  1. We need to learn more about Hannah. I have seen information that Hannah Yerkes who married Wykoff is being conflated with Hannah Yerkes who Married Wright. That is, we have the wrong Hannah as daughter of Silas. This would be a good one to sort out.

    1. Oh! Is that so? I had not heard that…hmmmm….So, do you know who they think should be the father of our Hannah? If I have some time, I’ll try to look into this more this weekend. Thanks for the heads up, Michael!
