I have been working on my Ancestry for over a year and seem to be linked to the Poythress family through the Walls and Covingtons.
Ran across this site because I had looked at a video this morning and noticed a comment made by a Lori Poythress-Gardner. Got me wondering if we could be related, not sure if the site lists descendants?
My Poythress connection ends with Ann Poythress 1721 who presumably married John Wall Sr. I say presumably because there seemed to be a question about her lineage? Lots of questions from a new to genealogy researcher.
Thank you for any help you can give me.

Are you seeking records for your southern ancestors in the immediate
