Our Family History
Why research and write a family history?
I have been greatly influenced by my family past and present.
Most of that influence has been positive.
There have been hundreds of people in our family who have
left us with a legacy. A
family history is an attempt to capture the character, spiritual
life, faith, values, strengths, struggles, battles and triumphs of
the people who have made up our family.
I hope this history will help us better understand ourselves,
inspire us and encourage us to live life to the fullest.
A strong commitment to and walk with the Lord is very evident
in the lives of many of the people who make up our family.
My prayer is that knowing their story will also encourage you
in your faith in Christ.
Hundreds of hours of research have gone into
this project. I have
attempted to verify all the facts that are included using as many
original sources as possible.
Both my primary and secondary sources are cited in the
do not include information that I consider questionable.
It was not uncommon for soldiers during the Civil
War to be on a detached assignment or sick at the time their company
participated in a battle. I have obtained and carefully
examined the military records to determine that individuals were
actually present at the battles indicated.
This is a work in process, it will take a long time to
complete. I will
continue to add histories, biographies, pictures, and interesting
stories and I will add to the existing biographies as new
information is found. Please
help by contributing anything you may have that could be helpful
(copies of records, letters, diaries, your memories, obituaries, newspaper
clippings, and pictures). If
you do send me originals, I will return everything to you after
I want to thank the many people who have
contributed to this project. Without
your help it would not have been possible.

Note: I am still
researching and writing these histories. None of them are
completed. There are links to the histories that are partially
written to date. I will update the histories on this site as
my research progresses.
