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.

RE: Aldridge Faulkner #79634430
Hi Joy,
I also have Aldridge born in Kentucky and he died in Sacramento County, CA. Dick Faulkner in the same cemetery was born in Oklahoma. Perhaps you have the two confused??
Hope this helps.

RE: Apel kin
Joy, they came from around Sachsweimal, Eisenachunter, Germany. My great great grandfather was born in Sasee Weimer Germany. They came over by ship to New Orleans in 1850 and from they they went to Herman, MO.
Thank you for replying!

Apel kin
Joy, I see your maiden name was Apel--which is also mine, plus I saw you had left a flower on my great grandmother Amelia Seeger Apel. Could you tell me the connection?
Thank you so much!
