About MY SOUTHERN FAMILY HERITAGE
HELLO FAMILY AND GUEST VIEWERS,

I HAVE TO SAY FIRST OFF, THAT THIS SITE IS CONSTANTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION AS 
NEW INFORMATION IS DISCOVERED.  MY BAXLEY LINE IS SO MESSED UP RIGHT NOW 
BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH INFORMATION OUT THERE AND I AM HAVING A DIFFICULT 
TIME TRACKING THE CORRECT INFORMATION.  WHAT YOU SEE NOW IN REGARDS TO THE 
BAXLEY LINE IS BEING WORKED ON.  I HAVE TO MAKE SOME CORRECTIONS.  

THERE ARE SO MANY NAMES I HAVE ADDED TO THIS WEBSITE AND I HAVE NOT NEARLY 
SCRATCHED THE SURFACE.  I HAVE DISCOVERED HOW WE ARE CONNECTED TO SO MANY 
OTHER 
FAMILY NAMES AND IT HAS BEEN AN INTERESTING SEARCH SO FAR.  IT'S ADDICTING.  
I  
FIRST BECAME INTERESTED IN LEARNING ABOUT MY ANCESTORS FROM LONG AGO AFTER 
LEARNING THAT I HAD A RELATIVE WHO FOUGHT IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION.  HIS 
NAME 
WAS CAPTAIN RALPH REGAN.  HE WAS MY 5TH GREAT GRANDFATHER.  AFTER SEARCHING 
HIS 
NAME ON ANCESTRY.COM AND THE GENEALOGY WEBSITE UNDER THE CHURCH OF LATTER DAY 
SAINTS, I LEARNED OF RALPH'S CHILDREN'S NAMES AND THEIR CHILDREN AND THEIR 
CHILDREN AND SO ON AS WELL AS ALL OF THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE HIM.  I WAS HOOKED 
ON LEARNING MORE THEN.  I HAVE COMPILED 7 NOTEBOOKS FULL OF INFORMATION ON ALL 
OF OUR ANCESTORS.  I HAVE TRACED AS FAR BACK AS 1606 (OUR REGAN CONNECTION) TO 
OUR ROOTS IN IRELAND AND TO THE 1400'S IN OTHER LINES.  I HAVE BEEN ABLE 
TO 
FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENEND TO MY GREAT GREAT GRANDFATHER JACOB B. BAXLEY WHO 
NEVER 
RETURNED FROM THE CIVIL WAR THROUGH MY RESEARCH.  WE COME FROM A LONG LINE OF 
SOLDIERS AND WE SHOULD BE VERY PROUD OF THEM (BACON'S REBELLION, AMERICAN 
REVOLUTION, CIVIL WAR, WWI, WWII, KOREA AND IRAQ.  THANKS TO ALL OF THOSE WHO 
SERVED OUR COUNTRY.  I HAVE DISCOVERED SOME SECRETS THAT I WON'T REVEAL TO 
ALL!!!!!  I HAVE MET FAMILY MEMBERS THAT I NEVER KNEW EXISTED.  I REALLY NEED 
HELP IN COMPILING INFORMATION SUCH AS DATES AND INTERESTING FACTS AS WELL AS 
PHOTOS.  WE HAD A SMALL FAMILY REUNION IN MY HOME TOWN OF ROBESON COUNTY, NC 
ON 
SATURDAY JULY 3, 2004.  WE HAVE NOT HAD ONE IN NEARLY 10 YEARS BUT WE HAVE HAD 
ONE EVERY YEAR SINCE.  IT WAS GREAT SEEING FAMILY MEMBERS THAT I HAVE NOT SEEN 
SINCE THEN AND SOME THAT I HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE.  I HATE I DIDN'T HAVE 
ENOUGH TIME TO SPEND WITH ALL BUT WE WILL CATCH UP AGAIN.  WE ARE PLANNING 
ANOTHER ONE FOR NEXT YEAR.  DON'T WORRY, WE WILL GIVE PLENTY OF NOTICE SO THAT 
MORE COULD ATTEND.  I ALSO NEED HELP IN GETTING PHOTOS FOR THE WEBSITE.  IF 
YOU HAVE EMAIL AND COULD EMAIL ME PHOTOS OF YOUR FAMILY I WOULD APPRECIATE IT, 
ESPECIALLY THE OLD PHOTOGRAPHS OF OUR ELDERS.  I WOULD HATE TO SEE SOMETHING 
HAPPEN TO THE PHOTOS AND THIS WAY THERE IS A WAY TO PRESERVE THEIR MEMORY.  
ONE THING I COULD NOT HELP BUT NOTICE THIS WEEKEND WAS THE AGE OF SOME OF MY 
AUNTS AND UNCLES.  IT'S SAD TO THINK ABOUT THEM GROWING OLD AND NEEDING A LOT 
OF MEDICAL ATTENTION BUT I KNOW THAT JUST COMES WITH AGE AND WILL HAPPEN TO US 
ALL.  I HAVE ALWAYS SAID THAT MY GENERATION AND THE GENERATIONS AFTER ME NEED 
TO KNOW ALL OF THE STORIES AND THE SONGS WE SING AROUND THE PIANO.  ONLY A FEW 
IN MY GENERATION THAT I KNOW OF CAN PLAY THE PIANO.  ONLY SOME OF US KNOW ALL 
OF THE SONGS THAT OUR AUNTS AND UNCLES SANG.  STANDING AROUND THE PIANO 
SINGING OLD GOSPEL SONGS IS WHAT I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED AND WILL ALWAYS CHERISH.  
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD SOMETHING TO THE INFORMATION I HAVE ON HERE ALREADY 
PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO CALL OR EMAIL ME.  I LOVE AND MISS YOU ALL AND HOPE 
TO ONE DAY FINISH THE BOOK I HAVE STARTED.  I WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN IT IS 
COMPLETED AND WILL GET IT PRINTED UP IN CASE ANY OF YOU WANT ONE.  IF YOU VIEW 
THE WEBSITE, PLEASE SIGN THE GUESTBOOK WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS.  THIS IS HOW
