Norma Knotts Shaffer continues her passion to record the life and times of Calhoun families and history. Her home page introduction says "Save me a banner to place upon the hills of West Augusta and I will rally around me men who will lift my bleeding country from the dust and make her free." - George Washington

"For approximately 200 years, nearly all my ancestors have inhabited the steep hills and narrow valleys of the Appalachian foothills. They were among the hearty pioneers who were already living on the frontier prior to the American Revolution." "They were the men of whom George Washington spoke during the dark hours of our fledgling nation's struggle for freedom. The truth in Washington's statement is borne out by the fact that, indeed, these men did rally to the cause of freedom and several served our country in the Revolution, mostly as scouts and Indian spies."

"It is to these patriots this page is dedicated. Therefore, it is with a tremendous sense of pride and gratitude that I present the genealogy of my family as well as Calhoun County items of general interest."

She will soon be making several additions to the military sections of her home page.
