Your Lost Ancestor.

I know there are a lot of reason why you researchers can not find that one ancestor, he or she may have remarried or you may not have a date of their deaths, or maybe they had children but you don’t have all their names. This page is to help you solve some of these mysteries. This page will be in two parts, the first will be a list of Heirs and there will be information on all of them in the form of Bills out of Congress. This information could be the name of a child, wife, and service or land. It may also give the State and county where their came from.

The second part will be about the same as the first part, but what is stated is all the information I will have on them, it may not be a lot but it may be important information to you and help you in your hunt for that lost ancestor. I keep saying ( Lost ) but then they may not be and you are just looking for more information on them, either way this page may be a help to you.

Note. If you would like any information on the names from the first part of this page or have any questions at all you can find my address in my profile.
