Mills and Brill
Posted by: Elizabeth Watkins (ID *****7624) Date: May 30, 2008 at 08:55:57
  of 785

Does anyone know anything that would help in a preponderence of evidence? I have been working on this for some time now and not making much headway. Even if you don't know anything about these people, could you look at what I have found and see if anything sounds feasible to you?

This first family are the 3rd great grandparents of the friend I am trying to help with research;
