I wouldn't call myself a genealogist, but rather, someone who has the results of decades of genealogy research conducted by others. My grandfather, H.C. Gray, and mother, Dorothy Gray Christoffersen, researched families including (but not limited to) Gray, Grant, Ringgold, Brooks, Carter, Carothers, Ussery, Alsup, Mayfield, Goad, Irwin, White, Whitworth, Calvert, etc., through MS, TN, GA, NC, VA, MD, and such back to the 1600-1700's. My father's sister & their uncle compiled much information about their Christoffersen, Mortensen, Jacobsen, and Sorensen families who emigrated from Denmark in the late 1800's. I am interested in preserving & sharing family history & filling in the blanks. Unfortunately, I have little time to research documents at courthouses & libraries outside of Middle TN. Having seen plenty of inaccurate "information" on the internet, I take everything not documented with a grain of salt.
Alsup facebook group I have started a group on facebook called The Direct Descendants of Drury Alsup and Tabitha Brown. I invite descendants of theirs to join the group and maybe we can share family stories and knowledge. Peggy
RE: Malinda McKinney Ussery I agree with you - believe but verify. And these McKinneys are so difficult to find. Some I can find everything about and some I just cannot find. Again, there is so much misinformation and some people put it out there and just don't care that it is wrong. They seen to just want to get numbers - not have the correct information for future generations. If I have something wrong I welcome the corrections too. To me it is an on going process. Thanx
Lycurgus Alsup You indicated that you have pictures of Lycurgus Alsup related to his service in the Confederate Army, also E.B. Alsup and W Whithworth... I would love to have a copy of these photos. Lycurgus was my great Grandfather.
James Brooks Thanks for the info On Newton Alsup who married my relative Mary Cottle. Would you like me to transfer Newton to you I could not get the photo to come up? Patricia Gilliland Devoti Wildwood, Missouri
