Family Names. While we are on names, here are some of our family names. As I think of more, I will post them. Do we have some family names common with any of yours?

Stokes (English)


Johnson (Scots-Irish)

Hemperley (from "Hemple", a German family. It got "Southernized" into "Hemperley", because it sounded like "Hemplee")

Travis (yes, that Travis, my Texas friends) (Norman -English)

Jordan (pronounced "Jurdin")



Macon (Huguenot)

Michaux (Huguenot)
