Cecilia Kennedy is my mother and we both have been trying to research our ancestors, which includes the Hootsell name. Our grandmother, Amanda Hootsell, married George Washington Green, in Concordia Parish, La. and died in 1861. I have a great deal of information regarding her descendants and would be happy to share with you. Although I know it has been quite some time since my mother was researching, please contact me and, hopefully, we can fill missing gaps. Thank you.
