Updated October 4, 2003

PLEASE CHECK OUT MY NEWEST LINK: "MY OTHER HOME PAGE" containing a new updated book.

In memory of my father, Quincy John Lott, March 22, 1918-May 27, 1997.

For years I have searched for my family tree, even though, I haven't been able to put as much time in it as I wish I could. Presently I have over 12000 names. My greatest Brick Walls are of my 3xgreat-grandfather, Asa Youngblood, of Irwin Co., GA., he is the father of Elijah, Isaiah, and Mary Youngblood. Also my great grandmother, Irene Burkett Harper, she is the first wife of John Harper [he married 3 times].
Anyone with any information would be greatly appreciated, also if there is anything I can do, I will do my best to assist.

I want to thank Eileen Worthington for allowing me to link to her Homepage...There are a lot of great info on Worthington and Harper, plus more. So check out "The Worthington Web", just click on the link below.
Also check the Leonard Harper, Sr. Message Board.

I'll be trying to find all kinds of great links, so keep checking back for updates.
