His son, Hanson Chauncey Wescott (married Ruth Lynette Robertson) commisioned to have a geneology reseach done, since lost-I read it long ago and it went back to Stukley. Is it possible to get a copy of geneology? Iwas told anyone who is commisioned to do a search must submit a copy to library of congress-is this true? I am doing this for college master's level project.
