Does anyone know if this book is still available? It was written by a lady from Bertie County, NC, I believe.

I don't know if you received a private reply to this question or not but I'd like to know myself. My Jernigan line is from North Carolina so it may contain information that can help me.

My email address has changed so any personal replies should be sent to:

The originial " Jernigan Reunion " was written by Lillian Worley. After she passed the rights to the book were sold to Kay Stone of Lakeland Florida. I have not been able to reach kay in a while. Hopefully she will see this and get in touch.

Hi Jim(?)
I have an original Jernigan reunion Book, and happy to supply you with any help I can. The rights were sold to Kay Stone after Lillian Worley passed on. What Jernigan's are you looking for? North Carolina? If you give the names and dates you have I will look them up for you. I will also try to locate Kay Stone's e-mail address for you.

Hi Cathy,

Would you mind doing a look up for me? My gggrandmother was Nancy Jernigan who married James Tanner in Muhlenberg Co., KY. There were two other sisters who also married Tanner brothers, 3 in all.

I would love to have more info on the Jernigan lines to add to my genealogy. I greatly appreciate any help you can give me with this.
