There is some additional information about us at Jim and Lou.
We are creating a subpage for each of our surnames, carrying each page back to the earliest known ancestor of that name. We look forward to trading information with anyone who believes our families might be related. We are using Family Tree Maker for Windows Version 7.0, and can create GEDCOMs for the descendants of any individual in our file.
Our family histories center on Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky. Most of our ancestors moved from North Carolina or Virginia to Kentucky or Tennessee between 1800 and 1830.
In Tennessee our research centers on Dickson, Williamson, Rutherford, Smith, Weakley, and Obion Counties. Jim's paternal grandparents grew up in Dickson Co, and his maternal grandmother grew up in Weakley/Obion Co's. Both his James and Hudson ggf's served in the Civil War in the Tennessee infantry.
In Kentucky our research centers on Marshall, Calloway, Graves, Hickman, Fulton, and Henry Counties. Lou's paternal grandparents and her maternal grandmother grew up in Calloway Co. Her gggf Swann served in the Civil War in the Kentucky cavalry.
We both have German heritage. Lou's ancestors include Clapp (Klap), Stiess, Loy, and Faust. Jim's include Lowrance (Lorentz) and Heiliger. Lou has French (Brevard and Jetton) and Swedish (Steelman) ancestry.
