* Shafer, Fields, Johnson, Drake, Paxton, Withrow, Jett of WV*

Updated March 21, 2008

I have been working on this family tree for many years and have found much enjoyment in doing so. The names found here are Drake, Johnson, Shafer, Shaver, Jett, Withrow, Paxton, Hughes, Hutton, Spencer, Churchill, Harper, Rhodes, Mullins, Smith, and many more. Recently I found the connection on my Drake side which put Princess Diana Spencer in as my 14th cousin. This Drake connections has also connected me as a 13th cousin, once removed to Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill, Prime Minster of England. Another historic person in my tree is William "Willie" Storke Jett. He is my 6th cousin 4 times removed. He is the man who helped John Wilkes Booth cross the Rappahannock River after killing President Lincoln. William was also a member of the Mosby's raiders of the Confederate army. This family tree is peppered with hero's and colorful people. I hope you may find some interesting information here.
