The Family Then and Now website seeks to provide historical information about and links between various family members. Each page presents an individual's personal history data with photographs, stories, and the historical, geographical, and cultural context of their life.

The scope of coverage now going back along several family lines for over 1500 years is centered upon the families and ancestors of the editor (Roger Baxter) and his wife (Janice Moore Baxter).

Among many other family names this currently includes members of: Adams, Attebery, Barlow, Baxter, Bippus, Blaylock, Boyd, Brown, Claypool, Dement, Edwards, Fischel, Fishel, Gass, Haden, Harbison, Hocking, Hoeszel, Husser, Jacke, Kick, Lindenmann, Lingle, Lough, Madden, Merrell, Moore, Nading, Norris, Patterson, Pearson, Robertson, Smith, Urban, Voltz, and Westerman familes. As time is available and interested parties desire it, the scope will be gradually expanded.

If you would like to contribute information or photographs for this collection, or offer corrections to the information displayed here, you may contact the editor.

For more information about this website and its plans for future expansion see About Us.

With three sets of double-cousins living less than 10 miles apart (although on both sides of the Arkansas-Missouri state line) who were mostly in their teens and early twenties, at least from all of the surviving group photos, it was hard to keep them apart. This photo taken around 1937 shows a family group of Attebery and Hocking brothers and sisters and cousins and children and their spouses.LEARN MORE
