Doin' Some Diggin'

So I have done some digging myself. It takes a great deal of time and patience. I started this project in 1977 when Honey Hunt Yates gave me a bunch of papers someone in the Hunt line had put together. I read it and talked to my Grandfather about that branch of my family but didn’t really do too much with it. A few years ago I started it all a new and ended up creating this website.

This is a work in progress and as with anything done by human hands there are bound to be mistakes. If you find you have information, which is different from what I have posted, PLEASE write me and let me know so I can correct any mistakes.

Oh, the person who had put all that stuff together on the Hunt line? I was very surprised to find out from Honey that it was my Mothers handwriting I had been looking at for so long and didn’t even recognize it…funny!

Have fun and sharpen your spade!
