Here is my reply to an email message. It was “sent” about 1:45 AM and I copied it for this blog message. Why? Why not??
Ron, I can’t sleep and I’m so tired!! Maybe three hours sleep but that is a stretch. That information about the Garst women is mine (from FF-KK. I think, or my Ancestry tree). From my memory, David’s wife Elizabeth did marry a second time–to Leonard Houtz. It’s all in FF-KK.
Ron, as I look back to the late 1980s and early 1990s, it is nothing short of a miracle the way folks flooded me with Frantz-family information–and collateral lines. In 1987, I knew nothing about my ancestry. I published the three volumes, 3,180 pages, in 1996. More than 45,000 individuals. Everyone has source information.
Ron, you said you have been blessed with two families. I feel like I have been blessed with hundreds of families (thousands of families). I’d like to think “I got it right” in the book and I’m working hard to “get it right” in my Ancestry tree. There is so much misinformation in Ancestry family trees. If you read my blog you will see (and hear) me rail out at the careless documentation. Please draw my mistakes to my attention so I can (hopefully) correct them.
Best wishes from Lorraine
I’ll probably sit here (at the computer) and document more family.
