Welcome to the “Branches” section of this web site.


I created the “Branches” section as a means of consolidating my family searches while maintaining some degree of separation between the individual surnames.  Each different surname within my personal history has been listed on the Navigation Bar with its own page.


The information provided below represents the name and a brief description of the initial connection point between that particular surname and myself.  Thus providing a basic sketch of why I claim that particular surname as part of my family history.


Gorby:  My Grandmother, Margie Eilene (Gorby) Hostetter/Hughes was born the daughter of Norman Leroy Gorby.


Hostetter:  My Mother Carol Ann (Hostetter) Miller/Starkey was born the daughter of Clyde Richard Hostetter Senior.


Miller:  My biological Fathers name was Merland Martin Miller


Hughes:  My Mothers’ Mother, my Grandmother Margie Eilene (Gorby) Hostetter/Hughes married Ernest Walter Hughes and they had four children.  Those children are my Mothers’ sisters and brothers, therefore they are also my Aunts and Uncles.


Starkey:  My Mother Carol Ann (Hostetter) Miller/Starkey married Robert Wallace Starkey and they had one daughter.  The same grounds for connection exist here as with Hughes, the daughter born to my Mothers’ second marriage is my sister, thus marking the connection to the surname of Starkey.


Located at the bottom of each individual branch page an interactive form has been provided for the purpose of submitting additional information regarding what has aready been posted. 



SPECIAL NOTE:  The web site does not retain any information submitted through the use of the interactive forms contained therein.  All forms automatically clear themselves once the information has been submitted.  It is sent to a non-published email address through the publisher directly to the site coordinator.  All information is then hand written into the Family Directory and is not published in any form through any medium.
