I have been doing research on my family since 1971. I started by asking a great uncle who his parents and grandparents were. We went to the cemetery where they were buried and he told me how everyone in the cemetery were related. I have been going to cemeteries ever since. I am doing family research on the families of: Whitehead, Baley, McIntire, Pickens, Pyron, Hudspeth, Estes, Kennedy, Boyd, Tims, Boston. Repult, Marlin, Partlow, Graves, Reynolds, Grimes, Bryan, Boone, Ruff, Robinson, Summer, West, Hulsey, Rutherford, McBrayer, Young, Gilbert, Burleson, Self, Hodson, Glidewell, Warren and others. I am also researching names on my wife's family: Mallory, Bramlett, Welborn, Ellis, West, Burgess, Shaw, Butler, Caldwell, Chapman, Medlock, Gambrell, Hester, Robinson and others. I am also researching the Samuel Shannon, Jr. family of Shannon, Lee County, Mississippi.
