Special Message: I am working on a new book titled “A Walk with my Ancestors! I have also had a new DNA test taken and have tested other family members as well which will be in the new book! I am very excited about writing of my Appalachian people and am working on fact checking each and every name from my tree. Collecting data to show photographs when available, birth, marriage, death and lastly census records and land grants, military records, and many many stories!

I was born in 1955 in Hyden, Kentucky! We lived in a small home in Thousandsticks, just a few miles from Hyden. We farmed the land and had family all around us, most of which lived on Davidsons Fork Rd, or very close by! Many of my relatives were coal miners, and still are today. My parents moved away when we were small children, but, I never forgot my Kentucky Home!
I went on to college and earned an MBA. I didn’t know a whole lot about my Ancestors until I started this research. I started looking in to who they were, and all those wonderful stories I remembered hearing as a child. It was then, that I knew, I had to write it down and document it in a book! Thus, “A walk with my Ancestors”!
This book is dedicated to my Mother, Father, and all my siblings and the many cousins who have contributed to my research. God Bless, I love you all!
My fondest memory is when we were small we used to travel to the airport to watch the planes take off and land! Here is a photo of most of us in it!
