My Friend is Also A Koonce Descendant

Last week, as a way to help a non-profit in which my sister is involved, I offered to do genealogy reports for two people if they donated $50 or more.  A deal I know! We created this wonderful ad to showcase the offer:

It then turned out that the 1st winner of one of my genealogy reports knows a good friend of mine. So, I’m talking to this friend of mine about it and he says “I should get you to do my family tree!!” Of course, I’m all over it.

Well, as I worked on his tree this weekend I discovered that he is also a Koonce descendant! It turns out he is the 5th great-grandson of a man named Killis Koonce. More details on my Koonce Surname Project blog. I just thought that was too cool.

    You meant more of black Koonces? I came across a good book with some about the Koonce in Jones County, North Carolina.

    Hi David – yes, black Koonces. I am going to send you an email to inquire about the book.
