Hi, I seen you left a message on Lucy Carter's memorial page. This lady is my husband's great Aunt (who he never knew or met.) It looks like from your message you knew her. Can you please share some information about her? We'd love to know anything/everything you're willing to share. If you feel like emailing me instead, my email address is
Thanks so very much!

Hey Nancy, I noticed you have researched the Gay's in Laurens Co, Ga. I, also, have Gays in my family tree & was wondering if you've ever heard of mine since I cannot seem to get anywhere with them. My great- grandma was Jennie Gay Conner (F.A.G. Memorial# 99882357) Her mother was Mary Gay; her sister= Almeaid; & she had a brother named James/ Jim who, I believe, is buried down in Alamo, Ga.
Jennie's death certificate doesn't list her parents.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)... Cathy

oh... are you the same Nancy on the William Fountain descendants FB page? :)

RE: The Gay Family
I would love to have anything you want to share on the Clarks. Elizabeth Clark was my 2nd great grandmother. Do you live in Laurens County?

I went to the Oconee Library last week, looking for Laurens County Newspaper Clippings by Tad Evans. Looking for info for Luther White @1861-1919? Their info for the early 1900's was limited.

I have the Burch, Harrell & Allied Families volumes & the Laurens County cemetery book.

RE: The Gay Family
John Jacob Asker Gay was my 2nd great grandfather, married to Elizabeth Clark. His last name was Holton & in 1841 he changed it to Gay. His mother was Mary Polly Holton.

John Gay & Elizabeth Clark are buried at the Old Cedar Grove church location. My cousin was there but didn't take a picture of their graves. There are other graves, too.

RE: The Gay Family
I don't have William T Gay or Jonah Gay, but there could be a connection I haven't matched.

RE: The Gay Family
I didn't know know much about the Gay's when I started genealogy in 2009. It seems our line started with Jacob Gay & Mary Polly Holton. They must not have been married as the kids changed their names from Holton to Gay in 1841. They lived in the area of Cedar Grove, Laurens, GA.

Thank you for sharing. So sad, I couldn't begin to think of losing 3 sons in the war.

Hello Nancy.
I'm Terrill Parrish from Macon Co, NC. I've been working on my genealogy since Aug 2008 when the VA thought I should have a hobby. I'd like to exchange family information with you. May I use the information and photos you list on Find A Grave?

RE: Rhodes
Our line of Rhodes was from Fluvanna County in the early 1800s. I don't know currently how many remain there. My line moved to Fayetteville, NC (Robert L. Rhodes). This is the one who married the Branch daughter, sister of William M. Branch, Jr. Many of the Rhodes worked for the railroad and some for Western Union in NC or Virginia.

Added by NCgensearch on May 11, 2014 6:41 PM

I see you are researching Rhodes also. Where we're your Rhodes located? Mine were from Fluvanna Co., VA.

RE: William McNeil Branch
Thank you very much for linking them. There is a sister, Lila Branch Peele, whose grave I have not been able to locate that probably is in Scotland Co., NC. We have never been able to locate a grave or death certificate for
William, Sr.

Virginia was my great great grandmother through her daughter, Louise. Two of Virginia's grandchildren are still living, both 98 yo this year.

How are you connected to William? I met a great grandson of his a few years ago.

Thank you so much for the photo. Sadie's daughter was one of my mother's best friends. Now that I see her photo, I can see that she and her daughter looked so much alike.

Jim Bass
RE: Martha Clark Bass
Cool! Yes, Adolph Bass was my great-grand-uncle. But like all good southern families we have lines that cross and criss-cross. My mother is a Clark, but from a Clark line in Duval Co., FL. I have traced my Clarks to a Francis Clark who died in Edgecombe Co., NC in 1848 (he was born about 1790). It is very possible that my Francis Clark is related to your husband's Clarks. Has he done any DNA testing? We have tested two confirmed related lines on my Clarks and found only one match in the database. It is to Littleton Ballard Clark.

RE: Martha Clark Bass
Hi Nancy

Thank you for your help. Martha Clark's nickname was Mattie - her sister in law was Sudie Bass. Keep in mind that in 1902, these girls were not married yet, so Martha Clark Bass was "Mattie Clark" in 1902.

How interesting that we have a Jacksonville connection. How is your husband related to me? You said he was my cousin and I am excited to know how.

Thanks so much for the info on Thomas A J Mobley's burial place. You've been busy!

I'm sorry to say I don't have a Mobley Bible. Wish I could help you with your search. You've dug up some wonderful info on the Mobleys.

Thank you for staying in touch, and remembering our mutual Mobley connection. Contact me anytime, and maybe at some point, I'll be able to offer you something. You've been so helpful to me!

Best regards,

RE: Moses Todd, Jr. #61962956
I am sorry you missed them before. This is one of the most beautiful cemeteries I have had occasion to visit. When I saw your Find a Grave memorials for the cemetery I thought I might be able to locate it. It was not where I expected it to be. I had to knock on doors until someone pointed me in the right direction. Come visit again soon and bring a GPS!
