1620Re: BROADWAY FAMILY OF ST HELENA
- Nov 30, 2012Hi Miranda,
Louisa Broadway (born 1808) is an ancestor of mine. She and Henry Broadway had 11 children, the last of whom (Alice Eleanor Alexander 1852,)was my relative. Her first child, Maud Mary Mitchell (born 1872) was my Grand-mother.
I've just joined the Group and am finding my way through the maze of names and connections. It's so exciting!
Unfortunately I don't have any information about Caleb and can't add to any of your facts. However, I'm writing to you as I'm excited to "meet" my distant relative.
I shall certainly be in touch if I have anything to add to your data. If you have anything to share with me I would love to hear from you.
