  1. my wife(Laura Groff, daughter of Janell Elain Glass) can be found in your book and she wanted me to add some information for your records: she is now married to Joshua McKee Siau. Also Alexander Groff(youngest child of Janell Glass) was born on October 8th, not November 7th, but the year is correct.
