Egg on my face...
I’ve returned from a trip to Albany and Troy, NY, where I spent time researching some of the early Zander family mysteries.
One of those mysteries was the parents of James and Ruth’s granddaughter Ophelia I. Zander.
I was sure her father was one of their sons – her name was Zander after all – but was I wrong, wrong, wrong! She may have adopted the last name of Zander but her parents’ names were Isaiah and Betsey (Zander) McKibbin. Betsey was James and Ruth’s oldest daughter.
Read more about “Betsey and the three Ophelias” on the tab above. Also check out my corrected “Their Children” tab.
