Our heritage comes from a quardro of nationalities; east and west Africa, American Indian (Blackfeet & Chatot {Choctaw}), European and the British West Indies (Amerindian). Our grand children are the reason we have created this web page. We did not want them to forget our heritage after we had left this world. We want to leave behind our legacy for them to remember years beyond this moment in time. The thought frightened us and about having no heritage to leave them and that they would have nothing to cherish of their rich history. In dire efforts to reach them and reacquaint ourselves we began to make notes of what we knew and remembered about our grandparents. We also called and coresponded many, many times with our mothers, Aunts, Uncles and Great cousins; Bobbie Woodberry, Elzabeth Ransey, Atlois Henderson-Farmer, Danny Johnson, Myrtle Shepard, Annie Jewel Henton and Dorthy & Elmore Perkins. We call these people in our family the Matriarchs, they are our foundations. I like to thank them for being there when we would call them day and night, sometimes asking the same questions we had asked the last times. Their patience and cooperation has our ultimate graditude and we commend and love them. May God continue to bless and keep them always. The time and allegance we gave to producing this heirloom took away from personal and private time, we had to put many of our normal activities on the back burner to obtain a certifications in Genelogical Studies, and do acurate research. We thank our husbands and wives who took up most of the slack in our daily duties, and to our children, you all are our breath of life. We love you always.

The fact finding and researching took us places we had never imagined existed. Once we followed the subtle nuances, their lives came echoing out of the past in a way we can not began to describe. We discovered wonderful aspects, astonishing facts about their lives which coincided precisely with dates and times in history. We found that our family ancestors were great survivors, who had survived the viles of the Whites, French, Spanish and British slave masters who were so eager to enslave, kill-out or make extinct our kind, even to the point of destroying themselves - if it had not been for the benefit of the massive "survival of the fittest" theory. Nevertheless, their stories began to complete our lives and we began to know ourselves better than we had known ourselves before. We thank them for leaving their spirits here for us to follow "The Trail Of Their Blue Sky."
