A Southern story. Long ago Larry and I worked out that we were kin through Sarah Cochran then he asked the great question, "What are your other names?" He decided right away that while we had initially been doubtful about the Cochrans we were also kin through the Schlemps. Double cousin Lois says, in the South if you are not kin you are connected. Or you are doubly or triply kin. What a loss of a dedicated researcher and a genial man.
