Our Families


This website is a labor of love created by the desire to pass on our family genealogy to future generations.  The three family members that have done the research contained in this website are descendants of William Apperson/Epperson who was born in 1680 aboard a vessel that landed in the Virginia Colony.  We continue to do research on our ancestors and therefore will be adding to the content of this site.  We are eager to hear from others who may share our family tree.

The core of the Epperson family research was received from his cousin Jessie Tommie Epperson Cobb (1909-1985), augmented by the published work of Edna Epperson Brinkman, The Story of David Epperson and His Family of Albemarle County, Virginia (1933). Karen and Laurel are his 4th cousins.
