Welcome to Our Family Genealogy!

This site is dedicated to our mothers, fathers, their mothers, their fathers and on back into time.

It is maintained for our children for them to learn and understand the riches they have inherited and pass this on to their children

A special thanks to our late cousin Shirley Widener Crump whose extensive research made this site possible. We would also like to thank Andrew Thomas for his work on the Thomas-Rouse family, and our cousins Bridget Blaine, Sean McConnell, Margaret Young and Andrea Young for their work on our McConnell family.

This site is a work in progress and we urge you to revisit often as new information is researched, verified and added.
