In this day and time, we live where business and family consumes much of our time. Taking on hobbies such as genealogy could be viewed as difficult. Well that is not the case. The internet my friends is the enabler, the speed, access to volumes of public information and the available network of hobbyist that support genealogy.

With only an hour or two a week, you will be amazed at how fast you will fill your curiousity, and build a connected database in perpetuity for your family.

Our family ancestors consist of Sealy, Jones, Ogletree, Graham, Lemon, Lively, Jefferson, Maples, Harris, Smith, Franklin, Crockett, Drake, Norwood, Sigmon, Deal, Starnes, Methvin, Stewart,Telford, Moose, Morris, Howle, Carroll, Blake, Wood, Carter, Knox, Propst, Williams, Goforth, Wike, Scronce, Pope, Davenport, Pierce, Isaac, Abernathy, Jarrett to name a few.

We also have fought in the American Revolution, the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Desert Storm w many relatives in these conflicts w Pow's, Mia's and lives lost in these wars.
