Hi Betty, This is so funny. I was doing some research too, and I found you (I sure hope you are who I think you are, my cousin). Write soon; it's been years.
As for the geneology, I started with some of the stuff you found years ago and searched some of the more obscure names. In short (or not so short), Hannah Littler (b. 1871)was born to Mincher Littler & Deborah Hadley, which is on your info. I traced Deborah's lineage and: her father was Joshua Hadley, his was Simon Hadley II, his was Simon I, his was James Hadley II, and his was James I. James' mother was Philippa Audley, whose father was Humphrey Touchet De Audley, whose mother was Eleanor De Holand. Now it gets interesting. Eleanor's mother was Constance Plantagenet, Princess of England. Her father was Edmund of Langley, whose father was Edward III, King of England. Beyond that is Edward II, Edward I, Henry III, King John "Lackland", Henry II, Geoffrey V le Plantagenet, Foulques V le Anjou, Foulques IV Rechi Anjou, Geoffroy II, Foulques III le Anjou,Geoffroy I Grisegonnelle Anjou,Foulques II le Anou, Fouques I le Anjou,Ingelger I Count Anjou and Orlean, Hugo "L,Abbe" Bastard (he was; his mother was a concubine named Regina and his father was Charlemagne.
Not bad huh? I'll send copies of my research if you want. Meanwhile, write and let me know if I've really reached my cousin!
