I've been doing Genealogy since 2009. I have researched both sides of my Family Tree and found many, many interesting people, stories, Family Histories ... I've met a lot of wonderful people and have had some very interesting talks, listening to stories about people I'm related to, as well as stories about people not in my Family. I have also met many distant cousins who have become good friends. My Family names on my Father's Paternal side are Mecum, Morris, Campbell, Hammack, Wilkerson, Walker, Perry, and Watson in Forsyth, Stokes, and Guilford Counties in North Carolina. On his Maternal side are Crayton, Efird, Page, Smith, Culp, Coble, Cagle and Harward in Stanly County in North Carolina. On my Mother's Paternal side the names are O'Neal, Harlan, Keller, Bunten, Osborn, Duncan, and Robinson in Putnam and Hendricks Counties in Central Indiana, and Harris in Kentucky. On her Maternal side are Noland, Matthews, Chenowith, Mowbray, Bachtenkircher, and Lister in White, Jasper, and Pulaski Counties in Northern Indiana, Beach in West Virginia and Ohio, and Heil/Hile/Hyle in Pennsylvania. If you are related, please contact me. I love meeting new cousins! If I can help you, please ask. I love to help people find their own Family Histories. And please use any pictures, stories, etc. that I have posted here in any way that you see fit. We are all Family, they belong to all of us! I look forward to hearing from you! Carolyn Marie Mecum Pinkerton PS As a result of something that just happened to me, yes, I will link people, no proof needed. If you want to link people, then obviously you've done your homework. AND, I am related either by blood or marriage to everyone I've made a Memorial for. However, if I have a person who is a closer relation to you, yes, I will transfer them to you. I'm not looking for numbers, I'm looking for Family!
RE: James Lunsford You are more than welcome. Sorry it's not real clear, badly discolored, but still not bad considering the age. If you want a picture of it sent directly to you that has not been resized let me know.

Memorial Concerning Johann Georg Ehrenfried Carolyn, I have reason to believe I am related to Johann Georg Ehrenfried, the subject of a memorial you wrote, on my mother's side, and I am curious about the sources you consulted in writing your memorial, as I would like to pursue further research. Any help you can offer would be appreciated!
