Cousins in England?
A while back I wrote about a Catherine Stinson who lives in Virginia on the Eastern Shore. Catherine told me that her Stinson family came to Maryland in the 1600s, but, alas, that's not the case. She sent me her Stinson family history report and it states that her great grandfather, a Walter Stinson, and his family left England about 1878, settling in Cordova, Maryland on the Eastern Shore. They've remained in that area ever since. Walter Stinson's family emigrated from Leicestershire, England, shown in red on the map. Catherine has documented her Stinson line back to 1740 in Leicestershire.
