I have not spent much time on upgrading the website, I have been busy with updating the database.
An update to the database has been made which includes over 24,000 individuals and 7,000 families. If you have Kentucky Stones in your family, you might want to check out new individuals added. I finally decided to see if I could locate the parents of my ancestor, John B. Stone (1790-1860). I located five distinct Stone families in the area of Kentucky he came from. Then I researched each of them down for three generations or more. And I finally connected. He is the grandson of Thomas Stone (1735-1740-1813) and Sarah Kensey. One more brick wall gone!
Major surnames connected to the Strutton line include: Cantrell, Bailey, Luttrell, Womack, Stone, and Benson. Please feel free to browse your family and I hope you will find data of use to your family history.
Now I would like to announce the publication of my new book, the result of many years of research and over a year and a half in the writing.
