This will be the home for all the information on our family and the various branches within. This is not entirely my own work, but I have worked hard to verify the individuals that are included, and have included the documentation that I’m working on here.
I have protected this area in deference to the living people that belong to these branches of my family, and out of respect for their privacy. If you wish access to one or more of these surnames, you may feel free to email me and I will go about giving you access or helping you with your records request/verification/curiosity. If I refuse you access, it is only with these motives in mind; I may revisit the request if I find a better way to juggle this, or I may (as I mentioned before) just send you the documents pertaining to your area of inquiry.
Some of the surnames included are (in alphabetical order):
Barstow of New York and Texas.
Billingslea (Billingsley, Billingsly) of England, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi, and Texas.
