Dear Doc C,

Or should I say "Cuz". I'm also a Harriet Beecher Stowe cousin. Nathaniel and Elizabeth Deming Foote had 6 children. The eldest, Elizabeth, who married Josiah Churchill is my ancestor. Harriet's ancestor was one of the 2 boys: Nathaniel and Robert?--don't quite remember. Harriet's mother was a Foote. See Foote family history. The other CW descendant of the 2 boys was ADM Andrew Hull Foote who with Grant commanded the Fort Henry-Donelson campaign of 1862.

Given this and that you're on the Eastern Shore, you really need to read my biography of Anna Ella Carroll, of Kingston Hall, Somerset County. She was Lincoln's political/legal advisor and a military secret agent, submitting a plan to Lincoln for the Henry-Donelson campaign.

You might want to get on the mailing list of the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center in Hartford, housed in her house.

Cheers,

Cuz Kay Larson
