    1. [GA-GHOSTTOWNS] Rootsweb mailing lists are back up
    2. Jane Brown
    3. This is just to let you know the RootsWeb mailing lists are functioning again. You may now post any questions you may have been sitting on while they were not. The Archives are being re-populated, but due to their size, it is going to take some time to complete. This post should initiate that process. For detailed information on working with the new list software, see <http://home.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/listsHelp>

    2. Mike Flannigan
    3. This is a test of the Rootsweb lists I am on. It is also some information for the list administrator if they feel the list is not running as expected. And finally it is an attempt to get something posted to the list so Rootsweb does not turn the list off. The list admin should probably go to this page: http://home.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ and try to set up a new mailman login, if not already done. If you do that you will probably get to this page eventually: https://mailinglists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/lists/setupmail Then you might want to sign up for this list: https://mailinglists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/search/Listowners But be warned, you will receive postings from that list almost every day.  May 8 a day at times. Another option that I do not encourage is to turn the list over to me - at least temporarily.  Again, I do not want that done if you are willing to keep the list. Mike Flannigan

    1. [GA-GHOSTTOWNS] Daniell and Graham of Ohoopee, GA (Toombs County)
    2. Hi. My name is Robert (Bob) W. Wilson. I live in Mexico Beach, FL. My Grandfather was Pinkney Young Daniell and My grandmother was Della Ophelia Graham the daughter of Columbus Monroe Graham and Frances (Stewart ?). Columbus is buried in the Ohoppee Cemetery. I do not know where Frances is buried but would like to. the headstone of Columbus was broken several years ago by thoughtless vandals. I intend, in the near future to repair the stone and level it. It appears that Columbus had two wives both named Frances or Francis. I have been told that one of them is buried beside Columbus but I can't determine if this is the one that is my G-Grandmother. I need help with this. My Grandfather was the son of Robert Daniell of Cobb County, GA. He was a rural mail carrier in Toombs County cr. 1905 and would like to find some documentation of this fact. I visited the area several years ago and the most notable remnant is the cemetery and it seems to be maintained. I could not find out if it had been surveyed or if it is listed anywhere/internet. Modern street signs are posted in the area. I contacted the only resident I could find and she had received signs from the State, that were to be erected marking this as a historical location. I would like to hear from anyone that can help me with the history of this town and any information on my family.

    3. Seeking more information on the Swindel Community, a trading center mentioned numerous times in “Sweet Land of Liberty” a history of Liberty County Georgia, by Robert Long Groover. Apparently the Swindel Community’s population was 100 in the late 1800’s and very early 1900’s with a Post Office, General Store, Sawmill (owned by J.C. Swindle), Naval Stores, and Turpentine Distiller. Location given was on a branch of the Canooche River 12 miles northwest of Hinesville, and nearest railroad was Moody on the Glennville Register Road. I believe the location of the old Swindel Community is now on or near the 525,000 acre Fort Stewart Military Reservation that was established about 1940 when about 1500 families or 6,000 people from Liberty, Long, and Bryan Counties were required to relocate. I am very much interested in making contact with anyone aware of the Swindel Community history and what happened to the 100 or so that moved from the community between 1900 and 1940. ================================ From: "Dittmar, Frederick M." <dittmar_ksa@ou.edu> Date: 2008/02/15 Fri AM 09:14:35 EST To: "ga-ghosttowns@rootsweb.com" <ga-ghosttowns@rootsweb.com> Subject: [GA-GHOSTTOWNS] GHOST TOWN TALK Greetings to all Georgia GhostTowners.
