Hi William,

Let me re introduce myself by reminding you that I followed up on your family tree.
At the time I was planing a visit to the UK to meet with some family.(Stonehouse)

I have located but not contacted another person who has covered this branch.

Thomas and Elizabeth Stonehouse, according to the 1881 Census lived at Hospital Farm, Greatham. They had the following family:

This give you a quick run down of what I have found, I also obtained some photographs of a number of these people, including Elizabeth Greenwell. I still have to sort out all the photos make copies and scan them. Let me know if you would be interested.

I would like to ask what program did you use to store the family tree? I have not started yet even though I have registered with a couple of on line sites.

Regards for now
