David:
My apologies for the length of time in replying. I'm in error about the actual family documents tracing back, they cover family lineage of my great-grandmother, Laura Seay, who was the wife of Andrew Timothy, my father's grandfather. Andrew Timothy was the son of Seaborn Disheroon, the son of Captain William, who settled in NC and then GA. I'm working on summarizing all the info I've collected and posting it on-line. I've built a bit of a family tree using Ancestral Quest, a freeware download from cnet.com. There's a bit of info in it on Waitman Disheroon, who was, according to various NARA soundexes, also the son of Captain William, and info on his children. (most of it from the Searcy county, AR, soundex from 1880). I extrapolated birth years (some, of course, may be off by a year, since there are no exact d.o.b.'s) from the age of the individual at the time of recording. The immediate chain of my branch of the family comes from father to son, more than anything else. My father is certain of whom his paternal grandfather was, and I've been able to trace backwards from there using the public records.
More to follow.
Jack
