Sothoron and Related Families - a Genealogical Pursuit


Unless otherwise indicated, the author has visited each of the following cemeteries.  In addition to researching available records I have explored many of them on foot.  Links are provided to more complete burial records and/or grouped grave markers where that information has been collected and the groupings are helpful in reconstructing families.
