Come on in and make yourself at home. I have just made some sweet iced tea and the tea-cakes are fresh out of the oven. We
will chat about our families and all things Southern. My families were original settlers in Old Irwin County. I am proud of
everyone of them and on these pages I hope to share that love with you.
These are Family Lines we are researching:
Gentry, Luke, Mauldin, Tomberlin
Tucker, Cleghorn, Ross, Driver,
Clements, and many more.
Keeper of Family Memories
Every family needs to have a few members bitten by "the genealogy bug". The only problem with this is that once
bitten you are never the same. Cemeteries, old records, old pictures and memories fill your every waking moment. No amount
of medicine seems to help this terrible afflection.
This is my husbands parents, at their 50th wedding anniversary.
