The Cheek Family of Alleghany County, North Carolina


Because of various things going on in my life, I don't have as much time anymore to work on genealogy or update this website.  Don't worry, though, I intend to keep the site up and running for as long as people are interested.

To find what you are looking for on this website, try the search engine or the surname index.  There are also surname-specific site maps for the Andrews, Cheek, Cox, Crouse, and Edwards families.
