I wish I could attend!! I have been trying to document my Long Island 4th, 5th, and 6th great-grandfathers - all named Joseph Horton - a popular name in the 18th century!! I'm pretty sure I have the birth and death dates correct, and the wives - but actually finding documentation that proves it is difficult! BTW - lived in Chula Vista Kindergarten - 4th grade! Hazel Goes Cook School ~ always loved that name!!
