I met Gerry in 2002 when he travelled to the UK and the Isle of Man in particular. I had made contact with Gerry sometime before that when it became apparent that we shared the same ancestors and where distant cousins. We corresponded and talked regularly and I thank Gerry for the articles and research he carried out, some of which are on this site.
