Durbin-Jacquet-Smithheisler Family Index

Charles Terrell Durbin, or Terry Durbin, was my biological father. I was adopted by Russell Oran Elledge, Sr. and honor him by researching his family, but I’ve also begun investigating my “blood” line through Terry’s parents Charles and Viola Durbin. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Jim Jacquet for his terrific website on the Jacquet family Jacquet Genealogy and Betty Jewell Durbin Carson’s Book “The Durbin and Logsdon Genealogy”, although the latter had quite few errors in the most recent generations, it was an essential reference in getting off the ground and for earlier Durbin-Logsdon connections. It is on CD-Rom from Heritage Books #1698 ISBN 0-7884-1698-7. Heritage is a good resource for acquiring genealogical titles that may be out of print or too expensive in print – they have most on CD.
