Ruth's Genealogy

“I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.” -Abraham Lincoln

Trying to finish up with them, actually. The Appling line is really a minor branch of the family tree, albeit an interesting one, so I’m working on getting all of the data and soures into my database and getting relevant images uploaded to my Picasa Web Album.

One interesting item that I found tonight is that Edgar Reid Watts, the husband of Martha Ruth Appling (my 1st cousin, three times removed), graduated from Auburn University in 1921. At that time, Auburn was known as Alabama Polytechnical Institute. FYI.
