Who Is Your Lineage?

“Which of Bartholomew’s children is your lineage?” It’s a frequently asked question at National Stovall Family reunions. I’ve seen instances where attendees wore a name tag listing George, Bartholomew, Hannah, Thomas, John or William to identify their parentage. Why is this important information? The obvious answer; when this critical piece of the genealogy puzzle is unraveled your ancestry is completed to Bartholomew the Immigrant, the original “American Stovall”.

When speaking on heritage or lineage, near everyone who carries the surname Stovall are a blessed lot. We are all armed with the knowledge that a straight line is drawn from our ground zero Grandfather, Bartholomew Stovall, directly to our family doorstep.

Equally important is the revelation that any Stovall descendent in your lineage line assures that you carry the DNA of the amazing young English immigrant who symbolizes the embodiment of America’s success.

For those who need help tracing your genealogy I suggest contacting the Stovall Family Association, (www.stovall.org, or Facebook at Stovall Family Association). One of their stated goals is to bring into contact all those persons who are researching the Stovall line and allied families. This organization is also in possession of the official Stovall Database, the most extensive and accurate collection of Stovall family tree data in existence.
