I am trying to put together my family tree and I am currently working on the Threatt Family. The furthest that I have gone back is my Great Great Grandfather's (James Cufford Threatt or Cuff Threatt) Father (Lafaette Threatt) whose name I got from the Death Certificate of Cuff Threatt. The Mother is unkown and this is the same information that is on several other family trees that I have found on Ancestry.com.
Cuff Threatt was born in 1861 and died in 1922. He was married Poney Threatt (not sure of the maiden name) who passed away then to Georgie Annie "Annie" (not sure of her maiden name). Cuff and Poney had 5 or 6 children together, Cuff and Annie had about 8 childrfen together. I see this via the 1900 census and other sources and the census of 1920 and other sources.
I have never did this before so I don't know how far to go please contact me if you have questions and/or more information.
