How I found this page Searching for Bio father (Murrel?) bio mom is Pegi Williams
Your sight is very helpful, but I can tell the Murrell line is going to be difficult if you haven't even been able to trace it very far. I have done the ancestry DNA and that has helped greatly but it is still difficult to piece together.

I can't wait to take a look at this.
My grandfathers last name is Holtz so I'm
trying to research some of my family's history.
The only problem is that i'm adopted and don't
get to speak with my biological grandparents very often.
I hope to find something, but if nothing else I will get
to research someone from the Holtz family!

My Interests Researching my family tree
The Holtz branch of my family goes back to a couple named Fredick and Lizbeth Holtz. Don't know when they came to America or from where but they had a son named Fredrick Holtz who married a gal named Mary Gieger. Young Fredrick was born in 1835 so I am guessing the parents were born around 1800 or so. I am told my family came from Austria but not for sure. My research is still a work in progress.

My Interests Voss, Letson, Thompson, Kane
I am just beginning to search and don't have much information. A phone call to my mom and dad usually clears things up. My parents are Donald Gerald Voss and Ann Marie Kane (Michigan). Dad's parents were John Doyle Voss and Rita Thompson (Michigan). The parents of Grandpa John Voss were John Henry Voss and Tina Letson (Michigan). If I have my information correct, my great grandfather John Henry Voss may have come from a family of 13... however 8 died of dyptheria. I would love to hear from anyone who thinks we might be related.

My Interests Taylor Family History
I am tracing my family history from Thomas Taylor 1776 to approximately 1980, and less extended family to the present. His 7th child, Isaac Taylor is the one I am directly decended from. His granddaughter Emily C Taylor (b. 1850) married Sylvester Amos Craig. They produced 6 children. The second child was Rilla Craig. I was immediately struck by the similarity of Marilla and Rilla Craig and believe them to be the same person. Marilla married Ed Hines in my family history as in yours.
Their third child was Kenneth Sylvester Hines born in 1910 the same as your Kenneth Sylvester Hines. My history shows Kenneth with six offspring but the wife is not named. Your history shows he married Violet Ladue. My history shows his brother with a child named Violet. There is so much similarity, I thought you might be interested in having this information. I have no website, but I do have a fairly complete history of the Taylor family. I would be glad to communicate this information in more detail if you decide it is of interest to you. I do have his grandchildren listed to 1965. My information goes no further. Sincerely Julia Rife
