Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in 1926. I started working on my family tree in 2000. I was learning what little I know about computers at the same time.Had never touched one until my children talked me into it in 1999 (Nov) For Christmas that year my Daughter and Son-in-law gave me the Family Tree Maker.I had a few notes that I had writen down from my Mother. Luck would have it that I found her family in Kentucky with a lot of help from Doug Moore. At this time I am working on the families from around Allen, Adair, Barren, Metcalfe, Warren and Monroe County, Kentucky, Warren County, Tennessee, and Caswell County, North Carolina.Hagan, Crisp, Goodman, Garman and Rowe in KY. Crisp, Warren, Anderson, Snipes, Masey and Henegar in Tennessee. Crisp, Warren, Cooper and many more in North Carolina.I Live in California. Seems that I have left the impression that I live in places where I am searching. I don't travel around anymore since 2005.Thanks to all who have posted memorials.

The Warren Family

I have bee trying to find the parents of Lavenia for quite some time.
Can you verify the names and dates of her siblings and children along with her parents?

Thanks, Arlene

RE: Apel Family
HI Joy,

Since Apel is not a real common name, you are probably related to the East Texas Apels. My next door neighbor is an Apel. Her ancestor Apel was Sheriff of Wood County in the early 1900's. Some of the Apels lived here in East Texas, and some are buried here, and some of them lived in Dallas, etc.

I did a little work on her family, but it has been a while. I think the great grandfather was Godfried Apel.

Thanks for writing, if I can find anything off hand, I will send you a note.

Joy, I noticed you had info posted about the Masey's in Warren County. We are from the Stephen Anderson line that moved to Texas after the civil war. We'd appreciate any information you can share. Thank you in advance for your time! Take Care, Chris

George W. Darnell obit.
Ms. Hess----I live within one mile of the Morrison, TN Cemetery. Through local newspaper research I have discovered the 1939 obit. for George W. Darnell(Find A Grave# 75697013). Could you possibly transfer management of this memorial to me(#48229270) so that I may add this obit. to Mr. Darnell's biography?

William Warren
I am trying to figure out a big puzzle here and I hope you can help - you have William (71823653) listed with Thomas and Rachel Sargent as parents. All I can find is Rachel Sargent married to John Warren. Also William married to Mary Elizabeth Hackley. Can you help me out - do I have the wrong line? you can email me if you wish.
