Fishing for Family

My dad loved salmon fishing off the Washington coast.  The one and only time the whole family went with him, it was so rough that even the captain was throwing up.  Not my dad.  He kept on fishing.  My brother, sister and I were down below in beds with buckets next to our heads.  This was probably more than 40 years ago, and I still have vivid memories of my brother getting sick.  So fishing – the deep sea variety or the calm lake variety, has never really appealed to me.  I don’t mind being on a calm lake, it’s the baiting the hooks and dealing with the fish that I have a problem with.

But, here I am, trolling the deep waters of the internet, “fishing for family.”  I have decided to cast a wide net and post some surnames related to the Savages I am researching.   Hope I am using enough “bait” to find some of those unknown cousins!

Allen PRESTON and Alice WEST – 1700’s Middlesex, England
Allen PRESTON and Ann WOODHOUSE – 1760’s Middlesex, England
Thomas POWER and Jamima PEVERLY  - 1770’s Middlesex, England
John POWER and Sarah Matilda PRESTON – 1800’s Middlesex, England
Sarah POWER and Henry SAVAGE – 1800’s – Middlesex >Nottingham>Utah

Will throw out a few more "nets" in the next couple of days!
