Hello I am from Pantego NC. My father is Leon Respass Jr. and my Grandfather is Leon Respass Sr. My grandmother's Maiden name was Grace Boyd. My great grandfather was Edward Langley Respass. All from North carolina. If anyone knows anything about the time before that it would help me. I am 17 and would love to do some research on it. Thank you.

I think that your grandfather Leon Sr had two brothers...Guy Leamon Respass and Earl Way Respass. If that is correct, then your great grandfather was James Leon (Sill) Respass m. to Minerva Gurkin.
I want to find out if I'm on track before I say anymore. If I am, contact me because you will also be able to fill in some information regarding your dad's family. Hope this helps.
