I started this journey of my ancestry in 2006, very little to go on, join findagrave in 2010, started using the phrase "Finding my kin folks" when i found the website of the Hamiltons my kin and they are also kin to Willie Nelson, through the Greenhaw who married into the Hamilton's, that is were they mention kin folks a lot? Found who is my grand mother was and many others. I am also kin to 1st Lady Mary Ann Todd 4th Cousin, 18th President Ulysses S. Grant 5th Cousin, 2nd Cousin to President George Washington, Daniel Boone's sister Sarah "Sally" Boone my 7th Grand Mother, off of the Salathiel Martin and his wife last name Cook it will take you to Odin 600 Norway a very Interesting line? King Henry V111, Willie Nelson a 2nd Cousin, but i dont have any talent like willie but we do have one thing in common and that we both have a love for the weed ha ha? Roy Acuff, Hugh Hefner is a 2nd Cousin, Hachaliah Bailey, who is credited with having the first circus in America, with Old Bet the Elephant. And of course many others? Growing up i did'nt like my last name much for i was teased alot about it names like pokesalad, pokejuice, but after seeing my ancestry line i now am very proud of it, wish i would of knowned that back then, i even wanted too change my last name at one point.
