My name is Lisa Dobson Gilmore.
I live in Central CA
I am an avid family history researcher
I have the following surnames that I have info on:
They all came from the following states: Cain and Sizemore from SC,VA,GA,AL Basinger from Indiana and Illinois then CA
Chenoweth Indiana and Illinois and CA
Berry KY OK CA Purvis MO OK
Dobson Canada OK CA
I have 3 children of my own.My hubby was born a Riley(surname) but his stepfather raised him so he used Gilmore. We will legally hyphenate the last name to Riley-Gilmore ASAP as he now has a relationship with his father.
I am very close with my Chenoweth and Basinger and Dobson relatives. I have gone back pretty far and have many branches to my tree.
We have annual Dobson/Berry reunions in Oakhurst,CA
We used to have Chenoweth,Basinger reunions but many of the patriarchs and matriarchs have passed on and no one has taken over.
I am currently in the process of gathering info to put together surname binders with primary source info and pictures,stories. If anyone would like to contribute please email me.
I will be happy to copy them for the cost of the binder,page protectors, and copies.
