Currently attempting to flesh out John Lawrence Coyne's WW 1 story.  Unlike his brother, my grandfather, Thomas, his military records do not seem to exist.  There is some general information about the battles he was in and the places he mentions but that is all we are apt to get.

Just added Morgan and Jenkins, Allwood pages to the Family Events section of my homepage.  I select families to research that are connected, somehow, to the Coyne family.  Vincent Coyne married Clarissa Kipers and her brother,  Klass Kiper,s married Florence Morgan in 1914. The Allwoods and Jenkins are connected through my grandmother Bertha Martha Minne Friberg Calkins cousin Olga Rhode Allwood.  Family Tree Maker tells me Olga is my second cousin 2x removed.  It amazes me that I can have 2800 people in my tree all related by marriage.
