I started this adventure in 1996 when I got the Family Treemaker program for Christmas. It has now grown to over 10,000 names. It is so exciting to learn about my ancestors and share information. I am so thankful for the relatives that have kept this sacred information and passed it on. Some was obtained from old family bibles, and some from news articles and things saved in old boxes. I owe much to the relatives that have been so kind to take time to write about themselves and their families now. The internet has been a very valuable tool and I have met people online that I would never have know were related to me otherwise.
Some of the people in my family tree are:
Walker, Cox, Rose, (Rosa) Linville, Rust, Riley, Fittinghoff, Bringus, England, Cobb, Reinsack, Weese, Seibolt, Sebolt, Scott, Murphy, St.Clair, Huehn, DeWall, Tedrow, Dishman, Doiel, Duncan, Farmer, Green, Stephenson, Kirby, Kerby, Knapp, Kroeger, Langevin, Taylor, Todd, Tedrow, Stokes, Mellot, Milburn, Potter, Pitt, Potter, Read, Rice, Schipull, Smith, Snodgrass, Stewart, Stephenson, Staton, McGrew, Urruela, Welch, Whitcomb, Wilson, Church, Atkinson, Camelin, Campbell, Canfield, Cowan, Davis, Dewall, Edds, Ferris, Gates, Fullenwilder, Graham, Hurley, Jones,Milburn, Neil, Oldham, Reynolds, Rice, Williams, Wilson, Wood, and many more.
It has been so rewarding hearing interesting stories and collecting information. I have enjoyed and still enjoy reading them again. I hope you will be as thrilled as I have been to establish connections to relatives and add their stories to your family tree also.
If you have any information to share about any of these families I would very much like to know about it.
