This is great to finally find a genforum for our family name. My ancestors were from the VA and NC clan dating back to 1705 -- whether english or bravarian, I do not know, but am very interested in finding out. I have and extensive family tree with several branches beyond my own tree through VA, NC, GA, and TX. Maybe we can compare trees and fill in some blanks. I recently found another great-great uncles family not 60 miles from where I live in Carrollton, TX. I have another branch through KY and TX.
Look forward to communicating with anyone interested.
