A Cabin in the Woods
home of the
in West Virginia
Welcome to the Cabins in the Woods web page. This is the home of genealogy work of Roger Christophel. The cabin (a modern frame house really) is situated in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. It's the home of Roger and Debra (Bicknell) Christophel.
This page is dedicated to the many ancestors that came before us. Even though we grew up in South Western Ohio, it appears that our ancestors crossed paths in Kentucky and possibly in Viginia. These paths crossed anywhere from 50 to 200 years ago. Simply proving that "It's a small world after all."
Please note as you pass through the individual surname pages that the write ups concentrate on the ancestors in either Debbie's or my direct line. If you are connected to a branch, please feel free to contact me for any help that I may be able to offer.
As a starting point the surnames that we are most concerned with here are BICKNELL, CHRISTOPHEL, HIPP, and QUINLAN. The links to the left will take you to pages for surnames that I have data about. These pages have links to other places.
