This page is for all the family stuff that I can't put on Family Tree Maker or in the Rootsweb WorldConnect geddom files.So come in, take your shoes off and wade in the grass. I hope you find something to enjoy.
Here are some of my and my husband's family genealogy reports, gedcoms and trees. If you can add or correct any of this information, I would be glad to hear from you. There is a form at the bottom of this page that you can send me or you can just send an e-mail.

I am trying ,with the help of alot of other kin folk, to connect the Ross, Hall and Wright families of Wilkinson County, Georgia. James A. Ross was born in 1788 in Wilkinson County. He married in 1816 to Hester Ann Hall who was born in 1797. I am not sure where she was born at this time. I have several brick walls as does everyone. The Rosses moved to Irwin County, GA sometime between 1860 and 1870. Then my direct ancestor, John Franklin Ross moved to Pulaski Co., GA, now Bleckley County. There is a picture of the home place on my Familytree Maker page.
My Grandfather, John Thomas Yawn, can't be traced beyond 1912 when he married my grandmother although he had two grown daughters at that time. My Jones great grandfather and my McDonald great grandfather are also total mysteries. I am hoping someone will be able to identify with these family trees and help me out. Here are some various wills, marriages, census records, pictures, etc. about my family.
