About Our Roots in Calhoun Falls, SC
Over the last 15 years I've been researching primary and collateral lines, as well as 
neighbors from the vicinity of Calhoun Falls, Abbeville Co, SC.  So, this site has 
about 5,000 names!  However, not all the people listed are relatives.  By far the 
largest trees include my maternal lines, Footes and Lees (Collateral:  Rollinson, 
Brooks, Belcher, Davis, Calhoun, McDuffie, etc)  and paternal lines:  Walker and 
Simpkins (Collateral:  Bryant, Cade, Irvin, Glover, Postell, Raindrop, Webber, etc).

I have gratefully included the work of two researchers who have joined the ancestors. Eugene 
Johnson, the first cousin once removed of my first cousin twice removed, has 
significant research on the Johnson Family from Abbeville Co, SC.  Nellie Brooks, my 
fourth cousin, is someone I never had a chance to meet, but fortunately their Brooks 
line had preserved the knowledge of their Foote ancestress, and "meeting" on the 
internet brought our lines back together.

I would love to expand on the lines of anyone else that you find listed here.  
Hopefully with the effort and input of many researchers we will find errors and 
missing pieces so that we will create a bridge to the past.  Please do not just copy and paste the 
relationships as gospel.  In some cases I'm showing working hypotheses that need proof!  When in 
doubt, email me :-)  

I consider myself a family historian, not necessarily a genealogist.  In other words, DNA is only 
one aspect of how our ancestors created and supported our family.  You did not have to share blood 
to be claimed as kin.  Sankofa - To go back and fetch that which was lost!
The Foote & Allied Family Lines will be cruising in August 2014 for our next reunion!
