Me with my granddaughter, Sophia
My name is Pamela Brown Reid. I first began working on family history back in the mid-1990s when my mother brought out a VERY old family Bible that had been given to her by her great-Aunt, Myrtle Foster Reid. The Bible listed birth dates for the family of William Foster, his wife Sarah, and their children. We knew we were descended from one of those children, but did not know which one. So began my family history research passion. It turned out that were descended through two of the children, Moses FOSTER and his sister Delilah. Moses married Mary HURT and they gave birth to my g-g-grandfather, Gabriel Foster. Delilah married Burrell WINGO and was grandmother to Susan WINGO, who married Gabriel FOSTER.
On my maternal side, I research ATKINS, EUBANKS, DILLARD, FOSTER, GARNER, HINES, KIMBROUGH, LEISTER, MORELAND, PIGLER, THORN(E), TURNER and WINGO. My paternal research is much harder. Currently, I am working on BROWN, CHESNEY, HINDMAN, JONES, KNIGHTON, and SHERBERT.
I am also working on my husband’s side now and the surnames I am currently working on in his line are ALBERDING, HINES KIRBY and REID. That will broaden as I really get into the real work.
