Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find a Grave is a wonderful resource with many sincere, generous, and hard working volunteers. Sharlotte Donnelly's information and photos on Find a Grave are free to be used by other researchers.

Sharlotte Kathleen Bridgette Neely Donnelly is Professor of Anthropology and Director of Native American Studies at Northern Kentucky University and is the author of Snowbird Cherokees and Native Nations, co-author of This Land Was Theirs, and author of the science fiction novel Kasker, among other publications. She received her college degrees from Georgia State University in Atlanta (BA) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (MA and PhD).

Sharlotte's ancestry is Irish, Scots, Scots-Irish, Welsh, English, Viking, Norman French, German, other European, both west and north African, southwest Asian, and Lumbee Native American. Like the prehistoric Ítzi the Iceman found in the Alps, she is a descendent of the matrilineal clan of "Katrine" (mtDNA haplogroup K, specifically K1a4a1b) who lived near present-day Venice, Italy about 15,000 years ago. Sharlotte also has a small amount of Neanderthal and Denisovan ancestry.

She is the only child of Joseph Bowden Neely and Kathleen Bell Neely, originally of Savannah, Georgia. Sharlotte is married to anthropologist, attorney, and high school athletic director Thomas Christian Christopher Donnelly, and they have one child, Mary Kathleen Bridgette Elisabeth Donnelly, and one grandchild, Mary Kathleen Quinn Donnelly. The family lives in Cincinnati, Ohio. Sharlotte's personal web page is at Sharlotte's Anthropology Page. Sharlotte's genealogy web page is at the Donnelly and Neely Family Page. She has been interested in genealogy since she was a small child working on her family history with her maternal grandmother, Nevada McClelland Bell. Her love of visiting cemeteries comes from her paternal grandmother, Nettie King Neely Riley.

Family surnames include Donnelly, Heffernan, Meiners, Estermann, Stauber, Albrecht, Simon/Siemon, Hoffmann, Neely, Sarvis, King, Edwards, Bell, Downs, McClelland/McLindon, Glisson, and others.

RE: Thanks!
Yes, Wiley W. Hendrix's wife is buried in Poplar Springs Cemetery, Bulloch County, GA. Her name was Sarah WILLIAMS Hendrix (1828-1890), about 11 years older than Wiley. Her memorial number on Find A Grave is #64669540 and her grave marker photo was added on 1/25/2011 by Craig & Tonya Banks. I'm not quite sure how she ended up being buried here and Wiley being buried in Candler County, but maybe her and Wiley once lived in Bulloch County. Maybe, since she died about 18 years before Wiley, that he moved away. A little puzzling, but I'm sure there is a reason for this. I hope this helps. ~ Kurt Lau

RE: Thanks!
Sharlotte, you are quite welcome for the Hendrix gravesite photos. Wiley Hendrix & Malakiah Hendrix are buried right next to each other in Cool Spring Cemetery. I'm glad that I was able to fulfill your request(s) for you. ~ Kurt Lau
