I got more interrested in researching our family tree when my son Rhea ( pronounced like Ray ) Thomas Speed was born. In the last 5 years I have added over 300 names to our tree. Not all the information that I have has been added to the tree, but I plan to have it added soon.
The main surnames in the family are: Rhea's fathers side;
SPEED ( main branch ), HILLMAN, CARTER, and PLEMONS are surnames of direct female ancestors (grandmother, ggrandmother, ect.). Still adding the surnames ALLISON and RHEA.
Rhea's mothers side; WRIGHT, RUSSELL, HARRISON, GOUER, QUEEN and FRENCH.
There are many other surnames contained within this family, so even if yours is not listed above, take a look it may be here.I have lots of information on the Allison / Rhea lines that I am tring to get added. I add info. to all surnames as it becomes available.
Although I have done some of my own research, I have copied most of my information from papers compiled by other family members and would like to thank them greatly.
I would love to hear from anybody who has information on any of these surnames. Feel free to call, write or e-mail me. I would be glad to share any of my own information.
Also please allow for human error, as other family members and I may have copied something wrong. I am tring to get some type of copy of each vital record so that I have proof of each event. I fix any mistakes I find and if you find one please let me know so I can fix it.

I started this site in February of 2001. Since that time I have got to add over 150 more names and I'm still adding more.
