Randy, hey we are related through the Atwood's. Eleazer Atwood b. ca 1681 in Eastham, Barnstable, MA and died 29 Mar 1729 Eastham, Barnstable, MA is a brother of your Hannah Atwood. Eleazer Atwood is my 7th gt. grandfather. We are related on another line also but I don't recall right now what it was. Have a great day. Jo
