Surnames That Are Related To My Family

When I started this adventure in genealogy it was very easy for awhile.  The reason I'm saying this is that the surname Hugonin is not very common.  So when I typed the name "Hugonin" in a search engine I found ancestors that were mostly related to me.  As I began to branch out to my maternal side of the family, the surnames of my ancestors became more and more common.  To further complicate matters one of my dad's brothers changed his name from Hugonin to Carson.  I'm always interested in locating cousins with the following surnames: Hugonin - Farnell - Myers - Williamson - Mitchell - Wooten (Wootan) - Chamness - Pepper.

  1. Any chance your Williamsons are in Arkansas (1830-present) or Tennessee (1700's)?

  2. I have some Wooten folk. In Texas, I think, I'll have to dig it out and look. Welcome to Blogging Larry. Hope to meet you face to face at one of the conferences someday.

      My great grandma was Mary Louise Wooten b. 7 Mar 1866 in Conroe, Montgomery, Texas, married to Joseph Edward Mitchell b. 02 Jun 1863 in Alabama.

      Mary Louise dad was William Harrison Wooten b. 16 Jan 1839 in Shelby County Texas.

      Do we have a match?
