do u have a way of sending me your (our) ancestral tree. it looks as if from all your research (of which you've saved me much time) you've pretty much enlightened me about my ancestral line through broadnax/hampton/hairston. It clears up what my mom told me about wilmoth being her grandmother... I vaguely remember when "bessie" we called her "aunt bessie" died. there were quite a few people there. also... they are trying to plan a family reunion for next year in north carolina. I am not sure how far the planning has gotten.
