"'Men work together,' I told him from the heart,|
'Whether they work together or apart.'"
from "The Tuft of Flowers" by Robert Frost
My entries are periodically updated to my best current information for each individual. At times it is not the same as the information on the gravestone. If so, it is because I consider alternate source(s) more accurate. If you have corrections, additional data or questions on any of them, I will be happy to hear from you and to compare sources and information. My contributions are based on personal research on the various surnames of my heritage: Thomas, Elder, Pierce, Hall, Smith, Shumake, Waldrip, Faver, Anderson, Ammons, Martin and Oliver.
