I can’t wait to read the book. I was married to a Huddleston from Alderbranch and have two sons by him. One of my sons still lives in that area. I did a little genealogical research back when I lived around there, so am familiar with the families in the book.

Hi Diane,
I found your notes while doing some research on the connection between the Crumes and Abe Lincoln. My mother, Margaret Crume Bast, has the following: father Marshall Lee Crume, Grandfather Gideon King Crume, Great Grandfather James Ridgeway Crume, Great Great Grandfather Squire Crume, then Great Great Great Granfather Philip D. Crume. Squire was brother to Ralph Sr, whose son Ralph Jr. married Abe Lincoln’s Aunt Mary Lincoln. Can you help me figure out then how Abraham Lincoln would be related (though distantly!) to my Mom? And how we would be related to you? My email address is listed above, and my telephone is 804-897-9633.
I’m also on Facebook under Linda Bast Mowry. Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you!!!!
