Welcome to our Site - we are currently doing reconstruction & maintenance !!!
The majority of the features have been restored, others are in progress, but it's going well. !
This site is dedicated in honor to all the loved ones who've come before us.
They have gone from us physically, but are ever present in our memories. I hope that this site will help kindle an interest in the rich heritage that we all share. These pages are also dedicated to my extended family, some I've known of for years, and some of you I'm just now getting to know; thanks to the Internet and the study
of our common history. We are researching the Burlison/Burleson, Allen, Ray, Pettit, Hensley, Riddle, Holcombe, Carter, Dillingham, Cole, Crump, Edwards, Craig, Casey, Cato, Cherry, Glover, Ford, Lamb & many more families, please drop us a line if you can help us on these families, or if you just want to talk genealogy research in general.
Special disclaimer note concerning "The Family Tree"
Note: Data on this Family Tree is derived from many sources, let me know of additions or corrections that need to be made. We strive to
keep the information accurate, but make no claim of 100% accuracy. We have tried to only include data that can be found in 'public' sources or sometimes anecdotal information. If anyone would like us to strike, edit or
otherwise remove anything, please just let us know.
Special Note of Appreciation to Loren S. Ray
Loren is our cousin who is from Buncombe Co., North Carolina. He has been sharing a great deal of his life's study of his
and many allied families with me and I feel very honored that he is a part of this endeavor. His work forms a large percentage
of our current database as regards the many families we're related to who lived or are living in the Buncombe Co., and
surrounding area in North Carolina.
Note of Thanks

additions, and for just writing to make me aware of all my 'new' found cousins. I'd like
