This is from my "Hatfields, Blevins, Burks, and Slavens of Big South Fork
Country" I use the Personal Ancestral File way of giving everyone a
number, then anywhere they appear, they have the same number. These
people intermarried so much that is the easiest way to keep track of
them. I hope this comes through without messing up.
