Try this add. instead the other had a miss type.:
Also family descendent files requires:
Microsoft word or word pad to open.
We are trying to convert from rft. files to
text files. So everyone can view them.
Should have that problem fixed by this week end.
But everything else on the page is able to be accessed by all.
Hope this helps
Sherrie & Alvin Smith
Please come see our new home page.
We have 12 descendent files on there now with over 30 surnames in
A lot of links to help in family research,
pictures, and much much more that we add to daily!

I don't know for sure, but you may wish to check into the descendants of
William Henry Harrison HUMPHREYS. My accounting of that family is far from
complete. It may be that George is a son or grandson of him and his wife,
Frances Ann LEE.
Looking for descendants of George Washington Humphrey, also would like to
get an obit for him and for Elmer. I found this on the SS CD.
