I am Michelle
Lynnett Welch Ellis, born in Beaumont, Texas on October 28, 1970
and raised in Monroe, Louisiana. I am the daughter of Travis Lloyd
Welch, Sr. and Virginia Lynn McCoy Welch of Winnsboro, Louisiana
and Knoxville, Tennessee, respectively.
I found myself
feeling gung-ho around this time last year to trace the McCoy roots
back as far as I could and publicly offer my research to those McCoy
family members who might be interested. However, time passed taking
with it my momentum for the project.
