On this page are links to some of our family history files. We are building this page as time permits so many documents and items are not posted yet. When we settle in to our new home in Baton Rouge, we'll have much more time to work on this web site!


Some statistics on our family histories:
Mo's family: There are 17 generations on her tree. The number of family members as of May 27 ,2006 is 1,410.  The number of surnames on the tree is 361. There are 424 marriages listed in her records. The earliest birth of an ancestor was in 1509. The average age of death for the 17 generations is 53.10 years.
Mary Ellen's family: There are 13 generations on her tree. The number of family members as of May 14, 2006 is 478. The number of surnames is 96. There are  97marriages listed in her records. The earliest birth is 1660. The average age of death for the 13 generations is 61.5 years.


The following kinship reports contain all of the family lines that we have researched as of May 14, 2006.

Frequently, we are asked how family relationships work. What does it mean to be a first cousin, nine times removed? This chart will hopefully explain the complicated branches that grow on family trees.

Who is a fourth cousin, twice removed? Solve the mystery of family relationships by clicking here!


The family trees, maps and timelines listed below provide a good overview of our family histories. We'll be adding individual pages for our main family surname lines in the future.

We have two types of trees posted. The Ancestor Trees trace back our direct lines of ancestors. The Family Trees iclude everyone in our family histories. The Family Trees open in very small print and you'll need to increase the page size to be able to clearly read them.
