      From: Linda P Cohn [mailto:cohn@tiac.net] Sent: Monday, November 02, 2009 7:57 PM To: Ron@yatesville.net; Jim & Ruth Yates Hello, Ron and Jim, I'm delighted to make the acquaintance of other people researching Durr ancestors. My mother-in-law was a Durr. She was the great- granddaughter of John Michael Durr of Jefferson County, Kentucky, who was the brother of your Dorothy Durr, the wife of Frederick Moser. Thanks to the link for your information on the web, Ron. Where do your birth and death dates for Dorothy Durr Moser come from? Are they dates that have been handed down in the family? I'll attach a couple of files on the Durr family from my genealogy program. One is a Durr family history up through the generation that included our John Michael and your Dorothy. The other is an ahnentafel report for Dorothy Durr.
