Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Carol and have lived in Georgia all my life. Residing in N.E. Atlanta for many years and grew up in Hapeville, Georgia.

My Dad began this amazing journey in finding our heritage. While on this journey we had discovered so many relatives and friends.

Peternal Lineage ...

Hape ~ Rogers ~ Puderbach ~ Putnam ~ Hall ~ Naill ~ Ecker ~ Engel ~ Reifsnider ~ King ~ Robbins ~ Thompson ...

Maternal Lineage ...

Hunt ~ Edwards ~ Harris ~ Brown ~ Clay ~ Simmons ~ Wingate ~ Maddox/Maddux ~ Knott ~ LeSueur ~ Stinson ~ Bryant ~ Harper ~ Wyatt ~ Tyler ~ Strother ~ Shy/Shi ~ Chastain ~ Hancock ~ Batte ~ Birchett/Burchett ~ Judkins ~ Polk ~ McLarty ~ Eidson ~ Daniell ...

Most of these memorials are based on personal research from my family history (birth, death, marriage, military & other records). Other information was taken from grave markers or obituaries that I've discovered over the years. Cannot guarantee the accuracy of all these memorials, but believe most of them to be correct.

Will be glad to make memorial transfers upon request that is if related. Would very much like to hear from you and should you have any additional information and if there are any corrections to be made, please let me know.

I am in California but was just out there and found relatives as well as went to Dads grave and my Aunts. They are brother/sister and are in the Brown Family Plot. I posted pics. Felt like I had come home.

you have the date of birth down as 1802 but with entering that info into my tree I am wondering if that is not the date of death. Could you look into this and let me know. Thank you

Freeman Clements 1847- 1932
Hi Rhonda, Freeman was my great x3 grandfather. The family records have him being born "Freeman Jewett Clements". I'm curious to know where you found him listed as John "Freeman" Clements. I recall either a census or military record that had some variation on his name but not sure where I saw it. I had heard he was a drummer boy during the Civil War. He would have been only about 15 at its onset. Two of his brothers did not make it home,another returned with one leg. Do you recall where you found him recorded as John?
