The "REDBOOK" was published in the summer of 1979. Since then, the book has not been updated, even though many milestone dates and events have gone by.
In order to make the book available on the Internet to those who want to find genealogical connections and to learn more about our family, we have decided to reproduce the whole book here. (The complete book is not up yet, but I am working on it. Hopefully it will be on line before long.)
The on-line version also includes corrections and updated information.
Updating the book Information
We need the help of all visitors who are related to the Chastains, Masseys, Harrels, Folsoms and others in this book to collect current information and add to the site.
Updated information and corrections are listed on each page in a blue square.
Please follow the directions at the bottom of the page to correct or submit new information.
Note: In updated information, we can include causes of death, and any significant medical/health issues that may be genetic in origin, and other milestone events that you think might be significant or interesting to people researching their family trees.
