WELCOME TO MY FAMILY RESEARCH HOME PAGE
I am doing research on the following family names:
BIRD, PRATHER/PRATER, LEFTWICH, SLADE,
TEMPLES, MCCALMAN, BUTLER, FINKENSTAEDT, RALSTON.
My main area of research right now is with the LEFTWICH family. I have done research back to William J. LEFTWICH born 2 April 1823 in Roane Co. TN and died 10 Dec. 1878in Logan Co. AR.
He married Elizabeth Jane TEMPLES [5 Oct 1826-14 Aug 1894]
Nov. 11, 1844 in Hamilton Co. TN.
They moved to Logan Co. AR in the 1850's.
They had two sons, Francis Marion LEFTWICH [1845-1901]
and William Alfred LEFTWICH [1848-1902]
I have lots of information on the two sons and their families, but have not been able to
connect our William J. Leftwich to the LEFTWICH family from Virginia, and back to Ralph
Leftwich from England. I think his full name is William John and his father is possibly the
William that married an Ann Moore in Roane Co. TN. but have not been able to prove this
If you have any information that can help in my research I would be so grateful and love to
share any information that I have on these families.
