This is very much a work in progress. Most of the information I have is contained herein, but there are some things that I simply haven't gotten around to abstracting yet. So, if you don't see something you think should be there, ASK! Also, if you have additions, corrections or question, feel free to e-mail.

Data is what I have put in as of 8 Feb 2003 for the family files.

The book Hunt-Paris covers the following families:
Samuel Paris SR family of Louisa and Prince Edward Co VA, Smith Co TN and Crittenden Co KY
