This is a web page on the research of Ron Surmon, he sent them to me and I thought I would include them on my site.  This is as close as I have come to connecting my Withers with any of the other Withers lines.  If anyone has anything they would like to add or correct please email me debbie@wihtersplace.com Thanks so much.
