    I have been helping a Cummings to find a William Veile how owned, for a short time, the highest earning female race horse. I will take an other shot at it. Thank you for super human efforts to role this out now. Get some sleep now.

    My mom and dad and all their parents but one were all born in Brooklyn. I had some copies of records but what I looked at tonight were much clearer than previous records. Good job!

    Well Done! Mike and his team in researching and entering all this information online. Now I might be able to locate my grandfather, whom i know entered the USA before he immigrated to Canada. Haven’t been able to find him at yet.
