Exploring U.S. History

Finding the Family Book Cover

Finding the Family
The Coleman-Webb-Looney-Phillips Family History Including Associated Kin 2015

By Celia Webb

Thanks for making this our bestseller!

Finding the Family is a journey through time and place; tracing the history of an ordinary and extraordinary family. American history becomes personal as ancestors are found and their lives and the events that shaped them are uncovered. The start seemed simple: who were Mack’s grandparents? What the search revealed was fascinating.

DNA analysis held a surprise. Records found on the internet, in courthouses, books, libraries, military and national archives, family collections and photograph albums gave details not remembered by living relatives. The search turned into a wild, exciting ride with unpredicted answers.

The document trail starts in several Mississippi counties including Sunflower, Leflore, Carroll, Tallahatchie, and Copiah and Pike County in Alabama. Memphis and Hawkins County in Tennessee, and Houston County in Georgia, what was then Augusta County and is now Botetourt County in Virginia all figured in the family history. There is even a line of family which stretches back to the Isle of Mann. With the Great Migration, the trails diverge to Cleveland, Detroit, Kansas City, and California. Now members of the family can be found in just about every state of the Union.

Major Family Lines include: Barnes, Booker, Coleman, Everett, Gilbert, Hunter, Harper, Looney, Mack, Kaigler/Kegler, Sanders, Webb, and Wilson.

Examining slave holding families is also important to understanding the family history and therefore these families have been included: Everett, Greene, Looney, Kaigler, and Sanders.
