    Hello Jennifer,

    You have done a very nice job with your blog! I have thoroughly enjoyed going through it.
    My real reason for contacting you is that I believe we are family by way of DNA tests that indicate we match on chromosones 3,6 and nine. Reviewing your family names some are familiar and could prove to be connections. We too have family from Missouri and before then in Tennessee and Kentucky. Would love to hear from you about sharing information. We are not novices having researched for a number of years.
