Guide & Links
To the genealogy pages of this website.
See other link tables for other types of pages.
Within the pages linked below, are lists of descendants and
their genealogy info. And, from some of those descendant
lists, there are links to later descendants.

Many of the pages have wonderful old photographs.
Enjoy looking around. Have fun figuring out
which branch of a family tree you fell out of!

Remember, there were any number of Cobb brothers or nieces
who married Sasser sisters or uncles, thus,
some of us are "double cousins!"

And then there's the Attaway "connection,"
where four Attaway siblings married four Sasser siblings!

Plus there's the fact that through the 1800s and early 1900s,
it was very common for cousins to marry cousins.
People seldom went farther than 25 miles from home,
so cousins were about the only folks they knew!

Having fun yet? You will!
