Hi, I've been working the Shandy/Shaddy family among others and noted that this is one of yours, also.
Took a great deal of time to come to this site, trying to get to you!!
Used to live in Morrison, did a lot of history and genealogy there. Now in Wheaton, IL, retired.
Have published 'The Family of Ronald W. Reagan' and it is nationally available.
Perhaps some of the old timers in genealogy/history will remember me. You have a great site!! Curt Gronner
