    1. [FLMADISO] new list home is FL-MADISON
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. A new home for the Madison county mailing list has been set up. In a few minutes, I'll send out personal invitations to the subscribers of this list who wish to join the new group will be able to do so. I can not add members directly. It should be a link you can click that will let you 'accept' the invitation to join the new group. You may need to check your spam folder as I can't say when such will be delivered. If you don't find an invitation in your email you may also go to this site - https://groups.io/g/FL-MADISON and select Join Group. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1.

    1. [FLMADISO] Status of the Madison county mailing list - 2020
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. As of now, the Madison county mailing list has 61 subscribers. In light of this list closing on March 2nd, with the full knowledge of the list owner - Susan Penn Groover, I have set up a new home for this list. I've recently set up similar homes for other Florida Rootsweb lists that will be going defunct next month. In my next email, in a few minutes, I'll send you further information regarding this and how to join the new home for this list. Tim Stowell Chattanooga

    1. [FLMADISO] Leave a Farewell Message
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Leave a Farewell Message*_/ This post was by Judith to MODAVIES: suggestion: People may want to post a "farewell" message on the mailing list before it goes to archive, and in this message include an email you plan to keep for the foreseeable future. A separate email could be set up expressly for this purpose if it is more convenient/secure. (You'll want web-based, not provider-based.) That way, if someone peruses the archive & finds a possible connection, they would have a way to get in touch with you privately. I have been on a couple of lists that went archival at some point, and I really wish I had done that, as our old email was provider-based and - once that provider went defunct, people looking through the defunct mailing list had no way to contact me (nor I them) It's easier to track people down these days, but I'd still suggest this. I think this to be an excellent idea, wish I thought it. I would like to expand to suggest that a post to include Your name, best address to reach you (one that might be dedicated to your genealogy research), a list surname(s) of interest, a list to places of interest (country, region, state, county), subject of interest, snail mail address (at your own risk), telephone number (again at your own risk), web address if you have a website, where you “moved.” Please keep in mind these to be suggestions and you should only provide what you would be comfortable for “ibots” to find. Might not want to wait to last minute. This would give system to process information and have it posted. With this in mind, please do not be concerned when you see my post to the nearly 300 (took inventory; final count was 298 – just sharing) mailing lists I admin. I will be leaving my time capsule to the list(s) in the coming days. But I will be here til Roots Web turn off the lights and lock the door. Let me take a few lines to acknowledge all the “thank-you” I have received. I started with a few surnames and expanded to counties more recently. But you are all “welcomed.” I try serve with the volunteer spirit and a happy heart. Please overlook my frustration that may boil to the top in the coming days. Susan

    1. [FLMADISO] Ramblings from the Backseat
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Ramblings from the Backseat*_/ Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. I have already announced that as of March 2^nd , when Roots Web ceases to function as a mailing list that I will be hanging up my administrator's hat. These are my observations and suggestions going forward. First and foremost, someone needs to step-up to be new administrator, chairman, leader, whatever title you like. Next a decision should be made whether to remain a mailing list or a bulletin board. Of course, what is to say both could be established. I personally have not read, but Dick Eastman has endorsed Group.io as a venue for mailing list. From what little time I have had, I would lean toward Group.io to maintain mailing list format. I have no experience with bulletin boards therefore I have no input. I am hearing Facebook, but I have issues with privacy and whether someone would make the site secure enough. I am sure there are other venues for bulletin board format. Can not stop someone setting up FB account, just do not bother to invite me. Also, Ancestry has an established bulletin board area, it is functioning. Due to the activity on most state lists, my next suggestion would be that county mailing lists consolidate to form one state list. When activity is established divide into regions. Too much activity then establish a county list (start at the top and drill down). Under the blanket of a state list posting could use subject line to keep the identity of the county ie; SUBJECT: [AL-SUMTER] Looking for … Surname lists are a horse of a different color. Suggestion here would be to make use of subject line. Kinda like reading a newspaper, the subject line is like a headline of a newspaper. Personally I pay attention to an informative subject line. A worry in the back of my mind is with the “mass exodus” from Roots Web to other venue on whether that venue can handle the new activity or whether “we” will cause that venue to crash and burn. Here's hoping that is a needless concern. Once the list is established … there needs to be centralized place where a directory or a place of registration that searching community would go to find the list. Since I am US based, USGenWeb comes to mind. This maybe more difficult step. USGenWeb sites are individually maintained. Hearing rumblings that this may be solved in the near future. Last concern (for the moment) would be “being nice and playing well with others.” Personally, have not experienced this problem. Frustration, maybe. Especially when Roots Web fell apart and returned “fixed” with continuing problems. For example, I still have to push through a post from someone using AOL. AOL users … this is why your post takes a little longer to be seen. Sorry, I do my best with the tools I have to work with. Patience is probably going to be the keyword in days to come. Patience with the leaders that will step forward. They are going to be putting a lot on their plates and will need support in establishing a new venue and getting it working, establishing their rules, etc. Congratulation to those lists that have found a “new home.” From what I see you are in good hands! Will try to make this last posting to those newly adopted lists. (Posting to all lists today.) At this point in time, Family Trees, Message Boards, Web Sites, & Wiki at Roots Web are not effected to my knowledge. Of course, Message Boards are already part of Ancestry. So open conversation. Work on finding a volunteer to lead the list forward. I'm gonna stop rambling for the moment. I'm here till they turn off the lights and lock the door. Susan

    1. [FLMADISO] Genealogy of Roots Web
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Genealogy of Roots Web*_/ Since most of us are genealogists or family historians, I write this to answer the primary questions I am receiving in “genealogy speak.” Mailing lists were scattered about the Internet prior to the conception of Roots Web (ie: AOL, Prodigy, Compuserve, and others) BIRTH: Sometime in 1996, Karen & Brian Leverich, conceived what it is now known as Roots Web. Roots Web grew to host uncountable mailing list of many subjects, surnames, places, etc. These mailing lists were free to its users/subscribers. MARRIAGE: June 2000. Roots Web was married (purchased by) Ancestry, Inc. with prenuptial agreement that mailing list services would remain free. I believe to be sometime in 2015, our beloved Roots Web began to suffer health issues. My speculation is outgrew its existence and its host was unable to keep up without a major and costly overhaul. After a year plus, Roots Web reopened its doors, but a lot of her faithful subscribers had lost interest or found other vehicles to convey their passages of information. During this time, other updates on the Internet have occurred. These changes have caused some subscribers unable to participate. Not qualified to expand on this other than to say that some folks have lost connection with Roots Web, DEATH: 2 March 2020. Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. BURIAL: Archives will be available to peruse. No further information as to where, how long, or whether a price tag will be added. Hope this helps. Susan Penn Groover

    1. [FLMADISO] Update
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. Hi everyone! This has been heavy on my heart since Ancestry / Roots Web announcement. I have been admin / moderator for various mailing lists for 25+ years (some lists that predate Roots Web). The options for change do not fit my personal criteria. This is, also, not happening at a time I am able to give personal time for this change. Plus, I think Ancestry is not given an adequate “heads up” for this change. (I personally admin 200+ lists) So I have made the decision to become a subscriber as opposed to an administrator. I will remain admin to the mailing lists I currently admin till Roots Web makes the changes they propose on March 2^nd . I am leaving the decision for change to the list members. I am still gathering options. I will post suggestions in the next few days. The major option I am hearing is Facebook. I suppose this could work. But Facebook, in my humble opinion, would be turning a mailing list into a message board. And various mailing list members have stated they would not Facebook. Personally, I am in this bucket. I have personal issues with Facebook. Open discussion on the list. Voice your opinion. Enough for now. Will post more on other options in the future. Susan Penn Groover, List Administrator --- Genealogy: Where you confuse the dead and irritate the living.

GA and d. 15 Jul 1882 in Madison Co. GA. They m. 19 Dec 1843 in Madison Co. GA. I have Catherine & husband Francis on the 1850 census for Madison Co. GA (living next door to Catherine's mother Nancy SIMS); the 1860 Census for Lafayette Co. FL; the 1880 census for Brooks Co GA.   Catherine G. SIMS POWER is my maternal great grandmother. I have information on the POWER family. I am desperately searching for information on the SIMS family. I have found references that show Catherine's father to be a Lewis SIMS who m. Nancy ANDREWS. There is much information on the ANDREWS family. It seems that no one who is researching the POWER or ANDREWS family is researching the SIMS family.   I believe that a sibling of Catherine is William ANDREWS SIMS , Sr. b. 1825 and d. 1880. William m. the youngest sister of Francis POWER named Elizabeth Amanda POWER b. 1828 and d. 1897. William and Elizabeth m. on 20 Apr 1846 in Danielsville, Madison Co.

    1. Re: [FLMADISO] FLMADISO Digest, Vol 6, Issue 9
    2. Amy Nichols
    3. Hi Jeanie, Thanks so much for your email! I appreciate the advice! I did actually talk to the lady in the Clerk of Courts office yesterday and she did tell me that there were a few deeds for Georgia Stebbins. In 1900-1901, her brother deeded her 60 acres and then around the same time someone else deeded her 80 acres. In 1942 (presumably before she died in December) she deeded the 80 acres to her son, although he then died a month later. But she did not have a record of what had happened to the 60 acres. She gave me the legal descriptions of the land and I emailed the Property and Tax Assessors in Madison Co., so hopefully they'll be able to tell me something. I was very curious to read about your grandfather's estate being settled by court order. I'm kind of new to these records, so I'm sorry if I sound naïve, but can I ask why that was? Or in what circumstances that would happen? And by what court would it have been settled? I'm just wondering how I go about looking for court orders that might apply? I wish I lived close to Madison Co. and could just physically go there and look. I live in Virginia and it's so hard doing this stuff from so far away. I really do appreciate the help! Thank you so so much!! Have a wonderful day!

I very much doubt this could be true as she lived in Madison Co. her whole life. So I am wondering where else I can look to find information on how her estate was settled? When my stepmother's mother was young, her father died and her mother was forced to put her children in an orphanage as she could not care for them at the time.

Either way, she did get them out of the orphanage and they lived with her for some time until their mother was able to get her own place and they went to live with her (although they were all in their 20's by that time). Now, of course, the court records on adoptions are inaccessible, but I thought if I could find information on how her estate was filed, it would tell me if the court recognized her grandchildren as her legal heirs and hopefully there would be some information in there regarding the adoption, if one did occur.

    1. [FLMADISO] PATERSON
    2. Yvonne P Edwards
    3. Hector Paterson is my great-great-grandfather. He was born in Scotland and shows up in the 1840 Marlboro, SC census. He arrived from Scotland with his son Angus (and perhaps with a wife whom I presume died in South Carolina). He remarried and had three more children (including my great-grandfather Donald Paterson) in South Carolina before moving to Florida. He had two more children in Gadsden County, FL before the 1850 census. Great-great Uncle Angus was a lawyer who lived and was buried in Madison County. Does anyone have more information about Hector? Where in Scotland he was from? Who were his parents? Who were his wives? When did he come to South Carolina? When and where did he die? Any information at all will be very much appreciated!!!

    3. The first message bounced. I'm resending. Thank you very much for all your work. It is certainly appreciated by me, and my friends. This is really weird that you can't find Edna nor Mercedes Sims deaths's. I can't see their husband and father not burying them near where he lived. Mercedes and her two brothers, Charles and David, were adopted by James and Edna Sims, and they took the Sims name. Brother Charles Fitch Sims is buried in Hickory Grove, Pinetta, Madison Co., FL, David in Hawaii. Did you locate Charles Fitch Sims in Hickory Grove? Thanks again for your trouble. If only Florida had their records on line, we out of towners could do our own work. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Sara Lamb" <s.s.lamb@att.net> To: <flmadiso@rootsweb.com> Sent: Monday, January 31, 2011 5:11 PM Subject: Re: [FLMADISO] Oak Ridge Cemetery I checked the rest of the cemeteries in Madison Co., and Mercedes nor Edna Boyd Jackson Sims were on any of the listings Sorry If I come across them later on I will let you know> I do alot of searching Madison, that is where Lamb Family settled abt 1849,\ Suzy ________________________________ From: RMW <ancestorhunt@sbcglobal.net> To: flmadiso@rootsweb.com Sent: Mon, January 31, 2011 7:05:04 PM Subject: Re: [FLMADISO] Oak Ridge Cemetery Thanks.

Suspect she died. May be buried near her father in Oak Ridge, James Louis Sims. Her mother may be there also, Edna Boyd Jackson Sims born 1901. Thank you for looking. Rosie in California If someone has a cemetery book, would appreciate a look up for both Mercedes and Edna. thanks you. ----- ------------------------------- To unsubscribe from the list, please send an email to FLMADISO-request@rootsweb.com with the word 'unsubscribe' without the quotes in the subject and the body of the message ------------------------------- To unsubscribe from the list, please send an email to FLMADISO-request@rootsweb.com with the word 'unsubscribe' without the quotes in the subject and the body of the message ------------------------------- To unsubscribe from the list, please send an email to FLMADISO-request@rootsweb.com with the word 'unsubscribe' without the quotes in the subject and the body of the message ------------------------------- To unsubscribe from the list, please send an email to FLMADISO-request@rootsweb.com with the word 'unsubscribe' without the quotes in the subject and the body of the message
