Welcome to our family tree. All entries are as accurate as possible and verfied and cross referenced at least twice. History is the basis for my family tree, in particular is military history. Nothing thrills me more than connecting a name to a military record and it gives me great honor to do this family record. Though they be gone let them not be forgotten. My research began and is still being found here [Tippah County]
Tapp family research
"Many on-line genealogies for the Tapp family have been recopied so many times that it will be very difficult to correct these errors. Many of the authors with incorrect information, some have out of date contact information and others no longer have access to correct the information that is on-line. By addressing the legends here and errors on my LFT Errors page and hope that people will be able to correct their own family records and in time, the corrected information will become more widely available.
Wallis-Ford Tishomingo County
Five of the children of William and Rachel Ford married into the Wallis family. Two of their daughters were married to the same Wallis husband after the one daughter died, which was the custom in those days. Obviously the Ford and Wallis families were strongly bonded with households neighboring near and next to each other. James M. Ford married Nancy Wallis, Brantley Wallis was married to Mary Ford and Harriet Ford, Tilman Ford married Sarah Wallis and Lucinda Ford married Josiah Wallis. Many of the men and boys fought in the Civil War, with the exception of a few, all survived.

William Mayham Brooks
Born 13 June 1813 in Lincoln County, Kentucky, Billy Brooks married Bethenia Bass and raised 8 of their 9 children to adulthood. They also saw sacrifice of their children that was the horror the War. A son parished in a Northern POW camp, suffering all the while with a gun shot wound. Another returning home only to succumb to the wars effect. Yet, they kept their strong beliefs and touch us yet today, for me it's a simple, rusty, Barlow pocket knife. Worthless in monetary, but priceless for its history. His legacy continues and lives on.
