    Hello fellows….congrats on another great series of stories…. I have a similar situation with my forefather Jacob Winey, who married late for his time and his wife did not have her only child until in her 40s! It does happen of course. There seems to be a lot of missing data…but loads of theories. (One of my aunts adopted 3 children and then became pregnant at 42!) How lucky you are to get a new perspective on Henry’s times…..! Our ancestors’ lives could get complicated as there seems to be little new in human nature! Is Life just about temptations and Death????

      Thanks, Robert! Yes, there are so many angles to pursue and explore, as you know as well. There are many holes and missing pieces to the puzzle too. That is a great story about your aunt and the adoptions followed by the biological child. Thanks for continuing to read our site 🙂

      Robert, I have been researching Jacob Winey (1717) of Philidelphia for some time now in an attempt to connect him to the Jacob Winey of Richfield PA. I was under the understanding that Jacob of Philadelphia had no children. I would be very interested in knowing how you are related. I have volumes of information regarding the life of Jacob of Philadelphia which is very interesting as to the relationship with the American Revolution.

    Andrew and Mark,
    Thank you for your previous help! I finally gathered permission from relatives to post some additional info on Anna Lavinia’s family tree. Im a little “tech challenged” and couldnt get signed into ‘Beech Roots’! Is that something you must enter for me!
    Thank you, Lauren Cook (Anna’s Grand-daughter)!

    • Andrew Hagenbuch says:

      Hi Lauren. That’s great to hear and we would be happy to enter this for you! Can you email the information to me directly via my personal email (the one I was communicating with you previously)?
