I have been an avid Family Genealogist for 35 years! I am more about the documentation and proof than I am the "numbers". As I have researched my own family I have researched lots of collateral and community lines so I have a pretty good database for McNairy, Chester and Hardeman Counties in Tennessee. Additionally, I have done a good bit of work in Walker, Fayette, Lawrence, Tuscaloosa counties in Alabama and Shenandoah, Augusta, Orange, Rockingham and Old Dunmore counties in Virginia.

I have several branches of family from Onslow County and Jones counties in North Carolina as well.

As my family and I participate in a DNA project, I realize I have ancestors who have lived in almost every county in Tennessee, North Carolina, Arkansas, Mississippi, and South Carolina and a good bit of Virginia and Kentucky.

I still have many "missing in action" ancestors and this is primarily because they were very poor and lived in counties with major record losses. The second reason they are missing is lack of time and resources to go to the State Archives and the county archives and courthouses in search of their history.

I am thankful I started my genealogy adventure with two grandparents living and various great aunts, uncles, as well as older cousins in the family willing to share Bible records, family history and stories. I learned to go to the courthouse to search for the records and that is still my preferred way to research, but very grateful for the many online databases that allow me to research 24/7 from the comfort of my home.

My favorite records are deeds and chancery court records in addition to the usual marriage, birth and death and obituary records.

Hello Margaret,

The best source for Abraham as the father of Philip is the Abraham's will which is abstracted below. I can't find my copy of the Harpine genealogy at the moment and I don't think that is well sourced. But it does seem convincing on the Oley Pa. origin for Philip.

Best regards,

Ron
