Hi, I am trying to find out more information about my family history. My grandfather was William McKinley Webb, born on July 4, 1900, and he married Ethel Lee (Handy) Webb. They lived in Franklin County. If anyone has any information on this family tree, on either side, and could pass it along to me, I would be happy to "update" the tree from that point. My great-grandmother's name was Sara Handy and her husband was Joseph Handy (I'm not positive of his name, but pretty sure.). Thanks, Rachel Sellman, Maryland

Coopers Post Office existed in Franklin County, I believe 1832-1870. I'm looking for information on Lewis Cooper, the first postmaster and nephew of Eilses Cooper, also brother of John Cooper. Lewis listed his age as 77 in the 1850 census, and I don't know what he was captain of. My direct descendants also lived in the Coopers Post Office district, Iles/Ike Cooper,1776-1868. I believe that Lewis, John and Eiles/Eisles were related to my Iles/Ike, would appreciate any help here. Thanks
