My beginnings....

Article by Precious13

My name is Sherry Carpenter Mitchell and I have been researching my family for a few years now. It's been a joy and a headache all at once and I'm sure there are many others who feel the same way. Most of my family research is along the east coast from Kentucky, Virginia, South and North Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia. This is also true for my husband's family. Due to some issues with my back, I am not able to travel to do much of my research and rely on the computer quite a bit.
Some of the surnames I've been researching are on my paternal side: CARPENTER, BOGGS, BARKER, GEARHEART, ARCHER, WAGGONER/WAGNER, SKAGGS, SALYERS/SALYER, HALE, HOWARD.
Maternal side are: PRICE, TURNER, ROSS, LIBBY, LEE, ZECH, MILLER, BARISON, MAMPRIN, FURLAN, AND BECCEGATO.
My husband's paternal side: MITCHELL, REEVES, KING, MADDOX, DUKE, CANNADAY, BLANKS, DEASON, MCCLURE.
His maternal side: BELLAMY, STRANGE, CARLAN, DUDLEY/DUDNEY, COTTINGHAM, GARRISON, GOOLSBY, NEAL, PATTERSON, DAILEY, CHATHAM/CHEATHAM, HIGGINBOTHAM, SATTERWHITE, CAMPBELL, CRIBB, NORTON, HUGGINS AND PROCTOR.
These of course are just a few as there are so many more. Glad to get this up and going and I hope to find connections and meet some great people.

Hi Precious13, Hope you are still around. My Grandmother's first name is Precious on my mom's side which would be Gilbertson, and I am also researching my father's side which is Boggs from Ky and VA. Hope we can connect and share notes. PMazie

Never knew someone named Precious (it's an inside joke between me and a friend...nothing bad). My name is Sherry. I'd actually forgotten about this site. Seems there is a good chance we are connected so I'll list my Boggs line here:
My Great Grandparents are Millard Carpenter and Sarah Ellen Boggs
2nd Grandparents: Henry Boggs and Genoah Hester Barker
3rd Grandparents: James (Jim) Boggs and Sarah Barker
4th Grandparents: James Palmer Boggs and Aretta Cox
5th Grandparents: Hugh Boggs, Sr. and Elizabeth Blubaugh
6th Grandparents: James Lee Boggs, Sr. and Elizabeth Jane Clement
7th Grandparents: John Boggs and Mary Keys
8th Grandparents: James Boggs and Elizabeth Bryan
Do you see any connection? If so, I sure do not mind sharing information.
