Thanks for the quick response, Paul. If I may I'm going to send you my Cresawn file by email. Would be glad for you to suggest any corrections or additions. I've just included the excellent information from your article about the Cresawn/Foster Family and the Civil War.
I started today by looking for the father of Carson Tilmon Cresawn because I recently met a relation of his. Seems it may be Levi? But it's a bit murky with their relation to the Snipes.
Andrew, if I'm calculating correctly, was my ggggrandfather, so what does that make me? Probably a lot older than you!
