I am just begining the daunting task of putting together my family tree. Here is what I have so far;
On my mother's side
Christopher Simmerman m. Margaret> Arehart Simmerman m. Mary Fuqua > Joseph Ahart Simmerman m. Elvina M. Williams> Robert Rush Simmerman m. Elizabeth Snowden> Robert Lee Simmerman m. Laura Bell Jackson> Annabelle Marie Simmerman m. Lester Franklin Withrow> Hazel Ellene Withrow m. Cross, Thomas, Maxum, Jones, Snipes, Ulrich(maybe more?)> Judith Ann Snipes > Brenna Michelle Summers(me) m. Tony G. Lopez> Trevor Anthony Summers Lopez and Reese Anastacio Summers Lopez
On My father's side
Daniel La Boube m. Bertha Gatzemeyer> Cecelia La Boube m. Byron Edwin Summers> Richard Eugene Summers m. Judith Ann Ulrich> me
The names I am actively researching at this time are; Lester F. Withrow-His father's name is James Patterson Withrow, his mother's name was Millie Ann Fore. He was born October 14, 1887 in Ellijay, Ga. And is supposedly of Cherokee or Choctaw descent. He married Annabelle Marie Simmerman in MO. 1913/14 and moved to WA.
I have recently found James' parents to be Johnathan Withrow and Margaret Patterson. Margaret Patterson's parents were James Patterson and Sarah Marr (who's mother may have been a Cherokee woman named Jobe). I would love to connect with anybody within this line to swap info.
I am also searching for any info on Hazel Ellene Withrow b. July 20, 1915. She was married several times, changed her name several times and moved a lot. I have found her Thomas marriage(Texas) and two daughters. I am still trying to find her other marriages-Could be more kids! Please contact me if you think you know of a connection!!!!
I have not started actively researching my father's side yet, hopefully I will be a lot better at this by then because I don't have much to go on!
I would love to connect with anyone from any of these lines.
