I had been struggling with the Booker family as there were so many of them it was hard to distinguish them. I had also been somewhat confused as to the connection of Dr. Eggleston, who had contributed much genealogical information over the years (some records at Hampton-Sydney College) and his connection to the Redd family. I think I have solved the problem, as well as some collateral issues that came up. (Boy oh boy, are everybody cousins or what?) Hope this isn’t too confusing . . . .
