I have been slow developing this page because of the heartbreak of divorce and feelings of failure in my family of marriage. But there is a lot to share – so be patient with me as I come to grips with my family and how best to share the stories, photos, etc.
And that feature photo above? Well, that boy on far right is my Grandfather Wood Doggett and thus the 2 adults my Great Grandparents, Margaret Goff & George Washington Doggett, around 1900 when they moved from Choctaw County, Alabama to Bradley County, Arkansas. Learn about them under Family History, the Doggett-Parnell Lines.
I want to make this information-rich, especially the family history, so look for much to be added here continually.
