[4qd-bannvalley] A few questions

Thanks William for the look up.  Don't worry about jokes about the Dripps 
name...it is several generations back for me.  My mother wrote and asked for 
someone to send her all the "Dripps" in the library.  They posted that 
comment on genealogy jokes.  They changed their name from Seldon when the 
Catholics were chasing them.  They hid in a cave with water dripping over 
the entrance...thus the "Dripps" family was born.
