About Our Family Research

I was inspired to delve into my past by the discovery of a head stone in shallow water near the the mouth of the Grand River,the inscription read; JESSE C FURRY, APRIL 4, 1884, AGE 1 DAY. I started out searching for my own family name. I have since gone on to looking for my Grandparents roots. Primary family names I am searching, include Furry, King, Whitwell and Ptolemy.
