Hi, I just found this site and I have information that can be added.  How does one go about it?

I did not know that I was related to anyone named Greathouse until I found this information today.

16. Martha "Patsy" GREATHOUSE  Married Younger Witherspoon

Their son, Samuel Witherspoon was the father of my grandfather,
Leslie Witherspoon.  My dad was Oron Witherspoon.  There is no information about my dad or his siblings and many of his cousins.

Please let me know how I can contribute information.

Thank you.
