This website is a culmination of work done over the past 35 years. It was inspired by my love for my parents and grandparents and the times spent listening to their stories. The research began with hours spent combing through microfilm census records and visits to Sullivan's Hollow in Smith County, Mississippi. It was an intermittent endeavor, being more recently spurred on by the abundant material found on the internet, especially Ancestry.com. The information provided is accurate to the best of my abilities and will continue to be checked, edited, and expanded. However, there are certainly "facts" on the internet that have not been always confirmed by those posting and reposting them. Thus, this site, having utilized the internet information, may itself have some errors. My desire is to solicit corrections, as well as additional material from everyone interested. Though this site is primarily devoted to the Howell and McCarley families, there is an abundance of information about these families as well: Sullivan, Drake, and Walling. I hope you enjoy it. Please contact me if you have any information to add, especially media, or if you find any errors. Gary Howell
