Greetings... It has been several years since I contacted you. I have been too busy to look at our ancestors. After logging on to your new site I noticed that BURKE related that Nicholas Yeo's grandson John Yeo married Rebecca and had four daughters and seven sons... but no further account is given. My best take at the tree (with your previous help) links from John to William to William to Robert to Robert to Robert to Joseph to Robert to Joseph to Robert My great grandfather to my grandfather George, etc. I would appreciate it if you could review the enclosed attachment for errors or conformation. Let me know if you have any trouble opening the document. Thanks... Ron
