I am doing personal research on the Dominant form of Muscular Dystrophy Called LGMD1A. I am looking for the following families with the surnames.

LINKOUS, SHEPPARD, SHEPHERD, CLOWERS STEPHENSON, JONES, PECK, THOMAS, HUFFMAN ,HIXSON, PREFATER, NESTOR, RICHARDSON, DUNCAN, MCGUIRE,
ALLEN, DENNIS, PENNINGTON, CALDWELL, PRICE, COON, MCCOY,
SMITH, FAIN, BAKER, PEARMAN, NOONKESTER, HAMBLIN, HALL, TAYLOR,
BURTON, ELLIOT, BLANKENBACKER, BLANKINSHIP, STULTZ, OAKS, CROMER, CREAMER, FISHER, EARLY, WOOLWINE, SULLIVAN, PEDDYCORD, NESTER, SAUM,
SHAFFER, HARTWELL, WOODY, CROY, HAZELWOOD, PERDUE, GILBERT, ANDERSON,
MORCIE, HOLMES, STEWART, VISHER, ERB, SONGER, BOWDEN,
PEARCE, EYERS, PRINCE, HENDERSON, GILBERT, DILLON.

To name a few. The main Forfather of these families was originally based in Blacksburg Va at about 1796. His name was Henry Linkous. He came to the United states in 1776 as a Hessian soldier. It is believed he brought this MD with him.
To date there have been at least 10 generations of this MD.
Prior to its diognosis, it was known as "the Affliction" for several generations.
If you suspect you are from these lines or if you know of somone who is please contact me Through my email address above.
