Hi Jim...No, yall didn't scare me off the other day, I had something to do...I think you were on a BRB when I left. As for my Barksdale relatives, William Barksdale m Elizabeth F Palmer in Abbeville, SC were my GGGG-grandparents. I am still kind of new to this and I haven't found his father although I am sure he has a bro Benjamin. I am sure there is a connection somewhere to the Gen Wm Barksdale but it isn't in my direct line that I am aware of. Thanks for the comment...Kathy
My surname is Cart. It looks like you read it as Carl. The Cart ancestors came to America in 1752 and landed in Philadelphia. The German surname was Karg which became Cart early on and has been progressing to Carte. They were around Philadelphia until the 1790's when most migrated to VA (Monroe Co.) which later became WV in the Civil War.
Hi Jim.....my ancestors changed the spelling from Cassel to Castle, but during the Cassel phase, I believe they were mostly from Bucks County. I've never come across the Wolford last name in any of my searches. I sure wish we had info to share. Sorry. It was nice to meet you...................Judy
I afraid I don't share any surnames with you. My research is into the GURD family whose lineage I can trace with certainty back to the early 16th century in Wiltshire, (concentrated in and around the little villages of Semley and Donhead St Mary. I have various records of the family in the same small area back as far as the 13th century, but of course there are no Parish Registers etc, to make firm links between people that early (a family tree based on assumption is worthless). In the last two centuries a few family members emigrated to Australia, Canada and the USA, but in the main, the GURD family is still centred in the South West of England.
I look forward to sharing information and ideas with other researchers

My Avery's are from Ulster Co., NY. This line has been interesting to study. I worked on them for a long time, made no progress until one of my Avery cousins told me the name was originally Every, then things came together. Our immigrant was Edward Evre who came from Cornwall England to Long Island, NY in the 1600's. Our line changed the name from Every to Avery when they came to MI. Since, I have found many Avery and Every cousins surfing the www.
