The data used in this booklet (“RETRACING THE TRAILS OF RITT MYERS 
AND SOME OF HIS RELATIVES”) has been accumulated by James (Jimmie) 
V. DeFord, Jr., Marjorie Creed Taylor, and Era Jane DeFord. The data 
was then put into the computer program "Personal Ancestral File 
Release 3.0", printed from this file to a word processing file, and 
manipulated to the final product. See \PAF3\DATA\AAANEW.PAF & 
\A2000\XXXX.DOC.

The book is divided into two sections:
1. Ancestry Charts for William Everitt (Ritt) Myers, IV. Page 
5
2. Descendancy Charts for family groups.
Myers, Kost, Newcomer, Williams ------------ Page 
13
DeFord, Jones, Bobo, Floyd ----------------- Page 
69
Clifton, Coppedge, Isbell, Shackelford ----- Page
Coulter, McReynolds, Armstrong ------------- Page
Taylor, Evans ------------------------------ Page
Armour Moore, Stansell, Kerr --------------- Page

The Descendancy Charts for each group of families will include:

2a.Descendant Charts for some individuals who are ancestors of Ritt or ancestors in an allied family.

The Descendants Charts will reference those individuals, who are parents, to a Family Number.

2b.Family (Numbers) with Individual Notes.
The Family sheet will list the name, birth date and place, marriage date and place, death date and place, and burial place of the parents; if known. The same data will be given for the children, unless a marriage is known. If a marriage is known, the spouses name 
and a Family Number will be given.

2c.Index of all Individuals shown on the Descendancy Charts.

The Index of Individuals will list all individuals, alphabetically, and show the Family Number(s) and page number(s) where that person is a Parent and/or a Child.

In Section 2, Subsection B, each family is assigned a number. The families are numbered in ascending order, beginning with James Myers, and listing all his known descendants. Then George KOST and his known descendants, and then continuing with other ancestors of Ritt.

Hopefully, at some time in the future, Edition 2 will be published. You can contribute to Edition 2 by contributing missing data, adding new individuals and families, and/or making corrections to the data shown.
