-This is my FINAL on the genealogy and historical research I have done over the past three years. -My membership in Ancestry.com will expire in several weeks and have not obtained any useful information in months or from contacts I havemade through them.-In future others may want to take up the cause as more information becomes available. -Others may want to add their own lines as I have done in the Johnson-Bledsoe Lineage to fill out their “family tree”. -If you are unable to down load let me know and I will send you a disc.
