Bob's Great Great Grandparents

While I admit that I don't do nearly as much research on his family, I didn't realize how much information I was missing.  I don't know any of his Great Grandparents on his Mother's side, much less his Great Great Grandparents.  I am positive that all of his ancestors on that side were born in Japan.  

Even on his Dad's side, the facts are kind of sparse.  It is just a calculated guess that 16 & 17 were born in Ireland, based on who I think the boys were living with on  the 1860 census.  I could be wrong about the census record, as other relatives think that a different census record is them.

My Great Great Grandparents

Randy Seaver issued a Saturday Night Challenge last night.  I was busy with something else so I decided to do it tonight.   Randy's Challenge   The first challenge was to list all of our Great Great Grandparents with birth and death information.  For my relatives reading this, the first 8 are on the Golightley side and last 8 are on the McCarley side.  I went to my genealogy software to get the data, but realized that I haven't updated it in a long time.  I needed to go to my notebooks to get some of the information.  It also showed me a few holes where I need to focus.
