Many THANKS to 'Jared McDade' for contacting me and suppling me with the Birth
Date of Jared Stocking, Jared and Lucy's Marriage Date, and all the Birth Dates
of all their Children in Lucy 'Bigelow' Stockings Diary, and Photos of Stocking
family. I have worked on this family for well over 16 years and without this
information that Jared supplied me with, I was not able to complete this
without him. THANKS JARED!
