Grannyh, my mother's line has always intrigued me. I have accumulated a lot of information on the Kirksey family. My earliest record is Orange Co. 1755. They lived in Chatham Co., NC and moved on into SC, GA, AL, TN.
An affiliated line, Dickson/Dixon, lived in VA in the 1740s and moved into Caswell/Person/Orange Counties before moving into GA.
The Philmon/Filmon family may have come from PA prior to the Rev. War. After the War, the family settled in Robeson/Duplin/Anson Counties before moving into GA.
My father's father came from Reggio D' Calabria, Italy in 1903 and his mother came from Alberobello (not sure when). They met in NY and were married in 1906.
There you have it.
