So good to hear from you. I am always eager to trade information as information on forebearers is easier to come by than descendants.

1. See (2) 1.1 Sarah Jane ICENHOUR below. I am assuming based on your information that this is your George Thomas. Dates and locale jive. I can supply you much more details about Jacob's forbearers (to 1601 if you want to go back that far in far more detail than I have on his descendants.
2. Please sent me your family line including dates and places of births, maarriages and deaths, occpations, military service, spousal parents, etc. Include your spouse, children and any siblings you have.
