I was born In IL. grew up in WV and now live in Western KY. My parents are Guy Russell Via & Mary Angela (Meadows) Via Crites..
My paternal grandparents were Eura Mae (Stephens) and Willie Edward Via. They lived in Paducah Ky. However their family was mainly from Graves and Hickman Counties.
My maternal grandparents were Mary Elizabeth (Alderson) and Roby Edward Meadows. They also lived in Paducah but their families were in Calloway and Henderson Counties in KY and Henry County TN.
I became interested in my family tree when I inherited my grandparents pictures and didn't know who they were. Since then my interest has grown. I have met many friends and family since I started that I would have never gotten to meet otherwise.
A few Surnames I am interested in:
Alderson, Book, Bogard, Crites, Edwards, Elkins, Franklin, Lamb, Meadows, Pace, Stephens, Via
