When I think of a family narrative, I think of a writing that tells about that family. I think it is more than just a listing of names and dates.
But since I am long-winded when it comes to telling stories about my families, I have been warned to keep these stories short. And so I will. On the left, please find links to the narratives of some of my various family ancestral lines.
Although I have done research on all these families, I may not yet have actually written about them, so some of the links may not be operative at this point. Also, since each one is so short, I have not generally included footnotes or sources. Also, these on-line narratives are primarily listings of people, dates and places unfortunately. I will be happy to provide, at cost, a full narrative complete with footnotes, etc., when they become available. In almost every case, these expanded narratives may actually contain stories about individual family members, funny anecdotes, mysteries and true-or-not lore about the family. Please feel free to contact me via email to request one or more of these narratives.
A note about the log cabin pictured on this page. It is located near Elizabethtown Kentucky. This dwelling was built in two stages: the smaller portion on the left was built about 1789 for the Owen Thomas family. Son Hardin Thomas later took possession of it and added the larger section to the right in 1805 with the help of neighbor Thomas Lincoln. Thomas Lincoln, of course, was the father of Abraham Lincoln. Pioneer Owen Thomas is my maternal 6'th great grandfather.
