Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little. This site is an attempt to record what we've learned about our family history. In these modern times, families tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world. One of the goals of this web site is to help family stay connected and exchange information about the different branches.


My siblings and I never knew anything about our mother's family tree , we thought, maybe she was an orphan or something, we wondered about it for years... but when we were given the clue, where to look, it all fell into place.
The high point was the fact, we found an Aunt and Uncle, we had never known, and a family of cousins, that are all really great,and it's fun getting to know them.

This is a work in progress, so please contact me if you have any information that might help round out the picture, please contact me with any additions, corrections, clues or even thoughts of possibilities.
Thank you.


The first people I would like to thank, are two sisters, I met on the internet,researching my husbands family, Judy Heldreth and Lelah Achey, these sisters that gave me the first clue, on how to find my mother's history.
Also,newly found 1st cousins: Brenda, Judy, Jamie, Johnny, Gabe, Larry & David,our Aunt & Uncle.
And all our new researching cousins from 1st to 42nd: Darla E., Caroline Sue N., Ron Rawls, Levin Bowen, Vince Rielly, Hope Seagraves, Pat McHenry, Beth Gibbs, her aunts Rachel, Ruby, Bobbie, and Todd Rawls.. each of them have given such helpful information and pictures, and cemetery readings, [Todd]. Great web-sites that also helped were: RootsWeb,, the LDS,Family, and their great message boards.
Without all of you, We would still be,just wondering where we came from.
Thank you!! Thank You All !!!!!!!!!
