Regarding the postings on Peter BRENNEMAN and his daughter, Nellie, who

tragically died in that fire.....I wrote my BRENNEMAN cousin, Barb Christie

and she was nice enough to "spell out" how I am connected to this family as

I didn't have Peter in my Family Tree Maker.

This means that Joanne Baker and my "cousin" Linda (on the Decatur list) are

also "cousins" of these people

And she also included a compliment to the list and's her

reply...and THANKS, Barb!


Hi Jan, I checked my family program and come up with the following: Albert

Cary Landes and Peter Brenneman were 3rd cousins, once removed. Albert Cary

is your first cousin, twice removed and Peter Breneman your 3rd cousin 3

removes. Peter and your Frances were first cousins, one remove. Is that

enough 'cousins' for one paragraph<G>??

The Decatur list is a great one! None that I am on have anything like it,

just a bunch of bla-bla-bla - "anybody know my Smith family" type thing

comes through every little bit.


So now I know....hope I can remember <grin>
