Thanks for the reply Scott.
My main goal is trying to make the leap over to Germany either through
the FOLLETT or ENGLE names. A secondary goal is to confirm some of the
information I have.
I did look at your web page and the one Follett you have listed is my
g-grandaunt who married John M Ash. I had known that already, but this
does re-affirm some of the info I did have.
You have a great resource for that area of Wyoming County - thanks for
sharing it with me!
Regards - Dick

Sounds like you have them researched pretty well. What information
are you looking for?
I have most of the Catholic families of Sheldon in my online tree.
This includes some
families that I found in the cemeteries in Batavia. If you find
anything useful, let me know.
