (as the story goes) so it leaves 3 unidentifyed children? Want to take a guess at who they are?? Hannah got her fathers land in KY for his action in the Indian wars. John took his family and went north of the Ohio Rv to live, near his brothers children, one of his brothers stayed with the tribe and these were his children. Such a lot to sort out but interesting. ever so glad to get your message. Beth
