One Person at a Time....Charlotte

~Even though I have a lot of people in my family tree, I also have a lot of "holes" that need more research. Over the next few months, I am going to attempt to patch up those holes by doing research one person at a time- starting at the beginning of the list~

Today's Name: Charlotte 

I had 2 women in my tree with the name "Charlotte" who needed more research:
