Welcome to the genealogy home page of

                                  Shawn Matlock                                                         

There are four sections to this page listed below. They cover four of the main lines on my family that I have information on. They are: the Balls, the Maples, the Matlocks and the Rogers. I hope you enjoy this site and you gather some useful information as well. I still have a lot of work to do. I have more photo's to add as well. I am always looking for more information and old family photos on these family lines, contact me and I will put them up when I have time.


All of my family photographs have been moved here:

Most of the information on the Maples family in my tree is based on the four volume set "MAPLES FAMILY" by Marveline Holloway Burns. Mrs. Burns (now Mrs. Blankenship as of 7 Nov 2000) can be emailed at (

Her mailing address is: 3702 Colorado Ct. SW       Decatur, Alabama 35603 Ph# 256 350 3784. I am not sure of this info anymore.
