It primarily covers the Craddock family which is traced back to John Craddock, father of Isham Craddock. Isham was born in Patrick County, Va. in 1808; there are no birth, death, or place notes given for John. A number of lines have been researched and presented here. Among them are brief references to the following surnames: McCubbins, Williams, Rhodes, and Grogan. The compiler gathered more information about his Curlee, Hartsell, and Blankenbaker (Pickler) lines. There are two descendancy charts for the Blankenbaker (Pickler) family. The Curlee, Craddock, and Blankenbaker (Pickler) family branches are treated in separate series, while Hartsell and Whitley are scattered throughout.
