Well, Patricia, at the risk of swamping you - and believe me, you will be swamped!! - if it's not too much trouble and when you get a breather, could you check for any FLOYD or WILKINS or KOONCE or BRINSON burials? Sorry to be so vague but surnames are all I have right now for most of these people.

I have acquired a book of cemeteries of Taliaferro, McDuffie, Hancock, Glascock and Warren Counties from 1792-1987. Not sure if it has all of the cemeteries in every county, but it does have quite a few. I will be happy to do some lookups if I am not swamped. Patricia

They married on Jan. 16, 1873 in Wilkinson Co. Wiley’s will was written in 1883 and is located in Wills and Cemeteries of Wilkinson Co. by Maddox, page 159. Does somebody on this list have a copy of this book and if so can you tell me if children are named in the will. Thanks for any help. Emma
Does anyone know the where the cannons are that once sat in front of Jordan High School (JVHS). I remember them being large enough that the cheerleaders could stand on them and one person could sit stretch their legs out while having their picture made. The cannons they have in the naval museum are small and not at all what I remember. I have been told that these are the cannons that was in front of JVHS for many years. But, I remember then being much larger. I can't remember when the cannons were placed at Jordan , why or who gave them to us. I remember my older sisters talking about the cannon , they attended Jordan in the late 1940s and the cannons had been there for a while. I do remember there was a cannon, can't remember if there was one or two , but they sat in the front yard of an old house on Hamilton Road not far from what is now Rose Hill fish restaurant . The restaurant was also across the street on Hamilton Road , and the Peabody Apartments. which is now a vacant lot. Does anyone remember what happen to the one large cannon ? When it came to JVHS to live and why was it given to JVHS and who gave it? This is the same cannon that was painted Columbus High School colors in the mid 1940s. In return Jordan High School painted on the front of the building ,(Columbus High School) JVHS in tar and this wasn't removed until the fire at Columbus High School when boys (?) sat Columbus High School on fire with air plane fuel. Just curious and wanting to know if anyone else remembers the story as to what happen to the Cannons that reaped with memories of everyone who entered and exited Jorday High School ..1905 - Sandra maiden name Waldrop Muscogee County, Georgia

Looking for any help on Lester Crawford family of Pulaski County, Ga. They were living there in 1800's and he died there around 1815. He is listed in court records as a juror in numerous cases. Would Pulaski county have a copy of his will and all?? He and his wife, Cynthia (Cyntha) had the following children: John, William Byrd, Ezekiel, Cyntha, Nancy, and Elizabeth. Jason Brinson and Harvey Vickers are listed as the administrators of his estate. I believe he also owned/ran a saw mill in the area. I live around Tallahassee, Florida and am unable to make it to Pulaski to check out the records. Most of what I have came from "Early Court Records of Pulaski County" book from Florida State Archives. This family later moved to Baker/Mitchell/Thomas/Berrien Counties in Georgia. Ezekiel is my ggggrandfather and I have just broke this "brick wall" after 10 + years.

Hello Everyone: Those of you who are working on your lines back to your 1600s American Ancestors will find the 1600s Ancestors Data Base to be of great help. I have recently posted several hundred new Ancestors to the Data Base bringing the total to over 29,000 entries both men and women. Also listed are several National Societies who have proven many of the Ancestors you will find here. There are also a few new Reference Works that contain many more lines. The entries are coded to indicate to which Society or Reference Work has at least one of their proven lines. Several of the National Societies have over 20 different lines from a single Ancestor. WHEN YOU ENTER THE 1600s ANCESTORS DATA BASE be sure to look at the top of each data page for the link that takes you to the "Data Base Information Page". There you will find the list of codes and how to use them. This is MUST reading if you are to understand the Data Base and how to use it. We are constantly updating the Data Base with Additional Ancestors and references as time permits. More work has been devoted to updating listings of the female Ancestors by going back and including marriage dates. This takes much time and we still have a lot of work to do there. You will find the 1600s Ancestor Data Base at; http://www.firstfamilies.org/db/ For those of you who are AOL members you may have trouble connecting to many pages that may come up with a message such as "Page Does Not Exist" and you should cure that by using your browser feature of Copy and Paste the URL to your browser and pressing your enter key. Everyone has free access to the Data Base and to all our posted pages. Enjoy and Happy Hunting Ryan Jackson Data Base Manager America's First Families
Hi, Does anyone know anything about the genealogy of any of these Confederate soldiers and/or army staff? A friend sent me these names: Pate, John Hugh - Lieutenant Colonel. Pate, John Haynes-Major. Pate, Redding Hamilton - Assistant Surgeon. These men were from Georgia (please see the subject line), and I believe that I could have a collateral relationship to them. I am trying to find a qualifying ancestor for the Military Order of the Stars and Bars (MOS&B), and I need a relative (lineal or collateral). I know that a number of Pates served in the War.

Good evening everyone, I am Margie Daniels a researcher and member of the CGGS. My surnames are Evans, Glover, Paschal, Gray, Frederick just to name a few. I am up against a brick wall with two women in my family. Emma Jane Gray. Emma married Nathan O’ Glover in Taylor county Feb. 1879. She had siblings names Davis Young, Mattie Young (believed to have married a Wolf) Cassie Young. My other brick wall is Eleander (Penolepe) Frederick. Eleander married Thomas W. Glover in Warren county Georgia. They moved to Crawford county> Stewart County and finally to Barbour County Alabama where they remained until they died. I have not been able to find out a thing about Eleander other than she was a member of Mt. Paran Primitive Baptist Church. If anyone has any information on these ladies, I would greatly appreciate the help. Margie Daniels --- Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free.
