I started my research several years ago when I asked my mother about our family. I transfered that information to a Family Tree that I still have in a file box with many other notes and documents. There are many untold hours spent at the computer keyboard on the internet researching. Reading about my family is like reading about our great nation and it makes me PROUD. There is a book, "THE TUBB FAMILY OF MONROE COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI AND THEIR KIN" written by Ray Parish, that is full of information and history about our country and even a ton more on the internet.
The family line includes many names but the most direct to me is Anglin, Benson, Eller, Fisher, Gunter, and Tubb. About the name differance my father Lanny Tubbs changed his name when he left home, at the age of 16, from Eulon Lann Tubb to Lanny Tubbs sounds better dosen't it?
Our early immigrants came here from England, Ireland, France, Germany, Switzerland.
