Several dates and spouses were filled in and some previous errors corrected in this family, on June 1, 2005.
The most serious of these are that Martin Tesh married Elizabeth Cornelia WALK, not Walker, and that John Henry Tesh married twice. His second wife was Ellen Laura Ann Chitty, daughter of Lafayette Chitty and Angeline Kimel, not the Laura Chitty whose parents were Henry Nathaniel Chitty and Laura Transou. <

Previously we had Emanuel's middle name as Victor. Moravian records give it as Valentine. Which is correct?
