Finding an additional connection between myself and my “Ware” grand-children is very emotional. The following is the comment I attached (on Ancestry.com) to the record of William Glover Vestal (1692-1744).
The greatest gift I can leave my grandchildren (imho) is the accurate documentation of their ancestry. I’ve spent days (weeks?) meticulously building their tree one leaf at a time. Yesterday, the name “Vestal” appeared as an ancestor on (“other parent”) tree. I started weeping because I sensed I already had that family in my database. Today, I completed the connection. My sixth great-grandfather is the father of James (1726-1793), my grandchildren’s (Ware) line, and David (1736-1819), my maternal line.
