Have been researching my Kendall Line (Travis Kendall and Susannah Horton) family line in all directions for over 30 + years. Still have not found his parents even with Y-DNA testers. Older biographies and stories about the Kendall's, are a starting point, but have to be proven or disproved. It is not the gospel just because it is on printed paper.Have been collecting pictures and stories from the older generations. Searching old newspapers, obituaries. Have actual source for my research. Taking photo's of headstone, old house where family lived, churches they attended, to get a feel of their lives.
i was born and raised in central Indiana, raised around family and distant family. And listened to there stories. Has raised to possibly live of the land if need be. My father was in the National Guards and taught us to shoot like a sharp shooter, he also liked to hunt and trap. Work on cars, lawn mowers, or anything that had a motor. My mother and grandmother taught me how to can garden goods, sew, cook, and bake.
