information on the message board and my information disappeared before I was
done. So, if it got sent, I apologize and will redo it all here.

A family story says Harry F. Sinclair (of the

grandfather, James Hampton Sinclair. I have not been to the library to
look up Who's Who, etc. so I am just getting going on this
Would appreciate any input on any of the above as
