I will also use this page to post information on other TOLSON Ancestors--Peter Tolson & Mary Ann(Taulbee)Tolson. I am leaving on vacation (New Orleans here I come!) and will update this page once I'm back. I hope to have comments and contributed information (hint hint) when I get back :)

I have a love for Genealogy! I while away my free time searching for clues and information on my ancestors who fascinate me to pieces!
I enjoy finding clues that give insight into their lives and hardships that they encountered living their lives as pioneering settlers of Kentucky.
I hope others enjoy this page and will also contribute and share information to assist us in piecing together clues of our ancestors. Please email me with info, comments or whatever - I would love to hear from you!
