    1. Did you ever hear from any of this family? I've done google searches and have had no luck. They stand out in my growing up memories! Wonderful people.

  4. I have a couple of their records - found them in my parents stuff after their deaths. Wonderful family! I sure would love to get in touch with them.

  5. I have been searching for music from the North Family for so long! When I was very young they performed at my church and my grandmother had their record, but over time it was lost. For years now when ever I see a stack of records at a flea market, yard sale, or consignment shop, I search for a record by the North Family, but have never been lucky enough to find one. I would absolutely LOVE to have a copy of their music. If any one knows where I could buy their music, or at least point me in the right direction, please email me at terri429@gmail.com. Thanks!

  6. I think that I have every album (unless they released some recently). I even have their CD where they re-united. The last address that I have for them is: 37 Finnel Drive, Chillicothe, OH 45601. Phone: 614-774-4592.

  8. Anonymous update from comment on Dec.17, 2011,8:58 PM Finally found copy of the record ''Thank God I Am Free'' on Ebay. My long lost first recording as a drummer has come home to roost!

  9. There is one of their songs on you tube "Theres been a lot of changes by the North family" The sister Sharon went to the same church I went to about 25 years ago. She had married and I can't remember her married name.
