THIS INFORMATION IS COMPILED FROM MANY SOURCES, MUCH OF WHICH HAS NOT YET BEEN PROVEN.ANY CORRECTIONS OR ADDITIONS WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.Often there is more than one viewpoint on the same person or event. When I have found that, I have attempted to show the different viewpoints, even when they are contradicting.Sometimes this is in the "notes" section, and sometimes in the "source" section.
I found this verse hand written in my grandfather's things: Deuteronomy 29:29
"The secret things belong unto The Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever that we may do all the words of the law."
My prayer is that we may draw strength from our Christian heritage, learn from mistakes made, and love and serve God better by knowing our family history.
