    Great to see the updated site! We just went to KY and met our Caudill cousins for the first time!

    • says:

      Thanks! Hope your trip was fun. Hope to add additional content soon including additional pictures. Send me any information you would like posted.


  2. Barbara Cordell Carithers says:

    I am thrilled to see your website back up! I am from the line of Thomas Aaron Caudill & Mary “Polly” Earnest. My Father is William G Cordell who made some of the other entries in the old Blog. My father gave me all his genealogy papers about a year and a half ago. He like so many of his forefathers had a stroke and his speech and reading are now too affected to research. But I am happily researching & am known as “becorcari” on Ancestry.

    • says:

    Seeking info on Margaret caudill/caudle/? That died in in 1874, she died at childbirth and the child was raised by the father??? And lived to be 85 years old and raised a family of 10 children. The mystery of this is it wasnt common kmowledge and we dont know any thing except her name and that the son lived his entire life in knott county ky. We are hoping that some one has heard of a margaret caudill/ caudle in this time frame we dont know if caudill/caudle is a mar. name or maiden name, but she wasnt mar. to the father.
