The mission of this website is to:
  1. share what I have learned about my children's ancestors, and
  2. contact descendants of those ancestors with the hope of learning more about the family.

I am indebted to Irene (Thomason) Hinote for getting me interested in this "genealogy thing" and for her research into my wife's family (Hinote, Shultz, Thomason, and Frazer).

My children's eight great-grandparents are the basis for the information on this website.
