So, who's "our common ancestor"?I checked for your sur name on my genealogy file, just to make sure, and didn't find "any" Erbs' listed.Where did we branch off?I would believe that its only two-three generations back. Would love to fill in you line from the branch-off point.
Here's my wife's line:Susan D. Hall, (5)Ellis Dewey Hall, (4)Arthello Johnson Hall, (3)James Jefferson Hall, (2)George Washington Hall & Eliza Ann Stockdale, (1)Johnson Hall & Mary.
So Johnson Hall(abt 1808-1905) is my wife's ggg grandfather. ------------------ I know nothing further about Eliza Ann Stockdale, her family, or her line. Would sure like to know more.Anything you could share would be appreciated. ------------------ I must tell you - that I am extremely new at all this. It was only the middle of last November - that I accidentially typed in the correct spelling of the "Crandall" sur name with an "A", instead of the "E" I was using at the end of their name.This led to family genealogy records, held by a sister-in-law, that I didn't know about & as Paul Harvey say's, "This is the rest of the story."I didn't get my genealogy software - untill this year, as a late Christmas present to myself!
So, I'm not into searching hard-copy yet, such as census records, birth certificates, etc...Still at the internet stage.I'm getting better at that all the time though - so let me know "who" and what/where you are searching for, and I will keep my eye out as much as possible.
