I've been researching my family "forest" for a year now. I don't consider myself to be experienced in genealogy whatsoever; I still consider myself to be a "newbie". I don't think I'll ever fully know what I'm exactly doing.
My family lines consist of Holmes' and Smiths' from Smyth County, Virginia; Foster's and Hodge's from Pulaski County, Virginia; and Mooney's (also Moony) and Wall's from Carroll and Grayson County (also Wythe County), Virginia. Although as I typed all of that, I realize that in my research, I've found that my family is actually from many more locales than just those that I listed.
I'm also researching my husbands' family, the Davis' & Farmer's from Pulaski County, Virginia, and the Burton's and O'Dell's from Pulaski County, Virginia.
So I guess that's about it... So if I think of anything else, I'll add it...
My name is Andrea Echols Moorehead. My great-great grandfather was Robert Nathaniel Echols. My great-grandfather was Samuel Clifford Echols. Could there be any way we are related? I am researching the Echols Family Tree.
RE: Jonathan D. Nice to meet you, Cassandra. If you will search for Mary Hutchison Grogan Coleman on Find A Grave you can read the family history. Mary married Robert Spillsby Coleman in Calloway Co., Kentucky. Their daughter Emily Rebecca Coleman married William A. Heathcott. Their son William A. Heathcott Jr. married Sarah E. Jordan. Their daughter Verna M. Heathcott married Orland C. Davis. Their daughter Marie M. Davis married my father.
Please also give me your lineage. I too like to know my family. Look forward to hearing from you.
RE: Albert, Troy D. If you're talking about Kimberly "buried" next to Troy Dale Albert Jr, I never said she was "buried", I said her name is "on the same stone". Sometimes it helps people to put the deceased in context with their relatives when they have the names of the spouses. If I had thought she was buried, I would have made her a memorial.
Electra Mooney Electra Mooney is my husband's GGGG Grandmother. I noticed she's related to you as well. Would you happen to have a picture you could share? I am just starting to research this line. We are related to Laura Amelia Roseberry - Electra's Mother.
