    Hi Joe
    I have found a lot of mistakes in the records, so I believe your Aunt Annie also. But I will send the records that support the information you have received from others.
    By the way 3 of my 5 children go by their middle names, my mother and 3 of her sisters go by nicknames that have nothing to do with their real names. Your Thomas Probus is probably William "Thomas" Probus, since all the other information matches. The Mary Rose I cant figure out yet.
    Your Aunt is wrong about the other Henry Probus not being a relative, all Kentucky Probus's are related.
