About

MY MOTHER, CATHERINE SHUMAKER BRINSON, spent decades on genealogy research for both the Brinson and the Shumaker sides of my family. She intended to write a book, but her many different interests meant that there was always something shiny and new to distract her from that goal. As if that weren’t enough, there was always more research to be done and new information to be found.

Since she passed away, I’ve been going through her house, and have found an enormous amount of genealogical information for my Brinson, Terrell, Shumaker, and May families.

I PLAN TO ORGANIZE AND COMPLETE THE RESEARCH that my mother has already done, and to write the genealogy books that she wanted to write. There will always be new information, and more research to be done. So when/if I find more information, I’ll make another book. They will be available to everyone who claims a connection to the Brinson, Terrell, Shumaker, and May families.

Just so you know in advance, the amount of information I’ve gotten from my mother’s house will probably end up being made into several books… and it will definitely take a while.
