Hello to all who may stumble on to this site. I hope what I have here will open a few doors for someone or take a brick or two off their BRICK WALL. I have been only working on this regularly since 2000. Although some was work done back when I was too young to think it was important enough. Now I know better. Knowing where I came from is like opening a door into my own history book. Knowing, what ancestor lived when the wars were all fought and the settlers went west and little things like the first photograph or telephone, it makes it more interesting. I was always good in History and now I can continue my schooling by researching my own. With, alot of help from other family members, new family and the kindness of someone that has the same interest and happens to be in the area I am researching. Thanks to all who have sent us this information and to anyone that will in the future.
