This is a trek backwards through time to discover the ancestors of my father (Baldwin & Copeland - TX, MS, TN) and mother (Arnall & Hays - OK, MO, WV). It also covers the paternal genealogy of my children (Knudsen & Mugan - IL, Norway, Ireland).
As with all genealogy projects, this is a work in process. Much information has been acquired through research at Ancestry.com (census, military records, death records, etc.) and other online sources including information submitted by other researchers (not verified - but used as a starting point) and the Clayton Genealogy Library in Houston, TX.
Any information shared will be appreciated and I am willing to share information.Corrections are also much appreciated.
Dedicated to my mother, Martha Sue Arnall (1933-2001).
