Thanks to all those genealogy "angels"out there who gave so freely of their time and information to help me over those brick walls- and there were many- Without your help and encouragement this genealogy would have never been completed. Special thanks to Geneva Cunningham.She has gone out of her way to lend a hand. Foremost a special thanks to Roy Alderman,the only living son of Jonah Alderman, his wife Ruth and daughter Kay.Since I have found them they have opened so many doors that may have never been opened.This is an on going endeavor. There is still much work to be done. My parents were Timothy Mitchell And Irene Wells Alderman. To them I dedicate this family genealogy. May we someday meet these people of the past that have become so much a part of our lives today.
