RE: Coverts photo
I don't know about a relationship between my Harold Covert and the person you know. I've just "discovered" my Covert and haven't looked extensively into his extended family.

RE: N. Niener vs. N. Milner Pratt
Thank you so much for the information. I will address the issue. With your notation on Johnnie Pratt Jr. photo, I have requested the linking of his wife's memorial to his memorial.

Best Regards,
