These are the types of connections that can only be made over a Sunday cup of coffee in places like Sheyenne, ND or in an Arizona snow-bird refugee camps. Allyson Phelps sent me an email a few months ago to say that we were probably related. She is serving in the Peace Corps municipal development program and arrived to Guatemala in September 2005, about 4 months before we did, so we hadn't ever met but shared common friends. A few weeks ago we went out to lunch in Guatemala City to sort things out. Here's the linage we came up with, maybe someone will find it interesting enough for the family history books. If anyone has anything to add, you can leave a comment on this post.
