RE: George Washington
Hi Kerry,
I appreciate you letting me know about the birthday celebration you’re planning for George Washington. I'm sorry about the delay in getting back to you, but I know he would have felt honored by your thoughtfulness. From what I have been able to learn, he was a kind and generous man, although his marriage to Charity ended in divorce.

Yes, my husband's grandfather, George Brown, was George Washington's step son, but that is about all the information we have about him. In fact for years, I have been searching for a picture of his grandfather's half brother, George Jr., who died from fighting a fire while in college.

Thanks for letting me know about your plans, and I wish you much success in your efforts.

More Ives pages
I've added pages with obits and cemetery info for Nelson & Marion Ives, Robert N. Ives, and Helen Ives's mother, Lena Goddan. The cemetery records indicate markers for the Ives' graves, if you would like to request a photo. There are a couple of people who like to fill requests in the Topeka area.

RE: joseph henry and Benjamin goodwin
You say "Benjamin Goodwin did marry Olive Hadsell, who died in New York. Then he married Sarah Crawford who was widow to Hugh McConnell."

But my research shows that Olive Hadsell married Joseph Worth Goodwin, not his son Benjamin Frank Goodwin Sr who married Mary Soper and a Sarah last name Dyer?

maybe I've got this wrong, but this is what the records tell me.
