Hi! Sorry for the late reply, but I apparently did not have the message board set up to alert me when someone replied. Thanks so much for the social security application information. I will have to check that out! As for Richard Case, I have no clue! It doesn't look like he was a brother to Altha Case according to my research so far, but it's possible. As I continue to build up my Case family I will look into it and keep you posted on that!
Thanks again for your help!!
