I love finding new cousins. I have 4 brothers and sisters, so that is something like 6th cousin 2 removed times 5.
Stop by the MyFamily site sometime.
Is the book you mentioned still in print?
Jim and Mattie lived for a long time up on Caney Ridge--I am not sure if that is Dickenson County or Wise County. From their porch you could look out across the Blue Ridge. No sight has ever been more beautiful.
