Thank you for the interesting note, Samantha. I believe your father is my second cousin. That your great grandfather James H. Cogdill and my grandfather Arthur, were brothers.

It isn't often that I get someone of your age inquiring about family history and it is quite delightful. I have much information to share, if you are interested. This information will take your ancestors back to England to the 1700's, however more immediately, your forefathers fought in the American Revolutionary War, the American Civil War and all/most major wars since. It is quite the American history journey.

On a separate note, I laughed when I received your email because I have two nieces named Brittany and Samantha from my younger brother. I think it's cute that they have identical namesakes that are cousins. Ironically, I have a nephew by my older brother who's name is Shawn (not Sean).

I am showing your family is from Tawippity, Missouri (Harold). You may know that there are about 100 of your cousins in Southern Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas and Kentucky. Over time, I'll identify them for you.

To contact me directly, you can send emails to bill@wscogdill.com which is my personal website.

In closing, I'd like to say thanks for reaching out.
It is good to meet you. I am sure you will get many stories to tell your father and family about.

Best regards,
Bill Cogdill
