a treasure trove in finding my family roots. "Thanks" for
all the hard work in producing this site. My grand kids

I just found your sit and was so excited. I am the daughter of John Harris Woodall and Millicent Rose Westbrook. I knew that my father married after he and my mother divorced and could remember her name was Flora Holliday but that is all. Do you have any other facts besides their marrage year. Would love to have what I have gathered with you. Thanks for any help, Terry W. Ramsbotham

I noticed there hasn't been much activity on this account in a while, but I have been trying to correct an error in the listing of my father. He didn't die living in Lake Panasoffkee, FL and he was never married to a woman named Marjorie. I think someone mixed up my father, James A. Lee Collum, (born) 1/1/1920 with another James Collum. Having looked through the descendant list, the name is pretty common. I would love to give the correct information about my mother and all my father's decendants if someone would contact me at
Thanks, Jerry Collum Smith

Hi Mary, just sitting here looking over all the relatives of Thomas. I don't know whether you could add my marriage onto the site or not. If you can let me know and I will give you the information you would need. Wanda was glad she got the site. She still doesn't know how she happened to get it, but was glad she did.
Love You,

Hi Mary, Some how my daughter got this site on her email. She asked me if I had sent it to her. Some how I lost the one you had sent to me. The next time I have to go to Hartwell and I go on the by pass in Anderson, I will call you and maybe we can meet and have lunch together. Email me your phone number. I didn't know you were a nurse. My daughter is a nurse also. She works on the Oncology floor at Greenville Memorial Hospital. Hope to get together soon.

Hi. I just visited your site by searching my own name and found it very interesting. Couldn't find my family in there though. Wondered if you could have some info on finding my roots. I heard my grandfather came from somewhere in North Carolina and was related to a former governor of the state. Apparently the Woodall family had large land holdings there too. Then my grandfather migrated to Breaux Bridge, La. as a trapper and fisherman. He eventually came to Amite County and settled near Liberty,Ms. From there my father, now deceased Willie Clifton Woodall, and I Perry Woodall live here near Magnolia. My grandfather's name was Benjamin Crawford Woodall and he was married to Margaret Honea. There are mechanics and blacksmiths in my family. It seems our Woodall family roots are all country folk as is the case here today. Also my family is white caucasian since I don't know who I'm writing to I thought I would mention that if I'm barking up the wrong tree. Let me know if you can have some insight or steer me in the right direction. I have plenty of time now to research. Thanks very much. PLW.

I would love to talk with you! I just came accross your website while doing a google search for one of my ggggrandfathers (not sure at this moment witch great he is) Joseph Taylor Woodall.
After looking a several pages on your website and just hitting the tip of the ice burge I'm afraid I have seen that we may be kin in several different ways. I find one of the pictures you have very interesing as two of the children in the picture are named after two of my grandfathers Littleton Meeks and James Anderson.
Please email me at I would love to see what kind of tangles we can

Looking forward to hearing from you,

I found your website because I was interested in Deforrest Allgood Owens, found here:

He was "Paw Paw Owens" to our family, and I thought his name was Foster, although I remember vaguely that Foster was a nickname.

When I was born in June 1954, our family rented an apartment in his large Victorian home in Cave Spring, Georgia. By that time, he was married to "Granny Owens," whose name was Cora. I do not know her maiden name. Our family lived in that apartment until 1958, I believe, but we stayed in close touch with Paw Paw and Granny until they passed away, Paw Paw in 1959, and Granny in 1965. I think they are both buried in Oak Knoll Cemetery in Rome, Georgia.

I did not realize Paw Paw was married once before, but I remember Jim (James Scott) Owens and Bill (William Hunt) and Mozelle Owens, in particular. I attended school with Wanda Faye, Bobby Gene and Janice Lucille, Jim's children.

Paw Paw and Granny had children together, as well. I remember Joe and Betty, and I think they had a son named David. Joe married Alice (I don't know her maiden name), and the last I heard, they live in Rome, Georgia. Betty married Bill Loadholtz and the last I was in touch, (in the early 70's) they lived in Jacksonville, Florida.

I carry warm, fond memories of Paw Paw and Granny. A number of years ago, I took a tour of the old Victorian home we shared with them.

This is probably an area you're not really exploring, but I am positive these people are members of Deforrest Allgood Owens' family.

Thanks, Mary, for maintaing this site for so many families to share notes. My great aunt died last Tuesday and I wanted to share with the Collum family:

Lois Vivian Collum Pruett died Tuesday, July 3, 2007 in San Antonio, Texas.

She was born April 3, 1914 in Snyder, Texas, the 6th child of Robert William Collum and Ida Ann Jones. Shortly after her birth the family filed a homestead near Lovington in Lea County, New Mexico, where she grew up. Always a bright and feisty child, she thrived on the Collum Ranch, working hard and attending school. She graduated from Lovington High in 1930 at age 16.
On April 24, 1932 she married Benjamin Jess Pruett in Eddy County, New Mexico. He preceded her in death on April 19, 1980.
She is survived by too many loving family members to mention, but the most important are her daughter, Deborah Dale Pruett Young, son-in-law James Young, and granddaughter Kimberlee Marshall.
Graveside services will be held Friday, July 6th at West End Cemetery in Stephenville, Texas where she will be laid to rest beside her beloved Jess.

I have lots of info on Seth and Maybelle's descendants. I also would like to find more info on Maybelle and have been stuck for quite some time. Perhaps you could provide some insight.

Just wanted to let you know that you have a great website here. I found a lot of useful information to connect to my family tree; especially the Woodalls. Thanks for your time and effort in posting all of this! I would like to share with you some info on Anderson Woodall, son of James Sampson Woodall Jr. and Ellender DeBoe. He was my 3rd Great Grandfather and my grandmother had written down before she died that he was married to Jemira (Maury) Ann Hill. According to the 1900 census, he was b. Oct. 1826 and his wife Jemira was b. Nov. 1830. The Oscar H. was my great Grandfather and Anderson's Grandson. You may already have this info somewhere but if not, I thought you might want to add it. I had never heard of Anderson being married to anyone other than Maury Hill so I was a little surprised to see him being married to someone else. Anyway, thanks again for the great descendant story!

I found your site at rootsweb, and have been trying to find info on your #167.] Salatheil Woodall 7th gen/ and his second wife that I found on the census in 1900, San Marcos Twp, Hays County, Texas.. Lucy T. Brownley is
in her father's bible at the VSL death: Lucy T. Woodall Sept 26, 1902. When I scrolled 1900 for her I found her as second wife of S. Woodall,and recently came across this Salatheil in the same area, son was living
with them in 1900. It fit,- her sister was SarahAlice Duval Brownley who m Roger Atkinson and moved to Texas-she died in Dewitt County. Lucy is the sister of my great grandfather. She was born in "Eastern View"
, Newtown, King & Queen County, Virginia and after her father Joseph Temple Brownley died her mother Mary Catherine Howerton Brownley opened up a
school, which Lucy taught at and they recently added this small log
structure to the museum of King & Queen County, Virginia Historical Society.
Most people at the historical society thought she died c. 1900, a spinster.
Then I came across her father's bible with her death date & last name of
Woodall, I have had a very difficult time tracing her ancestry since King &
Queen was a burned county from the civil war. Hoped her new " Family"
might have info on her...
Thanks, I enjoyed your site, and it gave me a good idea of her husband's
line.. when I emailed you at : chrkee44@bellsouth. net it failed.

I don't think I've ever seen more Woodall information on one sight before. I'm the grandson of Seymour Woodall, who you have as Semer, but that's ok because you have the only sight that I've ever seen him listed on. There are a lot of Woodall's in and around Lincoln Co., WV and I would say that most, if not all of them are in your line. I can give you what info I have if you would like.

I am searching my Collum family and have hit a brick wall. Maybe you can help. My grandfather, Edward Collum was born in 1914. He married Louella Frances Kinard and they had two children Sara Frances and Carolyn Jean. I believe they were married in Montgomery, AL. They divorced soon after the children were born. I heard he remarried but have no info to back it up. I also think that Edward had a sister named Peggy. My mom thinks they called his father Shorty. I did hear that Edward was in prison for stealing, but where and I when is unsure.
I hope that you can help me find my family.
Thank you,

I was very interested to find your geneology site that included my grandmother's family (Margaret Cully Conner). I can help you correct and update some of the information about my branch of this family tree if you would like. Please let me know how I can help. One thing for now, I am the child of Michael Wesley Long and Dianne Garrison. Michael Cully Long is also the son of Michael Wesley and Dianne. However, Wesley Long is the son of Michael Wesley Long and Pamela Unknown. My father was also married to Glenda Unknown and adopted one child named Angela. I can provide information about the children and marriages of some of the other people of my generation if you would like! I really enjoyed finding your site!

He worked for Trump Bros. Machine Co. there around 1900. Although my grandfather was born in England in 1869, I wonder if we share a link somehow?

Hi Mary,

Very nice site. Thanks for sharing your research with us all. On the Gunter line, Joshua Gutnter and Keziah, are my gggg-grandparents. Able was Zimri Gunter's father, and Zimri was my g-grandmother's [Allie (Gunter) Blackwell] father. Able is not Joshua's grandchild. Perhaps if you go to Gunter Family web-site [specifically for information and trees for the decendants of Joshua Gunter], it will help you. The information is from many years of Gunter research by L.H. Buff, who authored of the Gunter family story/research book "Gunters Along the Edisto." It's about the descendants of Russel Gunter; the single most important book about the line of "Joshua Gunter" written. Unfortunately, L.H.'s book is now out of print, but you can contact L.H. from the site if you have research issues and updates. It will help you complete your tree, I'm sure.


Hope I have helped you. Best wishes from a very distant cousin.

Albert "Buddy" Blackwell

I was interested in your site for several reasons. My grandmother's maiden name was Catherine Delores Perkins. She married James Sanford Keating on Dec 5, 1898 or Dec 5, 1897, at Goldthwaithe, Mills Co., (Mulllins, Tx.) My grandfather's father was James Wooten Keating. I have not had any luck in finding the father of James Wooten Keating. If you have any information on the Keating side, I would love to hear from you. I am lost as far as where his father came from and the trip to America. I was delighted to see your information, and hope to hear from you. Keep up the good work.

I appreciate the depth that your website contains on the family name of Morgans. One of my brick walls is a James Lafayette Morgan that was born in 1855 and died in 1936. He and his last wife (Mary Ellen Leonard Smith) is buried in the Condon Grove Cemetery in Johnston County, Tishomingo, Oklahoma. If you ever run across these names I would be very interested in what anyone has found.
Thanks, family of Gibson/Leonard/Smith/Morgan......

I am related to Autry Ladell Liles. I am his daughter. I also have a sister named Sharon. My mothers name is Peggy Jo. I have been trying to find Jasper's side of the family. My dad says he thinks they came from TN. I found alot of people on my grandmothers side that dates all the way back to 1738. I am trying to go back further. I actually found some of my grandmothers people in Alabama and spoke to some of them. It is really cool. I love doing this stuff. Well, I just wanted to drop you a line. Talk to you later.

Mom's Mother died when she was was born in 1998.

couple of days than I ever know. Thanks Mary I appreciate.

I am still in the kindergarten stage of this computer stuff,
about six months and struggling.
Thanks again for your research efforts. Galen

Hi Mary! I'm at my mom's sharing the website with her and enjoying it soooo much! You have done such a great job and it boggles the mind to think of all of the hard work that you have put in! Thanks for helping us to remember those that are no longer with us! Just a couple of notes: Jim and Bob (Robert Eugene) were also Henry and Frances' boys--born in TX. I can send you info on them later on. Also, I think I told you, but Anne Branum Tabor was married to my Grandma Tabor's brother in law--Willie Tabor (Bill). So, Rachel (grandma) and Anne were married to brothers. My grandpa was Albert Thomas Tabor. They were married not long after the Morgan's moved to TX. If you have any ideas on how to look further into the Tabor's I'd appreciate your help. Is there any info where you can look a specific family name that may have a website up? I'd like to look for the Pryors.
Thanks! Many hugs!
