Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been working on my family tree for a few years now. My family tree includes the surnames Corbett (Corbet, FitzCorbet), Leichliter, Barcus (Barchus), Rhoades, Taliaferro, Tolliver (Toliver), McHaffie, Spittler and Secrest to name a few. Most of my family came from Pennsylvania and Virginia.

So far during my research I found on my mother's side of the family we are related to pioneer Daniel Boone, President George Washington, President James Madison, General Robert E Lee, and Thomas Green Clemson - the driving force and namesake of Clemson University. All of these relationships are by marriage but of course those count as well.

**FYI** I gladly will correct any information that I have if it is listed incorrectly. I try and research maiden names and middle names if I can but the information on the web is not always accurate. I also try to connect as many family members as I can, it just makes it easier for the next person's
research. A simple please and/or thank you with your request is enough. Thank you!

**The flowers section of each memorial is NOT the place to send instructions for myself or a family tree. If you would like me to link family together send me a message or edit through the proper channels.**

**You may use any of the photos I have taken for your own personal use, just please cite the source.

Mose Burr Stephens #81286686
Thank you for adding the information from his death certificate to his memorial. I appreciate it very much. Also, I did find where his middle name is 'Burr' so I submitted an edit request to add it.

Thanks again for all your help.
