I am not Carolyn but this was sent to me. Interestingly enough, I am a
descendant of Richard Hamilton Childress who m. Becca White in Knox Co. TN.
Their son, James K. Childress, his daughter, Jennette Childress, her
daughter Leota Fern Cofer, my father , Robert Louis Vance, and me Alice
My sister Abby Poehler is much for authority on our paternal lines, but I
too have all the info. We can document everything including death, etc.
for Richard and Becca. We do not know for sure who his father was. Is the
next line up John Childress and Polly Kirby???
Thanks for sending me this.
PS-- I am forwarding a copy to my sister, Abby.
