As this world goes around every once in awhile a very special person pops to the surface and leaves their mark for the betterment of us all.

One such person just left us to be in a better place.

Although she never lived in Allegany County she was “one of us” in heart and soul!!

Her Henderson ancestors buried in Andover NY brought her research to the attention of William “Bubba” Greene who ended up conversing through the computer longer than a decade. In repayment she offered to help research from sources available to her and she became a right hand in research to many in Allegany County including the webmaster.

We could not overlook her passing and wish to remember her for the good she did.

RIP, Teri, from Bill, Ron & the countless others you assisted…….
