Our Etherton Family Genealogy Home Page

Est. October 31, 1995


 This is our Etherton Family Genealogy. My dad got me started into genealogy when I was a kid and I have been at it ever since (more or less). The tools have changed quite a bit from when I used to visit the National Archives in downtown D.C. and writing actual letters to relatives. In 1995, I started this website with the hope of sharing what I have learned with anyone with an internet connection. I have enjoyed hearing from relatives who have found this effort interesting and informative.

 I owe a great debt of graditude to all those who contributed so much to the gathering of the family history. I acknowledge these sources at the bottom of each page in the "Sources/Contributors" section. Without all the time and effort of these, and their gracious sharing of information, what I have collected here would be far less complete.

 While great effort has been made to ensure accuracy, there are unintentional errors in this data. Occasionally I will see one and correct it. If you see any, please let me know. Also note that sources are occasionally incorrect, or even in conflict. This represents my best guess at the names, relationships, dates and places. Your own research may lead you to different conclusions. Enjoy!

 Here is something that I found interesting... a chart of the distribution of the Etherton surname by state in 1990. The states with the highest concentration are Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois and Nebraska, which is consistent with my own research.

 For the 4760 people that are in the database that I know both birth and death dates, the average age at death is: 64.76 years. Oldest male lived to: 113.1. Oldest female lived to: 106.6. (More Stats...)
