Hi I don't know much about my family history. My father's name is Elree Troutman from Statesville North Carolina. He had about 10 other brothers & sisters. I dont even know all their names. Let me see, I think some of them were Jewel, Roslie, Charles, Rufus, Grey. My Grandmother's name was Annie Rose Pratt Troutman, she was English. My grandfather was Franklin Jefferson or Jefferson Franklin Troutman which was German. He was a blacksmith. My grandmother was supposivily name best dressed in town. I really don't know much more. I havent spoken to my father since I was 15 years old. Well that was about 22 years ago. I remember him telling me that the family has a reunion every year though. However I have always wanted to know a little more. If any of them ring a bell to any of you please let me know.
