My Family Tree: Freeman, Timmons, Scott, McElvain

photo of some old family photos (not mine)

I’ve been interested in learning more about my family tree since I was pretty young, about 10 if I remember right. I’ve got a lot of things I think I know, but not always very good documentation. Some is hearsay from the family, some I’ve seen in written records that I don’t have a copy of (family Bibles, etc) and other stuff from the Internet. For the most part, I’m going to call it all hearsay unless I have a document, in which case I’ll post a copy here.
