Patty, I have been searching for years to find about Austin George. I will go into more detail when I contact you by email. This weekend I will transcribe Lydia's letter and post it to you. I think they were probably married in NY because in the letter they had just arrived in VT and she sounds kinda homesick. We can exchange addresses and I will be happy to send you copies of whatever I have. Hey, now I have to find out more about brother Lewis! I am the gg-grandaughter of Mary Ann. I think the reason I have these letters is that they were among Abraham Van Siclen's things when he died and they went to his daughter Caroline Zerbe. My grandmother kept them and gave them to me years ago. I have found 32 Austin George's and not one I could call my own. I went on the message board yesterday to post another query and there you were. What a thrill this is! I guess we're cousins of some kind! Great!!
