John Freund on Robert Lounsbury & descendents

In the seventeenth issue of the Lounsbury Tree is an article by John Freund entitled "Robert Lounsbury and some of his descendants in western New York." Bill Mac Donald has drawn out this excellent article and placed it in Adobe Acrobat format so that the orignial tables retain their form. Many thanks to our good editor.

Some find Adobe Acrobat a very large program for reading pdf files such as the Freund article. Windows computers that find the large program a challenge migh find the smaller (and still free) Primopdf program more palatable.
