Pontotoc, Pontotoc, Mississippi, 1908
Welcome to our Washington family history web site! Our Washington family genealogy research began some sixty years ago when Mrs. W. W. Washington was told a handed down family story. The story was about our ancestor, George Washington, who was supposed to be born in Virginia, a cousin to President Washington, and had lived down the street from his home. Our family story tells how our ancestor George Washington traveled from Virginia through Salem NC, Columbia SC, Columbus GA, Florida, Alabama, then ending up in the Pontotoc, Mississippi area. Ever since Mrs. Washington heard the story, she made it her lifelong hobby to try and solve our Washington family mystery.
My name is TJ Washington, I began doing online research 16 years ago to assist my cousin's wife Pauline. Together, we have broken down many barriers, solved many family mysteries, but still search for the parents of our most elusive ancestor of all, our "old grandpa" George Washington.
