I am married with four (4) grown children and four (4) grandchildren. I became interested in genealogy in 1979 when I began to fill in the large Family Bible that someone gave us as a wedding present. Most of the people that could have helped me were already dead, so grave markers & tombstones became another way for me to get information. I have been interested in our family tree since that time and have compiled and written two (2) books, The Stephenson Family: Past & Present and co-authored The Barnhill Family with Louise Gillespie Lynch. My books may be found in the Library of Congress and in various public and University Libraries across the USA.
