hi Audrey. The line of Townsends that i have been researching are from Dixon, KY (Webster County). There seems to have been quite a few Townsends in this area. I don't have anything on your specific names yet. But there are a few good geneological websites that Webster County maintains that has a lot of historical family info from that area. I would suggest you check this out first. Theresa

Hi Theresa; Believe there are three different lines of Townsends in Hopkins/Webster Co KY. Have been tracing the Person Co NC Townsends. Could we be working on the same line?

hello! to be honest at this point, I am not sure which Townsend line of the three I am researching.

My great grandfather was John Louis Townsend (1879-1930). He was born in Dixon (Webster County) and died in St. Louis, Mo. That is all I know and due to some family scandals and problems, none of his four sons (who have since died) ever talked in detail about the Townsend family. Am looking into death certificates and social security applications for family info that might lead me to John Louis Townsend's parents.

How successful have you been in locating info on your Townsend line? theresa

Hi! Sorry, Theresa, no John Louis Townsend in my line of Townsends. Have worked back to Virginia through Person Co NC on my line and then everything stops. O. T.

It is my understanding that we are kin to
some Texas Townsends. A few years ago there
was some talk of major oil money that was to
be shared by blood kin line. Lawyers sold us
out I think. I am in Lexington. Feel free to
email me. Jon
