My family has been working on Armistead/Brockwell/
Adcock/Blackstock/Coats/Randall/Palmer/Turner/Brown/West(to name a few) surnames for over 40 years now. My cousin Joan Armistead-Dean, Carol Armistead,and Doug Blanks, they have been a very important part in researching, and has helped out a lot!!
My family has worked many years gathering proof via wills, cenus record images, deeds, compiled Military service records(Muster Rolls), land bounty claims/applications, widow pensions, Mortality Schedule, newspaper articles, birth/death/burial records, to name just a few.
My gggrandfather is Martin Crawford Armistead.
If you would like more information on kinship, please email me. My specialty being a calligrapher, is transcribing old hand writing into reader friendly eyes. I have found many mistakes online when people try to transcibe.
