Welcome to 'REBS, YANKS AND ITALIANS'. My name is Eric Wheeler and I have been researching my
family since 1993. This page is mainly concerned with the Wheeler, Moore, Coleman, Fort, and Jones Families of Desoto County, MS and the Kerns, Parsons, and Rhodes Families of Jackson Co, WV. Other families are included in my surname index below. I am updating this page frequently so come back
often. Be sure
to check out the Pension records of David and Gamaliel Kerns. Also take
a look at the Photos.
If you are new to this page, a great place to start is my Surname Index. You can see every document, photo, family tree entry, etc for every person with your surname. It's a good place to see if there is anything on this page about your family.
Surname Index You might wonder what's with the name Rebs, Yanks and Italians. Well you see I come from a mixed family with 3 Rebel soldiers as ancestors, 4 Yanks and a grandfather from Italy. Guess that makes me a typical American. Be sure to sign my guestbook at the bottom of the page. Thanks!
