    1. [GASTEWAR] new list home - GA-STEWART
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. A new home for the Stewart county mailing list has been set up. Later this evening, I'll send out personal invitations to the subscribers of this list. 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. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1. Tim Stowell list admin

    1. [GASTEWAR] Status of the Stewart county list - 2020
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. Today the Stewart county list has 51 subscribers. With the ending of this list on 3/2, I am setting up a new list home. Later today or tomorrow, I'll send out instructions for joining said group. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1. However, I want to pass along a little bit of who I am and why my interest in this list and others. I am a native of Coweta county, the third generation of my family there. Over the years I've lived in three other counties in the state - Morgan, Newton, Gwinnett but have traveled to or through most of our state's counties In 1996, I ran across a childhood playmate, who introduced me to USGenWeb, a project I've been with since. I've held many roles in that organization and currently host websites in Tennessee, New York, Minnesota, Louisiana, and Alaska for USGenWeb. I host sites in North Dakota, Wisconsin, Georgia for AHGP (American History and Genealogy Project) and/or ALHN (American Local History Network) approximately 50 websites. Seeing the continuing value of having mailing lists, I'm currently working with approximately 130 mailing lists based on either location or particular surnames - most of which are somewhere in my tree.

    1. [GASTEWAR] 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. [GASTEWAR] 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. [GASTEWAR] 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. [GASTEWAR] 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.

    1. [GASTEWAR] Roots Web no longer supporting mailing list in March 2020
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. For those that have not heard the news ... Rootsweb will no longer be supporting mailing lists in March 2020.  It will remain read only, so archives will be accessible.  In my mind, I question how long. Please keep in mind that each mailing list archives is the property of RootsWeb and will not be able to moved, removed, etc. Only the mailing list members list will be accessible by the admin for that list. I am looking for alternatives which I have started listing below. Alternatives: Ancestry -- as I understand, this alternative is platform based. Meaning one would have to long into to post a message as opposed to simply sending an e-mail. Groups.io -- would keep mailing, but to get full function a fee would be required. Google Groups -- I have not researched this option.  Personally, I have issues with Google and will not pursue this option as admin. I suppose the major decision is whether to remain an e-mail based Group or platform based? My personal prerequisite is that it is FREE. Discussion in open...

    1. [GASTEWAR] Caroline Griffin married Langston Bacon
    2. Mary Lou Trice
    3. Caroline Griffin was born in GA to Jane and John W. Griffin in 1821.  She married Langston Bacon in Stewart County, Georgia Jan 1, 1840.  By 1850 they were living in Marion County, GA with 5 children and her mother Jane Griffin.  Langston appears in the 1860 Covington county, AL census with wife Mary, 6 of Caroline's children (the youngest born in 1852) and one child of Langston and Mary's, Lucretia A. E. age 1. Evidently Caroline passed away sometime after 1852 and before 1859.  I would like any information regarding Caroline's death.

    2. Wlamar via
    3. I am a descendant of Jonathan Miller (abt 1745-abt 1803) and his son Lewis Miller (1770-1847). Jonathan died in Hancock Co. Ga. Lewis died in Stewart Co. Lewis married Mary Groom and they had 9 children, one of which was my 3rd great grandfather, Lee Reeves Miller who moved to Henry Co. Alabama about 1847. He lived near Abbeville until his death about 1892. See his FAG Memorial at: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=49411270 As you know Henry Co adjoins Barbour Co. Alabama, however, I checked the names you provided below and I do NOT have anything on any of them. Sorry and good luck on your research. Lamar Miller -----Original Message----- From: hymnsinger via Sent: Friday, February 13, 2015 10:35 AM To: gastewar@rootsweb.com Subject: Re: [GASTEWAR] Union Baptist Church of Christ in Stewart County, Georgia I too have Millers from Stewart County that I have not been able to trace back. They migrated to Barbour Co., AL. I'm looking for the ancestors of Levi Miller, b. 1822 in Mineral Springs, Stewart Co., and his father, John Miller b. abt 1785 in Virginia. John Miller was married to Charity Smith an adopted orphan raised by the Hinds family, place unknown. Levi Miller was married to Matilda Young, daughter of Reuben Young, in Barbour Co., AL in 1860, his third wife (see below). The Miller and Young families knew each other well, migrated to Barbour from Stewart together, and lived near each other, according to the census. I believe that the John Miller family (and the Young family) may have been Jewish, but Levi became a Christian at some point. I think the move to Alabama was between 1842 and 1860. Levi Miller was a very wealthy man, with $8000 in slaves alone in 1860. Other children of John Miller were George Warren S. Miller, b. in Emanuel, GA, and Bateman Miller, said to be born in NC. George W.S. Miller married Martha A. F. Hilliard, AKA "Tempie" in Stewart Co., GA. Levi was married 3 times, the first to Tabitha Baton in 1838 in Stewart Co. They had 2 children before she died, Mansel b. Jul 1839 in what was then Dooley Co., and Anderson W., b. Jan 1840 in Stewart. Obviously, the dates are in question, but that's what the Census records reflect. Levi's second wife was Elizabeth Pope, m. in 1832 in Stewart Co., GA. Levi and Elizabeth's children born in Stewart Co. were Roxey A.J. in 1844, Peyton Orphy in 1845, Frances M in 1847, Nancy Ann in 1851, John Wesley in 1851 (twins). In Alabama they had Lucinda in 1855, Joe in 1857, Mary Jane in 1857 (twins again!) and Missouri in 1859. Elizabeth died shortly after Missouri was born. Levi Miller married Matilda Young in Barbour Co. in 1860 and their children born in GA were Robert J. Miller, Dicie (or Dicey) Miller, and William George Wesley Miller. The children born in Barbour Co, AL were Frank Levi and Lucy Miller. Confusing, I know! Seems like he traveled back to GA for a time. Then again, Census records aren't always accurate! Does anyone recognize any of these people? I have more, spouses and children, but I am out of time today! Let me know if you'd like more information.

Levi Miller was a very wealthy man, with $8000 in slaves alone in 1860. Other children of John Miller were George Warren S. Miller, b. in Emanuel, GA, and Bateman Miller, said to be born in NC. George W.S. Miller married Martha A. F. Hilliard, AKA "Tempie" in Stewart Co., GA. Levi was married 3 times, the first to Tabitha Baton in 1838 in Stewart Co. They had 2 children before she died, Mansel b. Jul 1839 in what was then Dooley Co., and Anderson W., b. Jan 1840 in Stewart. Obviously, the dates are in question, but that's what the Census records reflect. Levi's second wife was Elizabeth Pope, m. in 1832 in Stewart Co., GA. Levi and Elizabeth's children born in Stewart Co. were Roxey A.J. in 1844, Peyton Orphy in 1845, Frances M in 1847, Nancy Ann in 1851, John Wesley in 1851 (twins). In Alabama they had Lucinda in 1855, Joe in 1857, Mary Jane in 1857 (twins again!) and Missouri in 1859. Elizabeth died shortly after Missouri was born. Levi Miller married Matilda Young in Barbour Co. in 1860 and their children born in GA were Robert J. Miller, Dicie (or Dicey) Miller, and William George Wesley Miller. The children born in Barbour Co, AL were Frank Levi and Lucy Miller. Confusing, I know! Seems like he traveled back to GA for a time. Then again, Census records aren't always accurate! Does anyone recognize any of these people? I have more, spouses and children, but I am out of time today! Let me know if you'd like more information.

Does anyone have a list of graves in the cemetery? I am interested in Lewis Miller who lived in Stewart County and died there on about 9 Nov 1847. I am also interested in any other names and dates of any other Millers on that list. Lewis Miller was my g-g-g-grandfather. > > I understand from other postings that Mr. Bobby Williams may have this listing. > > Thanks so much for your help Mr. Williams and any others. > > Bryan Smith > cbryansmith@gmail.com > > Important Note: > The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
