- If you have not noticed lately, Bob Stokes is getting up in years. I have just had my 85th birthday last month and Stella Sikes has agreed to take over the web site for Root Seekers. She has already started cleaning up some of my mess and doing an outstanding job. This morning we uploaded about 240 new obituaries to the Kaufman County Database. I am requesting that at the next meeting, she be appointed the WebMaster (?) Mistress(?). If you want to continue the website, you must give her your support. That means that you will submit articles to her just as you do to Patsy for the Newsletter. That is another person to congratulate. I have been missing the Newsletter and want to say to Patsy that this issue is well done. Thank both of you, Stella and Patsy, for the work you are doing. on

Bob Stokes has finally added one of his family files to the Families of Root Seekers. It is the family file of the descendants of William Sibley of England. Included in the file are such things as the Freedman’s Oath which John Sibley signed, the list of passengers on the Ship Lyon which came to Salem in 1629 and a list of the settlers who signed the Covenant of the first protestant church in the Americas. There are over a thousand families listed in this descendant file.
