Great.  And, as you've seen by Clay's message, you've discovered some
more relatives already.

A Quarterman actually still living in Liberty County!

Oh, you will be able to join.

Thanks for sending all that information.  We'll put it in the database
and get back to you in a bit; got to eat turkey now.

Midway Society so you get their mailings.  I will also attempt to get
the relevant information and post it here.
