Hello, Amanda.  I have Childers ancestors, and the names Childers and Childress are often used interchangeably and/or confused.  When I click on your name, I do not find a WikiTree profile. If you attach yourself to your ancestors, then we can all see whether we are related to you.  

Have you taken a DNA test?  You could also find possible relatives on WikiTree that way (by adding your DNA test information to your WikiTree profile).

To start you off, here is the Childress genealogy page:

May I suggest you click on the 'table view' link, which makes everything much clearer.

Looks to me like if you click on "date order" first, then the table will be presented in date order, which I find most helpful.

Different strokes for different folks.  If you click on table view, then you can sort by date order; if you click on date order, it will present in table view. Up to you.


Oh, I didn't know that!
