Yesterday I went off to Staples to get the 364 pages printed out. I work better with printed pages than images on my laptop screen. I have been going through, page by page finding little things (punctuation & capitalization) we missed as we went through it the dozen times before.
Then I was reading the obituary for my great great grandfather, Patrick Coyle. In reading the list of survivors my great grandfather, Michael Coyle, was shown in Texas. I have not discovered what happened to Michael after he left his wife & children. I thought I’d look once again.
No, I did not solve a big mystery. I still do not know when or where he died. However, I did find Michael and family in a census report I had not found before.

If you hear loud noises coming from Illinois, don’t worry. It is just my editor daughter learning we have to make more changes to the book!
