Tate Family of Pulaski County

This listing is far more than a single family group sheet, but in the interest of the many Pulaski County names, I decided to add it in a collective group with references. Names are: Allison, Baker, Boyd, Buster, Fugate, Haddock, Hail, Kelly, Lee, Owen/Owens, Shaddown. Short, Sloan, Smith.

This was taken from the Ricki Wilkins Robert Tate family pages, see below.

If anyone has anything to add to these names, please contact me I will add it, but not make corrections to the basic material.

See Ricki Wilkins line at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~taitandtate/Lin/roberttatesr.htm for information earlier than John and Mary.
