My family line surnames include the following, going backward on my father's side through his mother: Galloway, Evans, Templeton, Holder, Hopkins, Jennings, Anderson, Walker and Shockley. From my father's father, names go from Leonard (Ireland ca 1850), to Widener, Hall, Singleton, Burtz, Orisby. On my mother's side, through her father was Austin, Welch, Hoge (to Scotland, at least 1660), Hume (to Scotland), Nichols, Hughes or Hughs, Click (or Gluck, Germanic in origin), Skiles. On my mother's side, through her mother, was King, Cunningham (to Scotland), Elliott (to Ireland), Widner, Lewis, and Hughes/Hughs (to Wales in 1665).
There are at least three relatives in my tree who fought in the American Revolution and several who were in the American Civil War.
I have sought not to add FAG individuals to whom I am not related, although there are a couple of exceptions. Requests for transfers will be granted according to FAG guidelines or at my personal discretion. FAG guidelines are not my first rule of thumb. :)
photo of Miranda Holder Templeton Hello! I think we are probably related; the surnames list include a bunch who are connected to my tree, too. I am working on a problem with Miranda Eveline Holder Templeton's parentage; I show that she is the daughter of Spencer Holder and Elizabeth Hopkins Holder. However, I also show a step-sister by the name of Maranda "Randa" Evaline Holder Sparkman, who married William Reed Sparkman. I show Randa's parents to be the same Spencer Holder and another wife, Elizabeth "Betty" Nichols Holder. I don't think that Spencer would name 2 daughters the same, so I think that there is an error somewhere, but I can't find it. Can you help untangle this mystery, please? I am related to another of Spencer's daughters, Elizbeth Holder Holland. She was my 2nd great grandfather's first wife. After she died, Seaborn married Charlotte Cope, who I came through. Thanks so much for the photo any help you can offer! Blessings! Pam Holland Mackey
Hardin death picture Sir you did a very good ciograpgy of Col Hardin killed 1792-however the lithograph is that of his grandson who was killed in Mexican War-it should be moved to Find A Grave Memorial# 5834594
RE: Hoge and Tate I actually have 2 distinct and separate Tate lines. One from my paternal line out of Warren, Sequatchie, Bledsoe and many other counties in TN. The other from my marriage out of Rockingham County, NC.
