      Hi Sherry,
      I am not good at all on the internet, so you can be assured that the reason you couldn't find the JOHNLYONS-L group was because I did something wrong in sending you the address. Sorry! Try USGenWeb.com then go to their archives, select Louina, and type in "Merriman" or
      "Lyons." They'll have things about the Lyons group in there.
      I found a "Grandinego" (I think is how it's spelled), which is the name of a witness on one of your group's documents, who was given an English land grant in a DeVille book about English land grants in Louisiana. I also found an "Aldridge Plation" mentioned in an
      abstract of newspaper articles from Assumption Parish. That may be why the Comstocks came to Louisiana, through Rachel and whoever this Aldridge Plantation belonged to. I'm going to have to do some searching to find out who owned it.
      I also found a William Comstock who served in the Confederate Navy and who was buried in Donaldsonville. He listed his next of kin as a daughter named "Gussie." Have you ever run across a "Gussie" or anyone whose name would transpose itself o the nickname "Gussie"?
      By the way, the wife of one of the guys in our local genealogy group in Terrebonne Parish is a descendant of Hester (Ester) Comstock in your group. He says he has a folder on the Comstocks and we are trying to get copies of everything he . I'll let you know if anything pops up.
      Sorry about the wrong address! I'll get the hang of this one day.
      Patty.
