Just wanted another place for our Starnes Genealogy researchers to gather, discuss and share information about the Starnes Family. As most of you already know, Frederick Starnes (1700~1774) is the American Patriarch of our family. My main goal is to help other researchers complete their lines and family histories.
Currently, my own research has been focused on my 5th Great-Grandfather, Captain John Starnes (1745~1780) and his three children; Frederick (1772~1851); Catherine (1774~????) and John Jr. (1779~1855).
I hope anyone who wants to share their own familiy lines will choose to do so. A lot of information has been discovered since the family book "Of Them That Left a Name Behind", written by H. Gerald Starnes and Herman Starnes, was published back in 1983. So if you decend from any of Frederick Starnes and Mary Goldman Starnes' children, please think about sharing your lines with other members of our family.
So, everyone...please enjoy the site. Post what you like and lets get the discussion going about our ancestors.
