SPECIAL RECOGNITIONS
Most of the lineage info for this page
was provided to us by Root family descendant,

Katherine (Taylor) Black

The origins of Katherine's files are
partly from her own research, partly from unknown sources,
and largely from the research materials of
Phyllis Weaver,
all of which was edited and indexed by Katherine's cousin,
Donna (Hughes) Peterson.
For all involved, thanks for sharing your work with others,
and
THANKS, CUZ KATHERINE, FOR SHARING IT WITH US!
