History and Families of
Last updated: 14 June 2000
The Chadwell Family data is back with corrections, additions and a whole new layout! I used Gary Welker's excellent ged-to-html software, GedHTree, and hope you'll be as happy with the results as I am. The James Room is now closed for remodelling. It will come back soon in its updated form, with notes and sources included.
Here you will find transcriptions of primary and secondary sources relating to my family and Gilmer County history, genealogies of some of the descendants of
David CHADWELL, Isaac JAMES and James KENNEDY, several
family stories, some old family photographs, and a section of useful
links. Enjoy your visit and come again soon!
