What is interesting about this message is that my father, Vernon Elswick, married my mother, Mildred Skaggs in August 1936 in ILL.

In a book here in the Portland Central Library there is a report of the Elswick and Skaggs families as original settlers to Augusta County in the 1700's. I find it amazing that these two families managed to get together over the decades and centuries in different parts of this country when they were so far removed from Augusta County.

What is more amazing is that mine did not like one another and the marriage turned out to be a nightmare for all involved even though it lasted for years. Small world and smaller wonder...Janet Tiffany
