Events in My Family Tree: February 8

Whoops, I'm falling behind again.  Got to catch up to only one day behind at least.  This day's list includes yet another pair of Gaunt twins, making me wonder if there really is a trend on that side of the family.


Twins Mary and Naomi Gaunt, daughters of John Gaunt and Mary Kinsey, were born February 8, 1793 in New Jersey.  They are my 1st cousins 5x removed.

Paul G. Sellers, son of Solomon Ferguson Sellers and Ella (Shivery), was born February 8, 1900 in East Marlborough Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.  He is my 5th cousin 2x removed.

Fred Lincoln McStroul (originally Strul), son of Leo Martin McStroul and Anna Krebs, was born February 8, 1912 in Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.  (I've seen his original birth record at the county recorder!)  He is the paternal uncle of my aunt Mary McStroul.

Delores Lynnette Gaunt, daughter of Richard Gaunt and Ann, was born February 8, 1930.  She is my 5th cousin once removed.
