I have sent a link to this post to cousin in Illinois and now waiting for her response. Hopefully she will come to the same conclusion but it does give me hope that we are there or at least very close. If we have hit the jackpot then we have managed to get back another 2 generations. I will endeavour today to find more about the Pankhursts and the Beals/Beales, time permitting. Now I need to concentrate on Elizabeth Parker. Thank you.
