Randy Seaver's Saturday Night Genealogy Fun this week suggests we share the birth and death years of our 16 great-grandparents and tell how long they lived. Lifespans of my ancestors are always interesting to me, perhaps because I wonder how long I'll live. I've already lived longer than two of my great-great-grandparents.
Andrew Doyle (1836 - 1908) lived 72 years.
Elizabeth Laws (1845-1910) lived 64 years.
John Froman (1841-1871) lived 30 years. (Died of unnatural causes.)
