Sharon Wainwright Graffagnino of Port Neches,TX, has forwarded a wealth of new info collected by her brother-in-law, Stephen Graffagnino of Nederland,TX [see below]


My name is John Lyman Bernard, Jr. I am listed in the genealogy. I’d like to offer you some additional updates to add to your tree. I was married in 2000 to a lovely lady named Rebecca Suzanne Gifford. She had a child from her first marriage whom I claim as my son. His name is Caden Josiah Williams (born 2-5-91). Also, Rebecca and I have a child together named Dylan James Bernard (born 11-16-2001). My brother, James Michael Bernard died on June 8th, 1998. [see below]


From Trisha Major in Houston: Hi Bob! I am sending you all the information that I have gathered so far on this line of descendants. I am still working on tracking down more specific information. Also, in generation 2 on this chart, Francesca Graffagnino married a Giuseppe Piazza, his mother's name was Antonina Graffagnino married to a Martino Piazza. I am having problems finding out info on her. If you know anything about this I'd appreciate the help. I'm still trying to find out what I can. [see below]


From Jason Graffagnino: Hello Bob, I tried to leave this info in the guestbook area when my son was born 2 years ago, but I noticed it never made it to the family tree. I'm in Family F, married to Morgan Wilson Graffagnino, and we have a 5 year old daughter Gideon. We also have a son. Here are the particulars: Grey Jason Graffagnino Born: 9-27-2001, in Fort Worth,TX Resides: Alvarado,TX Please update our tree when you get a chance. Thanks! [see below]


Another new contact from Family F, Jude Graffagnino, has checked in at the Guest Book. Jude is the grandson of Antonino (Tony) Graffagnino of Patterson,LA, and son of Samuel Ray. [see below]
