These web pages is an attempt to bring a collection of material together as a basis for additional research.
There is many years of research for both my father's family and my mother's family. My father's ancestors were Brockway's and Bobo's. My mother descended for the Drake, Hill and Vann families.
One of the main focuses on this site is the research that has been done on the "Pioneers Families" in the SE corner of Madison County Alabama. This covers the Big Cove, Owens Cross Roads, Popular Ridge and New Hope area. My Drake and Vann families settled in that area in the early 1800's and many of the families still living in this area descended from those families.
I have made contact with many cousins that have been a great help in compiling the data to create this website. I am happy to share what I have collect with other cousins.
