Here I am with my happiest find ever. It's my GGGGgrandfather Michael, the Revolutionary War ancestor. Thanks especially to Donna M. and Jo K. for the help.
My sister started ancestor hunting in the 1960's and I picked it up in the 1980's. I'm mostly interested in my father's Burrell family along with Bowers, Billingsley, James and others and my mother's Lear family along with Michael and Nelson. The Burrell crowd is mostly in NE Georgia while the Michael, Nelson, Lear crowd is mostly in Harford County, Maryland.
