For generations families have been the backbone of society. It has been the family units which teach the values that we hold dear. Families convey and instruct children in the traditions, experiences, heritage that have made our families as their are. We are not all cut from the same mold, but are unique, so that each may make contributions to life and living. We research our families to see where we came from, perhaps this can aid us in finding out where we are going.

My research began in 1974 when I took a genealogy course at the local community college. In addition to the Cowling family lineage, I have added family names like; Reed, Coley, Camp, Hopkins, Brazile, Brandon, James, Dyer, Sanders and Dickerson.

With the discovery of each new name, date and place, I have seen how these have traversed a new land in its formation. From pre-Revolutionary Virginia, southward to the Carolinas and Georgia, across the Appalachian's into Tennessee, they all made their way westward. By the mid 1800's most were settling into farms and communities of southwest Arkansas, some even made the journey even further westward into Oklahoma and Texas.

As I research along my wife's family lineage I find additional new immigrant names like Quinlan, Giordano. Her family are relative newcomers to the American scene. My wife's paternal line, the Quinlan's arrived in the late 1800's from Ireland, while on her maternal side the Giordano's came to the United States from Italy in the early 1910's.

I hope you find the information useful and rewarding.
