      Hi David and All,

      I don't know how many of you I share DNA with, but if I've reckoned correctly I share 16.7 cM with you, David Marshall, my 3C1R. And 20.3 cM with Sally Taylor my 4C. We each descend from John Wolfe Sparger Wolfensparger 1779-1834. The lineages connecting us are pasted below. And my own tree is attached, FYI.

      Just in case anyone is curious, I only learned about 3 years ago that my biological father was William Murlin Creasy, Jr. DNA revealed the secret affair between he and my mom. As a result I've been pretty obsessed working out my tree, and verifying it where possible using my DNA matches.

      The second message below was sent on the same day as the one above.

      David!

      Nice! Here's my mom:

      Rita Mary Kirby DNA
      1922?2018
      BIRTH 11 DEC 1922 ? Northampton, Massachusetts, USA
      DEATH 1 MAY 2018 ? Tucson, AZ

      And her husband, the fine man who raised me, gave me my name and sense of humor, apparently never knowing of mom's affair:

      Theron Marcus "Don" Vining
      1914?1989
      BIRTH 28 JUL 1914 ? North Adams, Massachusetts, USA
      DEATH 6 OCT 1989 ? Gainesville, Florida, USA

      Use whatever seems appropriate!
