|Bio and Links|
I have researched my ancestry for over 45 years. The surnames in my direct lineage include Parker, Currence, Legg, Mooney, Wilbanks, Thomas, Holbrook, Thayer, Wright, Rooker, McCallum, Hawkins, Maret, Isbell, Keese, Strain, Bandy, Cleckler, Goodson, Whisenant, Head, and Suggs.|
Having grown up in Rome, GA, I attended the Rome City Schools and graduated from West Rome High School in 1961. I attended Shorter College and graduated in 1965 with a B. A. degree, major in Biology. Upon attending graduate school at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, I received the Ph. D. degree in 1971 with a specialty in Zoology. After post-doctoral studies in Medical Parasitolgy and an instructor's position at the Medical College of Virginia (Microbiology Dept.), I taught biology at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC for a few years before going to North Georgia College and State University (now University of North Georgia).
I am a retired university Professor having taught courses in Human Anatomy & Physiology, Medical Microbiology, Human Histology, Medical Parasitology, and Wildlife Biology. I retired in 2005 from North Georgia College and State University after 37 years of teaching at the college level.
I have membership with the Sons of Confederate Veterans, National Society Sons of the American Revolution, Society of Indian Wars of the United States, Descendants of Washington's Army at Valley Forge, and the General Society of Colonial Wars.
Currently I am compiling a new edition to my book: "The Strain Family: A Genealogy of the Descendants of Andrew Strain, Sr. of North Carolina" which was originally published in 1985. For a number of years I have been the Historian for the Strain Family Association which meets annually on the third Sunday in July at the Sugar Valley Baptist Church, Sugar Valley, Georgia.

|junebug||RE: Jacob Gordon Cleckler and James|
Thank you for the confirmation for Jacobs' grandson James' parents!
I also was able to confirm this with a relative and, thankfully, requested linking for him yesterday.
This is not my line, but rather a friend from church, who is a descendant of James' sister Maybel (who just recently passed).
Such a blessing... you've been a huge help and all the research you've done will surely bless this line.
Again, thank you!

|K||RE: William Wilbanks|
I apologize. The informaton you have and the information I have are in fact different. I have not seen nor read that book. The information I have in my possession came from the gg grand-niece of William Wilbanks (Jr. or the son of William Wilbanks) and her family bible.
Thank you for your time and information.

William Wilbanks (50395514) is my GGG Grandfather. He is actually a Jr. His Father, William Woolbanks/Wilbanks Sr. was the Revolutionary War Veteran.
His birth is incorrect. He was born in 1783 Spartanburg, SC
Would you mind transfering his memorial over to me? If not, thank you for managing his memorial.

Hello James, you may remember we spoke about a year ago via email regarding the Currence family book you contributed to in the 1970s. I saw the pictures of James Laban and would like to use them on my Ancestry Tree if you don't mind.
Thank you for all you do.
|Frances Ann||RE: William Moses Brand and Minnie Lee Currence|
James, Thank you for your reply. I do have one story about Minnie and Mary's mother.(I think it was their mother) I don't remember her too well, but I do remember that she lived with Aunt Minnie. One winter she was setting in front of the fire place in her room, Aunt Minnie's granddaughter,the daughter of her adopted daughter,and I, saw her eating a wax bunny. Of course we told the adults and they took it away from her. In 2003 when my mother (Ada Brand Henley) died, I found that very same wax bunny in her things, you can still see her teeth marks. What a surprise because I had thought about that day a lot over the years. I didn't know my mother had saved this bunny all those years. I'm now 73 and that happen when I was about 10, maybe younger. I also remember Aunt Minnie's sister, she lived next door to Aunt Minnie in Inman Yards, part of Atlanta. I think it's spelled "Inman" As far as family records, when I try to research the family, I get so confused, I have to put it all away. I do have a lot of "stuff" but it's hard to keep it organized. Thanks again. Frances A.

Thank you for posting the pictures of William Moses Brand and Minnie Lee Currence. William and Minnie raise my mother ( Ada Rebecca Brand Henley ) after her parents died. William was the brother of my mothers father. ( Calvin Brand ) I spent a lot of my yearly years at " Aunt Minnie's " By that time she was Mrs Frank Mays. My brother's are named after them. William and Lee Henley. It's the first time I've seen a picture of the daughter that died at a very young age. Thank You again. Frances A. Henley Cohorst
