Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family lines since 1995. My first mentor, and someone to whom I am much indebted, was the late Col. Ed Schott. Ed, a volunteer at the National Archives in Washington DC, was a certified professional genealogist. He took a keen interest in helping me develop my research skills. He introduced me to LCol. Patrick G Wardell, author of several Virginia genealogy research books. In the days before internet genealogy, both Ed and Pat provided much guidance and assistance in helping me find and document many of my ancestral lines. Both stressed that just because some hereditary society had approved a family tree it didn't mean that tree accurately reflected an accounting of that family line. From 1995-1998 I consulted Loyd Bockstruck, the noted genealogist from Dallas, Texas, about newly found documents while researching the Hastings aka Hasten families from Southside, Virginia.
Except for two lines that came to America via the Port of New Orleans in the 1850's, all my ancestral lines were in America by early 1700's. Many were in Virginia several years before the Pilgrims' landing on a rock at Plymouth, Massachusetts.

RE: Just read
Thank you for the very interesting story of your Colonial ancestors. Fascinating! Yes, more and more people are getting the DNA tests done. I imagine many more people will find out that their trees are not what they thought! :)

Abernathy and Hargrove families, etc.
Sorry abt above, I typed in and hit the send key
instead of going on with the info. I think that
we may me related. My name is Sue Norris-Lovett-
Pittman- Bunn. Let me explain: I had a father
his name was William Norris, but my father and
mother were not married. My mother's maiden
name was Lovett. But I was adopted when I was
6 months old and never met my bio mom. Bunn is my
married name. I met my bio sister when I was 50
years of age. And my brother, he was 10 years
older than me and my sister was 8 years older.
I knew my brother for 10 years and then he passed
away last November 1st. But I still have my bio
sister. We are related to the Abernathy's,
Hargrove's, Smith's, etc. If you would like, I
am giving you my new email address: airdancr2@gmail.com If you would like you could
email me with that email. Thanks, Sue Bunn

I see you have maintenance of some of the Hargrove family. Are you related? I'd love to share/trade information with you.

RE: Abernathy
My great-grandfather came from TN and settled in Fannin County and is suppose to be buried there, but I have been unable to locate him anyplace. If you happen to find a grave for RP Wilson or Richard P Wilson who died before 1890, please let me know. Thank you so much for adding information for my family.

Thank you so very much for the obit from the Abilene Reporter News. Mr. Abernathy's niece was my grandmother. It is a delight to have this information on his find-a-grave site.

RE: Lucy Landers
That's great. I remember the McBee's gas station across the highway from the church. We used to go there when I was a kid. My great grandfather was Ben Franklin Graham, one of the founders of Cedar Gap Baptist Church.

You wrote me, Please recheck date. I'm confused. Did you take dates from your own tombstone reading? I'm asking because when the cemetery was enumerated a number of years ago, the dates were read as: LANDERS, LUCY 31 JUL 1829 22 NOV. 1891
Upon further research and having my cousin Frank Langley go out and check. It does have the years 1829 and 1891, so I am changing the dates to match the record you linked me to. I don't know what record I used the first time, but it appears you are correct. Thank you!
