Hi cousin !!

Not only are you and Patti related, but you just posted how WE are related.

I'll do a blog post on that. Haven't researched that line for a while.

Thank you,

Russ

(Honor is the first name in my tree that was a match)

I am also your cousin. I descend from Richard Cutter and Mary Pike, 7th great grandparents through their daughter Sarah who married Samuel Jacques. My husband, who is my 10th cousin 2 twice removed on this line, descends from John and Honor Rolfe, his 9th great grandparents, through their daughter Mary who married Richard Whittier.

Hello Randy, Russ and Dianne,

I also descend from the Rolph line through Richard Cutter and Mary Pike's daughter, Rebecca Cutter, who married Ephraim Frazier.

And Russ, I also subscribe to your blog. I'm attempting to track my Howard ancestors, whom I believe to be of the Maryland Howards. I look forward to you posting on the Rolfe and associated lines.
