I would like to personally thank the following people...... without them I would have large gaps in my family tree. It's great to know I had more family than I thought!
Doris Noland Parton ( email@example.com ) Without your help on my Partin line I never would have found Serena's parents...... And I never would have known that I was Dolly Parton's 4th cousin :-) You have been a wonderful resource and have helped me break down some of the walls I had on my Anderson Hicks line.
Ken Jenkins and Pat Jenkins Hartman ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) Both of you have been wonderful to share your vast information on my Pittman line. I have loved getting to know Anne Campbell through your letters. Pat I am completely indebted to you for the wonderful photos you sent me of Anne and her family along with the documentation you sent me. I look forward to working more with both of you as we pin down more on the Thor & Campbell lines.
I must also mention Noble G. Abbott who compiled the genealogy of Elisha and Martha Abbott. I would have nothing on them without the vast work he put together in a family book many years ago. I inherited a copy of this book from my Grandmother Edna Barkley Pittman. The entire Abbott line I have posted on this site is Noble G. Abbott's work. Thank you!
I would also like to thank Sam P. Sentelle for the most amazing resources on the Sentell/Sentelle line! The information on the Sentell's is his, I simply fleshed out the information on the descendants of Lillie Sentell as best I have been able too. I had a few of the names of Lillie's ancestors but now I feel I have a real start to understanding her people.
I would also like to thank the users on the GenForum lists who have been both inspiring and so very helpful. I hope that I can offer information from time to time that will be equally helpful.
