Bio and Links
Hi. I became interested in genealogy years ago. It must run in the family. My grandfather's mother was writing letters back around the turn of the century.

I'm researching the following surnames: Green, Martin, Young, Flowers, Kuykendall, Tolan, Medlin, and Whitwell. Most of my kin are Irish, Scottish, and haven't found out yet. My closest ancestors are buried in Texas.

I am also working on my husband's genealogy. His family names are Courtright, Rutan, Coykendall, Kelley, Niccolls.

I now live in Temple, TX, with my husband and our Australian Cattle Dog. I enjoy genealogy, exploring cemeteries, and reading.

Hi Darlene, I'm not sure but I think I may be your cousin. My parents were Loyce and Gail Campbell. Are you uncle Jay's daughter? Please reply.
Thanks, Debra

RE: Medlins
Hi Darlene.

Are you a relative of the Medlins ? I like to transfer to family, if possible.

Hi Darlene,

I too am researching Youngs (SC to Mississippi early 1800's,on to Mobile,Ala 1860's.) The only sister to my Grandmother(Georgia Lucille Young)was Inez Flowers(married Lonnie Flowers in Alabam, and are buried there.)

My Youngs begin with JOHN YOUNG(abt 1776)son GREEN YOUNG(1805-sc on to Indian Territory in what is not Alabama on to Mississippi.) my direct descendant AXEXANDER YOUNG(B:1827 Clarke County,Mississippi to MOBILE ALA 1860)

My gr grandfather was GEORGE WASHINGTON YOUNG.

Would any of these Youngs' sound familar?
