I will be in Boone, NC from July 28 through August 3, 2001 vacationing and researching my Triplett roots. I would like the chance to talk with or meet any Tripletts in the area who might have some family lore to share. I am a descendent of William and Elonar Triplett who migrated to wilkes county from Loudoun county VA before the revolution

Hi Kenney...
My name is Lora Hawkins Smith. James Hayden Triplett is my gg-grandfather - married to Eliza J Hendrix.
I descend from their daughter Oma & Kelly Hawkins. I guess we'd be cousins. I grew up on Elk Creek...I've tried to place you..but can't. Did you grow up on Elk Creek also?
I'd be glad to share some of my ancestry with you. I'd like to see your line too.
Which of James Hade Triplett & Elizas children did you descend of? (assuming a son, since you're a Triplett).
Let me know if you're interested in sharing info.
cousin, Lora ;o)

Your GG-Gran Oma Triplett Hawkins was my Gran William Hayden Triplett's sister. William "Will" Hayden "Hade" Triplett married two or three times between approximately 1889 and 1898. His last wife, my grandmother, Clarissa Elmina "Miner" Pipes bore him many children, all born on elk creek. My father, William Thomas "Tom" Triplett, was their youngest and born in 1916, just after Granpa died. Following his death, and the return of my uncle Larkin from WW-1 France, the family moved down to Granite Falls. Most got work in the textile mills, some in the furniture plants, and some as truckers. My dad left the first time in 1935, and several times during the years following. He met and married mom in '37 in Mississippi. They traveled quite a lot, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Indiana, Illinois, D.C., Baltimore(I was born there), North Carolina and Louisiana before settling back in Mississippi in 1959.

I'm also a descendant. I grew up in Kings Creek, outside of Lenoir. I live in Colorado, now, but I make a trip home every year. We're coming in August, this year. Can you tell me when the Triplett reunion will be?

Thanks!

Thank you for replying. I did reply back to you but, my message wouldn't send for whatever reason; then one of my children got sick, therefore I haven't had time to work in my research much lately.
I'm going to send you a run down of what I have thus far...anything you may see thats not right or needs adding to, please let me know.......
