Comments: Great site!! helped me fill in some long standing blanks, and ID people (children) who were born and died between census'. The marriage databases were a God-send. Seem like, at least within my family, everybody is nameing their kids the same, 5-7 Elizabeths within the same generation, and to make matters more complex they are truely marrying their cousins. Thanks for all the time and effort you guys have put into this site and the databases.

Comments: You have the best web site I have ever been on, so much information!! and some information no other site has. I like the way I can surf through the different States that were once VA. I visited the Bourbon Co,KY Courthouse last Month, on the lawn was a History Marker saying Bourbon County was once a part of VA., I knew KY was once part of VA, but when you walk upon a History marker and there it is in plain English, all I could say was WOW!! In my genealogy research, I tend to forget how much the counties and States changed, most of the time when I run upon a relative from VA I think of it as being off some distance from where I am, But in fact they could have been living in the same house all their life, They didn't move, the State changed! Again great site.

Comments: It drives me crazy when I find incorrect data on ancestry.com and I can't go in and change it or even make comments. Whenever I can make a comment I do. I recently found a very distant Whitt relative who lives in Texas. We connect up to Archibald Whitt who lived in Tazewell Co., VA in the late 1700's and early 1800's. It was a great feeling to figure that one out! If anyone has any new information on Christina Robinett I would love to hear it. She was born in Logan Co. in 1822 but I don't know when she died. I think she was in Tazewell Co. then, living with her son Silas. Please share with me anything you may know about "Tena." And if you have any pictures of Silas Henry Robinett 1864-1927 he was my grandfather and I have none.

I remember a book, The Descendants of John Counts of Glade Hollow that I will be borrowing from my Dad. My Dad, Lyman Counts was a Nationwide Agent in Lebanon for nearly 30 years, and he owned the old Nash Farm down Glade Hollow on Big Cedar Creek up until auction last summer.

My father was one of 5 or 6 children. George Cowan died before I was born but I knew Emaline when I was a boy. I went to her funeral. They are both buried in a small family cemetery near the old homeplace. Last time I was there, it was pretty run down and someone burned the old homeplace.
