Re: My Family Line
Sounds like we are in the same boat, Weldon, and just might be from the same branch of the tree. My paternal gradmother's maiden name is Winebarger. Her family originally owned land somewhere around Grandfather Mountain in NC. I believe my great-grandfather's name was William and he married a member of the Carroll family. My great-grandmother died when I was young, and I don't remember her first name. They came to Virginia somewhere around the turn of the century, via Abingdon. Now, most of the family lives not far from yours, in Southwestern Virginia. Most of the family lives in Wise, Lee, Russell, and Scott counties.
If I were closer to home, I live in Greenville, Miss. now, I could find out more information.
