I am researching the Holmes and Wallace families. My maternal grandfather, Odus Nelson Holmes and , grandmother, Olive Ethel Wallace were born in Trinity Springs and married by Levi Denson,blacksmith and elder in Old Trinity Springs Church. Thanks to you I found a picture of Grandma Holmes' father, William Alexander Wallace, 1863 in a group of Civil War volunteers, as well as William and Rachel Fisher Wallace's's obits What a great find for our family history. I will continue to use your site and hope to pass on photos from 1800s. Thanks again and feel free to contact me!

The Parish family lived in Martin County all the way back in the early 1800's, Waggoner chapel was named after relatives also. Other related families include Wade family, Pridemore family and others. I enjoy researching ancestry, my family lived in Willow Valley mainly and Halbert.

I have many relatives in Martin & Orange Co.,most are gone now,over the next ridge.I still consider myself to be a Hoosier Hillbilly, it's in the blood & where my heart is. I sure miss my grandparents,especially this time of year,gramma's singing at the Powell Valley Church & grandpa's mess of squirrels at the Thanksgiving table.
Thanks for the informative site!
