Workman Research

Below you will find my research on this branch of my family.  Over the years, I've collected facts from various family members and other sources.  The items below do not represent all of the information I have, but they do provide evidence as to the accuracy of some of that collected data.

Notes: 

  1. To view images of the following research items, you must have popups enabled. The popup will display a scanned image of the item.
  2. I do not know the original source of anything marked with "from Leola's Research", many of the items appear to be from early editions of the Brookings Register or other small community/township newspapers.
