This site was created to allow family members to share in the knowledge of our family history. The Families section contains about 9300 individuals and 3000 families. It gives some insight to the hardships our ancestors endured to create this great country we all enjoy so much, and often take for granted. Many of these people came here when there was no United States of America, and worked and fought hard for whatever they had. Some became very wealthy and prominent citizens, while others tilled the land and struggled to survive. We all owe our very existence to them. Read their stories with awe and respect for what they created, and share the knowledge of this site with other family members.

Take a look and enjoy - it's fascinating!!

Alan Laurence Hill (1903-2005), my father, provided much of the original information and many photos, which he gathered painstakingly from many family members. Additional major contributors are Mrs. Anna Supplee (Hill) Baker, Mr. Robert Clinton Baker, Jr., Mrs. Claudette (Warner) Darling, and Ms. Kathleen Worrell (from her father, Albert Cadwallader Worrell).
