Today in Family History - 22 Jul

There are two events to remember today.

My 3rd great-grandfather Calvin Townsend Covell (Erickson line) was born on this day in 1809 [1].

My 5th great-grandmother Mary Perreau (Baldwin line) died on this day in 1805 [2]. I believe she was the granddaughter of Charles Perreau, a Huguenot immigrant.
