Monday Madness

Well its Monday - time for some Monday madness.

We all have them, the ancestors that no matter what you do, they drive you crazy. Today I'm going to share one of mine. Actually this is the one that frustrates me the most. I'd love to have some answers on this family. Who were the parents of John McCune? Why was Rebecca taken away by friends after her death? Why was she not sent to John & the kids? I've found a few of the kids, but not all. The daughter Edna is my great grandmother.
