I have sources for all my information, and would be happy to email anyone interested a gedcom file, a .pdf file, or a .txt file of this information including the sources. I also have information on the next generations of descendants, but many of them are alive, so I have chosen not to post to protect their privacy.

Sue Kervin (Kendall, Chester, William J, William, Cornelius)
