|Most of my ancestors came from England, Ireland and Scotland, some even from France, Wales and Holland.Arriving in America, some as far back as before the Mayflower, they settled in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey but the majority were pioneer settlers of the South and settled in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Louisiana, Kentucky, Texas and Florida.|
Some surnames include Adams, Alderman, Beauchamp, Carlton, Carver, Collamore, Collins, Fortescue, Frier, Grantham, Gross, Hancock, Handcock, Harris, Hendry, Hext, Hill, Hollingsworth, Hooper, Knight, Lewis, McFail, Parnell, Peacock, Roberts, Rogers, Sloan, Spencer, Strickland, Tanner, Tillis, Tullos, Wilder and Woodson, to name a few.
At present I am researching Lewis Washington Tanner, b.abt 1845 possibly from Georgia and his wife Arminda Honey Hooper, b.abt 1869. Lewis was a cook in the Union Army at the age of 16. I am also researching Walter William Adams
b.abt 1854 in Kentucky and his wife Victoria Hill, b.abt 1860 also in Kentucky.
Would welcome any queries and or assistence on any of these names.
