My family history research begins with my TOWNSEND line which began in Virginia, and migrated primarily to Maryland and Delaware. From there they spread throughout the country. I often have direct and indirect relationships in my database. I attempt to cite sources and references from books, census data, online sources, and other researchers. My other direct family lines are TRUITT, CLARK, WIX, MCKNITT, BROWN, SMITH, GULLETT, GOSLIN, HEIDRICH, STUETZ, SCHULTHEISS.
