That's all I know of Cynthia. I don't look down the female lines. I will get around to finding when/where she got married, when she died, and where she's buried. But females are a second priority to me, since they don't continue the family name. (That may sound horribly sexist of me, but my maiden name is McComas, and it saddens me that I can't carry my family's name on)
