sorry Chris, my mistake, the man on the left end of the sofa in this photo is Thomas, my great grandfather and your great great grandfather. After talking with my mother Patricia, 65 and living in NJ I can add this to tie our family together: Thomas had several children @9, Henry A and Ambrose obviously were brothers, Henry A stayed on in Phila on Price Street went By "Henny". Had some children of which Henry II was your granfather. He moved as you said to NJ. His sons were your father and the bus co HenryIII. Your grandfather and my mother were first cousins. My grandfather, your great-great uncle, was born in 1899 PA, died in 1965 in Wildwood, had moved to Wildwood mid forties as my uncle Ambrose served in WWII as a marine/pacific from here.All this makes you my third/fourth cousin I think. Doesn't matter It is nice to know there are some of us out there who are trying to nail down a family history. Incidently, James RObert McGough age 36 in 1912 was a passenger on Titanic, worked for Strawbridge & CLothier Phila, survived lived to 1937, must be a cousin do you know anything, also Lord Gough of New Zealand, an ex McGough transplanted there due to some immigration snafu??? stories... went on to do some heroic sheep raising and supplying during a bad time in history, need to figure this one out. As i said look me up and call or e mail me directly at I have a picture of James (Titanic guy too). Stan
