I can remember when I first became interested in genealogy. My passion started during family trips to Alabama to visit my Grandmother and going to the cemeteries. When I was about 14 years old I plotted my first family tree. I was so excited that I was able to go back to my GG-Grandmother. Today I have over 17,000 people in our family tree and go back 15+ generations on some lines!
My prayer is that you will enjoy the information as I have. That you be as proud as I am to have come from such an incredible group of people. As you will see in this site, we have descended from people of character and integrity. Governors, Senators, Representatives. Colonels and Privates who gave their lives for this country. Preachers who were persecuted and women who were wounded for the cause of freedom. There were even a few skeletons in the ole family closet! Sharon Gallagher Schmidt
