Fred Tubbs made the initial contact with Rhonda (Branscum) Woodard in Nov 1994. At that time, she shared some of her family information with him, including the fact that one of her James Harrison Branscum's sisters was named Mary and that she married a Harris. I was fortunate enough to encounter Fred Tubbs just as I began my family research. I consider him to be my genealogy mentor, for he impressed upon me the importance of maintaining the highest of standards in compiling one's family history. Because of the respect and admiration I have for Fred's Branscomb research, I have in this instance made an exception to my practice of personally researching each of my direct line ancestors. I am also thankful to Fred for devoting umpteen hours working with me on my Branscomb branch. The results of that collaboration will appear in the internet edition of his book, now under construction at Fred's postal address is 47 McCombe Drive, Delmar, NY 12054-9705.
