Hi Michael. Since I live about 30 miles from DC, I might attend the CFAA
reunion in July. However, I can't find an exact place or date or that the
reunion will be held. If you could forward the info, I would appreciate

I'm a descendant of Jemima Cooley who married Thomas Kirkland White in
Green county, Ky in 1800.
