About Our Family Research


Over 45 years ago, I bought and read a book titled "History Of The Kuykendall Family" written by George Benson Kuykendall.and published in 1919 by the Kilham Stationery & Printing Co. of Portland, Oregon.
I learned about it from my father, Riley William Kuykendall of North Carolina. He had begun an interest in his Kuykendall family history.
probably after reading a short article published in the Charlotte Observer in Charlotte, NC about lost gold involving someone with the name "Kuykendall" (known to be Abraham Kuykendall) and a tomb stone located in the Mud Creek Baptist Church Cemetery in Henderson Co. NC as well as a ghost story.
I remember some of what began of the first tracing of his family with visits to various known Kuykendall families in Buncombe and Henderson counties where he was from.
I remember the first time I saw the old original white cross tombstone on the grave. The National Societies of SAR, DAR and DFPA Chapters has since replaced it with a larger marker which includes all of Abraham Kuykendall's children. The original tombstone was laid down on the grave itself. My family and I were there.
My father was killed in 1958 and I became determinded to finish what he began. Here it is, 2011, and I haven't stopped yet.
He was known as a "jack of all trades" which seems to have been inherited by our son, Eddie Price.
Needless to say, I was also proud of my mother, Lula Ellen Wilson Kuykendall who died in 1962 with talents inherited by our daughter Brenda Price Cunningham-Campbell.
