Welcome to my family home page!

Some of the surnames in my family ancestory are: BAKER, BLANKENSHIP, DOTY, HUSTED, IMFELD, LAW, ROTH, SEXTON, SLATON, SWAFFORD and WHITLOW.

My great-grand parents Isaac Lee BAKER and Mary Ann HOOK were of the Coalgate, Okahoma territory, they were married Oct. 25, 1903.

My BLANKENSHIP line has been traced back to Ralph BLANKENSHIP, 1662 -1734 of Virginia. From there his descendants moved to North Carolina.

The DOTY ancestry of my husband has been traced back 11 generations to Edward DOTY, as well on my husbands side the HUSTED family line has been traced back to Robert HUSTED, 1596 -1654 of Dorset/Somerset, England.

The IMFELD and ROTH lines are both from Switzerland. We only have information on these lines back to the mid 1800's. Other names that are included in that family are SCHMIDIGER, BERLINGER and SCHALI.

My LAW ancestry is traced back to William LAW b. Jan. 4, 1688 in Kenmay, Aberdeen, Scotland, and his wife Elizabeth LAWSON. William LAW died about 1733 at Westover Plantation, James River, Virginia. His descendants are recorded as living in Virginia for several generations. Sometime in the early 1800's some of his descendants moved to Indiana and then later to Missouri.

It is our family record that our SEXTON line came to America from France. The SEXTON descendant report included on this page is all information that my great-grandfather, Pat SEXTON (b. Feb. 9, 1897) wrote in his family history journal. His sources are unknown, but we are in the process of researching this line to verify our information.

Most of our SLATON information comes from "The Slaton Family" book compiled by Arthur J. SLATON on February 1, 1964. Many different sources are sited in his research. The book begins with Arthur and Rachel SLAYDEN, first located in New Kent County, Virginia, in the year 1730 and works it's way down through their descendants.

The SWAFFORD branch of our tree goes back to James Riley SWAFFORD, b. Oct. 1823 in Tenn., and his wife Dorcus (Adracis) SPEARS, b. 1824 in Kentucky. They and there descendants lived in Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas and Kansas.

Other surnames that appear in my ancestry and that I am currently researching are as follows;

I owe a great deal to all of those who have so willingly shared their research with me. Thank you! I am as well willing to share any information I have and look forward to hearing from anyone with common lines!
