"Yesterday"...and Today


"United We Stand"

An opening note: Thursday November 21, 2002 I was stunned by news of the death of my life long friend Paul Zasadil with whom I had spent most of the day. Not genealogy related but closer to the heart than most will ever know. Click on his name for my eulogy, memory and guest book of my best friend.

"Yesterday" our ancestors laid the foundation to our very existence...and Today

we search for their identity. The following is an effort to sort the vast amount of information from fellow researchers as well as that of my own research. I do not accept this information as a final answer to my ancestry but rather a collage of building blocks.


         Genealogy Reports

"Here, There and Everywhere" around the Virginia counties of Floyd and Montgomery, I am
researching (among others) the names JENNINGS, EPPERLY, WICKHAM, PAYNE, WIMMER,

"The Long and Winding Road" that leads to Kanawha and Fayette County West Virginia is where
I am researching the names HUDNALL, BARR, SCHOOLCRAFT, REED, McCUNE and others.
JENNINGS, EPPERLY, SOWERS, POFF and TRAIL also came to this area of West Virginia
as did numerous other Floyd/Montgomery County Virginia families.
