|Hi, I am new to genealogy research.I've been interested in genealogy for some time, but never had the motivation to begin the research.A co-worker, who reasearches her family history, renewed my interest and got the ball rolling.|
I am interested in gaining knowledge about the following family names from IL, KY, and MO mostly:
Pennington (Cisne, IL area)
Case (Cisne, IL area)
Colson (KY and MO)
Mills (Southern IL area)
Acord (Southern IL area)
A few of the facts I have learned so far:
--Thomas Dagley (Revolutionary War era) was a distant relative of mine.The story is told that he was George Washington's baggage carrier.
--I have seen some research done by others on the Acord family that dates back to the 1600's before the family migrated to the States.
--My grandmother (Conyers) shared with me that I have American Indian ancestors in my lineage.
Any unique information that you could share with me about these names would be greatly appreciated.
