Sorry to take so long to answer. Yes we are definitely closely related. I can supply what I know and have though it is not much. There are some small variations in the town info etc, but they are the same for sure. I did read about the ancestry.com DNA project and I would like to do that ASAP but I will have to pay my dues first though I would be happy to supply my email address, phone etc. to you upon your request. We did change our home number. I look forward to your response Gary.
