While just wandering the internet today, I googled my grandfather, Allen Griffith Bodine. I was blown away by your site. My branch of the family is not notably long-lived, but it is notably closed-mouthed. All I have known was word of mouth and that scant.

I knew my grandfathers name, and remember as a young boy visiting with his three sisters and youngest brother, Hugh. I knew my father and uncle, and my cousins and sister. If you would like more information on these folks, let me know. In the meantime, thank you for your work. It is a real joy to see these names in 'print'.
