So, I’ve been researching Mary (Smith) Lightcap’s parents, Christian and Rebecca (Firestone) Smith. Rebecca’s parents are Daniel and Anne (Lang) Firestone. There has been a lot of research done on the Firestones – thank goodness!
Sometimes it seems that I’m the only person researching certain family lines. How wonderful to make a family connection where research has been done and where the research has been CITED. I don’t know how many times I come across research and there’s nothing to back it up. I HATE that.
George Ely Russell compiled Firestone genealogy back in 1957. I don’t have everything he gathered, but was able to find an abstract. Hopefully this will help someone, as it helped me.
