Basic family site
My name is Herb Cullers (Herbert W. Cullers Jr for tree purposes) and I started this site.
This site was created using MyHeritage.com. If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me.
My primary emphasis is on early, direct lineage Cullers (Koller/Cullers), Fowler, Coker, Gordon, McCraken and Mobley lines. The tree's earliest entry is Peter Gerlach(Carlock) b. 1570 (an intersection with early Cokers).Others include Coker and Koller/Cullers.. most in the early 18th century. Occasionally, something interesting will come along and I'll look at a connecting line, i.e., Fancher.
The site was last updated: February 23, 2017 Enjoy!

James Wick Kenner (1833 - 1896)
Rodham Kenner (1759 - 1814)
You don't need to enter all the URLs. There are links from one to another.
My line branches from yours with Francis Kenner's son, Dr. Howson Kenner. Margaret Eskridge Kenner, being my 7 times grandmother, was a friend to Mary Ball. Mary lived at Sandy Point Plantation from 1721, age 13, to her marriage at Sandy Point in 1731. The groom was Augustine Washington. I've seen references to journal entries of a man who attended the christening of Mary's first born. He describes the man holding the baby as a distinguished local lawyer, George Eskridge. Many feel that the infant was named after Mary's beloved guardian, Col Eskridge. So many believe this that they include Washington in Col. George Eskridge's name. A fact that doesn't appear in any surviving documents. Since George's name appears in over half the legal document in the Northern Neck region on Virginia at the time, you'd think it would show somewhere if true. Others actually place Eskridge as President Washington's middle name, another thing not proven by public records.
After Rebecca passed away, Col. Eskridge married the twice widowed Elizabeth Vaulx. They had one child together, Elizabeth Eskridge Aylett Steptoe. She married two widowers with two daughter apiece. William Aylett's daughter by his first wife Ann Ashton, married into the Washington and Lee families. Col. James Steptoe, MD had daughters by his first wife Hannah Ashton (don't know if the Ashtons were related). These daughters married into the same families. Anne Steptoe Washington was the 4th of 5 wives of Samuel Washington, George Washington's younger brother.
I like to say that my 7 times grandmother's, half-sister's, step-daughter's brother-in-laws' face is on the Dollar Bill. His 8th cousin, 8 times removed is Kate Middleton (AKA The Duchess of Cambridge) When I mention this to my site members in the UK, they say, "So! You're Royal."
I hope this has been both informative and helpful. Thank you for your time.
