you're very welcome. sorry it took me so long to see this, should check this board more often.
hope that you were able to get your patent numbers and the patents from the patent office. if you have trouble post and i will talk you thru it.
while looking for my dad's patents i kept thinking "all these inventors have descendents." i have a cousin who recreates old farm machinery and i have found patents for him, kept thinking "bet people with this name would like to know about this."
there are not many genealogy people also interested in patents, but when we are we really are!
