Thank you so much for the directions.I have printed them out, and I hope to be down your way in either late spring or summer.
Thanks for your notes on Rachel Rice;then, evidently, thisone researcher was wrong about Rachel's lineage.I am going to see if I can find her again on the Internet.
My dad was born and raised in Martin Co.,Mitcheltree Township,then later Lawrence Co., close to Williams.
My mother was born in Lawrence Co.,close to Williams, in Spice Valley Township.The last place her family lived while she was growing up was on the 'old Miller place', which was on the road where the STUMPHOLE BRIDGE is.
I wrote two E-mails today, so I don't know if I told you that her parents, Levi and Mary Jane Barnes, and her grandmother, Ann Gerking Barnes is buried in the Williams Cemetery.Ann married a Chapman in her later years, and her tombstone says ANN CHAPMAN.I know my grandmother and her family were not happy about that;don't know the story behind it.
Thanks again;it is nice to know there are descendants of my ancestors and the old pioneers still living in the general area. We go down to the Bedford area almost every year to visit relatives, and we stay at the STONEHENDGE INN there. A nice place to stay.
