2. Charlotte Winans Hook

A note from Charlotte's son, John William Hook III. 

 I am the eldest son of Charlotte Ruth Winans Hook and John William Hook. My grandparents were Ruth Wickenden Winans and Leslie H. Winans. My sister-in-law Tracy Hook shared your site with me some time ago and I book marked it. She recently forwarded some e-mails and I figured I'd be sure to join in the contact group. I am married to Susan Faye LeFevre Hook who is very active in the LeFevre Family Association which is part of Historic Hoguenot Street in New Paltz New York. Our offspring are Ruth Elaine Hook Warneck (married to Tim Wareneck with children Matthew and Grace Warneck) and Perry Arthur Hook (married to Jessica O'Connor with children Felix and Quentin Hook). I'll try to do a bit more as we go, but wanted to at least establish the contact. Susie and I live in Warminster, PA.
