I am a retired teacher and have been researching two family lines with much frustration and many dead ends. My Ferdinand A. Kruger (b. circa 1831, Saxony)family started out in Madison, IN and ended up in Paducah, KY. His immigration information-unknown. William Henry Starr's wife Mahala A. Williamson Bird Starr is my other mystery. Her Cherokee roots are simply listed as Cherokee Nation East-some records say Randolph Co., NC. I have posted Sarah Bird Starr Knowles' picture who is shown with my grandmother Margie Bradshaw Hendricks. Sarah was my gg-grandmother. I deeply appreciate the generosity of other genealogists and hope I can help as well.
