My mother, Nancy, was from the Burrs of West Virginia, and had a love of genealogy, which she passed on to my sister. When my sister Minnie Elizabeth (named after both grandmothers) died in '94 and left me all the info she and mother had brought together. Its been a long road, but so much fun!! I have met so many great people, and picked up a few new relatives along the way.

This tree is no where near 'pieced together', don't know if it ever will be finished........for right now its a bunch of Roots, Twigs, and Branches ---
