‘Twas a pleasant dream

I remember it vividly!! However, the moment I awakened, I forgot the surname. The father was “James Henry” and there were several children including a daughter named Magdalena. Day and night, my mind is thinking genealogy. Popped out of bed at 5:00 AM and sat down at my computer moments later. In my Ancestry.com database, I have eleven men named “James Henry.” Only one resembles the dream (lots of children) and one daughter is named Maranda.

P.S. 6:00 AM: Furthermore, overnight an obituary arrived in my email, and (obviously), I had to document that information. Much more to add… but the quick relationship is “husband of fourth cousin.”
