Please contact Chug with any corrections or additions. He is very interested in family history and images of ancestors from the 18th and 19th centuries. Do we have a genealogist in the family, budding or otherwise? Does anyone have or is anyone working on a family tree?

Here is an image of a family tree that was put together by a Roberts in Kentucky sometime in the 1960s. It is a good summary of Papa’s side of the family. It has most of JoJo and Papa’s grandchildren up through the late 1950s or early 1960s. The paper copy is approximately 2 x 4 feet.
