|Turner Collins||RE: Vardy Collins|
I have thoroughly researched this line of Collinses and Gibsons and find no connections. They do not go where my ancestors are known to go. Sorry, Can't continue thisfruit less dialog.

|Eli Chandler||Reunion of Carroll County Families!|
Hey Saponi, whats all this I keep seeing about this reunion of Carroll County, Ga. families? Just curious! I looked at one of the Sandtown sites. I am descended from a Chandler family that I guess never made the list. Some Coweta Muscogee blood as well. You know the first circuit attorney(John Chandler)that lived around the spring in Carrollton(1823?). Any more info. about anything going on would be appreciated. Sincerely, Eli Chandler

|Turner Collins||RE: Your line is the indian collins|
Even with all this good information, there is still no evidence that my ancestory, Sylvester Collins, is related to the Collins to which you refer in your communications. I cannot just assume that he is one of them. I need some familial connection; parents, siblings, etc.

|Turner Collins||RE: Susanna collins|
Thanks for all the information you have provide to me. I think that I am looking for the "other" Susannah Collins who was white. I have no evidence (legend or otherwise) that our family traces back to Indian heritage. I may find it, but am not persuing that line at the moment. My Collinses do not seem to go where the Collins families of Indian ancestry goes. Will let you know if I find a connection to Indian heritage.

The Mattamuskeet Documents arer an intteresting read, but do not reveal anything for me. My Susannah's mothere was Sally, wife of William Dobbins. There were two Susannah's from Granville County, NC, that were contemporary.

Thanks so much for this information. I've been at a dead end for some time. I have traced some of the melungeon Collinses, but can't make any connections there. I'll check out your suggestions for connections to my Sylvester.

|Turner Collins||Susannah Collins Dobbins|
I think that Susannah Collins might be related somehow to my gggrandfather Sylvester Collins of Rutherford County NC and Spartanburg SC. He was associated with the High Shoals Church. He married Martha Thorn of Spartanburg. If you have information on Susannah's immediate family I would very much like to know what you have; parents, siblings, etc.

Sorry, but I'm not related to anyone in your family. I sometimes pick a name or cemetery at random and leave tributes or flowers. I just happened to choose your loved one by chance.

Hey There,,thank you for all the wonderful info,,my best friends last name is Lowery,her folks are from Tennessee,I told her it's a chance our family's might be related down the line ( how awesome would that be!!).
You inspired me to research again the Hilderbrand's so last night I was on the Sandtown Village Facebook page,and found some pics of tombstones.I saw a Conrad Hilderbrand and a Mary Chastain,,there is a Conrad Hilderbrand and a Margaret Chastain in my family line,they married with the Berry's and Postell's,,and Matilda Postell Berry was said to be Cherokee,I looked back at the census for Matilda Berry and it said her race was white (not happy),,but I know sometimes that's what they would put down.. have a good rest of the weekend :) :) and thank you again!

|Beverly L.||RE: Hilderbrand|
Good Morning,,Thank you for the information.Some time ago while doing family history research I came across the Hilderbrand name.According to the Macon County North Carolina Heritage book one of my ancestors Matilda Postell Berry was full blood Cherokee.Matilda was born in 1813 and was from Union County Ga.Her husband was Logan Berry and his mother's name was Mary Hilderbrand,so I did some research on the Hilderbrand name and that's probably where I ran across your website. I have tried to do research on the Cherokee connection but can't find really anything. A word of mouth story from my grandmother however gave me a clue,her grandmother Sarah Moore which was Matilda's Postell's daughter had long black straight hair (which nobody else has)and her nickname was little Dutch...Anyway I hope I didn't bore you with my story,,I joined your facebook page and will be checking out your website.My email is email@example.com Thank you again,Bev :)

Thanks. I'll look at the sites. Always glad to learn more about my families.

I saw your list of Carroll county families. I have some of them in my records as side families, not my direct lines. My main lines there are Duke, Boon and Lassetter/Lassiter. They were part Native American of the Nottoway tribe.

|Robin Knowles Miner||RE: Holcombe, Beall,|
my great grandparents were egbert pendleton beall and nancy ann idella holcombe.
Egbert was the son of James Jesse Beall and Sarah Matilda Watts.
Nancy A I Holcombe was the daughter of William Joseph Holcombe and Nancy Elizabeth Watson.
Most of the folks you named are related to me. I was not aware of Indian heritage, but I never heard anything about grandma's family since her husband died when my mama was 6. It seems the Entrekin side abandoned her and the beall side was too far away for a young mother with 3 children to get to.... so I love learning about the family I never knew. thanks

I took many pictures in the Jordan cemetery. Most of the memorials were already created. I have Wards in my line also. They were in SC and went to AL, then to TX where my line married the Freeman line that was from Carroll Co. That Ward/Freeman line had 11 children and about half of them have high cheek bones and slanted eyes. They look very Indian. I don't have a lot of concrete evidence that this family and their ancestors were Indian. The only one I know for sure was Mary Combs b 1830 VA. She was cherokee. Thanks for your messages, this is very interesting!
