I started to read this string because I had corresponded with Linda Johns, but found some material of interest in your postings. Is that serendipity?
I'm researching the family of Jacob Hutts and his four sons (Jacob, Jr., Leonard, Michael and William) who lived in Virginia in the mid 1700's. Do you have any information on them?
Also saw the name Harmon in one of your postings. The Hoots family has lived on Harmon Creek in what is now Yadkin County for over 200 years. Any connection?
Enjoyed your comments and those of others above.
