Most of our ancestors were in Alabama, Georgia,Texas, Missouri, Mississippi, Ohio, the Carolinas, Tennessee, and Kentucky. We now reside in California and do most research via the inter-net.

Robert Allen DeLaRosa
Concerning my son's name being included on your site. His legal name is Robert Allen DeLaRosa. You identify him as Robert Allen DeLaRosa-Savory. Savory is Robert's stepfather's last name, not Robert's. As Robert's closest living biological relative I request that changes be be made to properly identify my son by his legal name only. Mr Savory is of questionable character, especially concerning his behavior around children and it causes a certain amount of distress to see his name associated with my family. Thank you.

Rufus Wheeler letter
The Rufus Wheeler letter has fascinated me from the moment I saw it. I'm amazed at how he names names, children, siblings, etc. I just stumbled onto something this morning. This letter mentions a sister of Rufus' grandfather (John Wheeler) who was a member of the first colony in Georgia. A couple of words have been unreadable to me until now. I now think Rufus wrote "Oglethorpe Colony." James Oglethorpe was the leader of the first colony of Georgia in 1733 which "sailed from Gravesend on the River Thames." I know the dates may not correspond, but Rufus is saying she became a part of that colony.

RE: Robert L Grant, Jr
Thank you very much. I wish others would see it your way. My wife says I spend too much time "digging up bones" but it almost an obsession for me in that I want to ensure others that passed before me are not forgotten. Its the least that I can do for them.
Again, thank you.

RE: David D Rutz
Thank you so very much for transferring Uncle Dave to me and doing his updates. I was so thrilled to have found him the other day. He was the last of 10 children and now they are all joined together on earth and in Heaven. Good luck in all you do. God Speed

RE: McConnell photos
Oscar McConnell was married to my gg-grandmother's sister. Their last living descendant, Elaine (Manning) Dean, maintained family photo albums now in my possession. Included are photos from a McConnell family reunion from 1927 in So. Cal. attended by Oscar, Cora, Charles, and the Kennedy offspring.
