Newly found family names
After an interesting conversation with my mother-in-law, I started researching DH's family. Aside from having family in the US before 1700, both Dutch and English, and being related to George Washington - his mother's sister is a x-times great-grandmother - I found these names along with a zillion Johns, Williams, Jameses and a few generations of Jesses.
Chapel - I kind of think this is cool
Neri - ?
Benjamin Franklin (first and middle)
George Washington (first and middle)
Lee Howard - there were a couple of these, they are both family surnames from Virgina.
Xoa ? Has anyone ever heard this one? MIL said it was pronounced Ex-oh-ah, this was her mother's name. I only knew her as Marie.
Effie Jane (3 generations!)
