**JUST A REMINDER, due to the summer canning and freezing season, it may take me a few days to respond to any requests -- Please be assured that I will respond.


I have been researching our family genealogy for many years, and fell in love with Findagrave. What a wonderful way to share research.

Our family lines are:

Austin, Briggs, Harper, Gregg, Jordan, Morgan, Nelms, McLain, McMurtrey, Mercer, Mims, Parker, Sentell, Smith, Waits, Walters and allied lines.

Addy, Bernhard(t), Bonner, Bunn, Davis, Gable, Gordon, Lesly, Lightner, Lites, Millsaps, Rawls, Swygert, Taylor, Thompson, Vanderford, Watkins and allied lines.

Please let me know if you think I may be of assistance.

Elijah Corley
My gg grandfather is Elijah J Corley. I have been googling the Elijah H Corley at the Haralson cemetery for sometime and had dismissed it as ,y guy so one day I decided to ride over and take a look.
I noticed the the H middle initial on the tombstone is actually the last letter of his first name and not a middle initial. Thus his name is Elijah Corley.
I believe my Elijah to have been involved in the Creek Indian Land Fraud and lived around Columbus during that time.
I was curious if you had knowledge of this Corley family?

Hi M & R,

Thank you for these 2 websites; I have made a note of them to keep close at hand.

Do you perchance have a website to be able to check for GA Births & Deaths?

I called the Spalding Co Courthouse re: old birth & death records and I was told that even if I came in to the office in person, I would not be allowed to look at the Birth & Death records (of Jonathan's wives & babies that we don't have specific dates for) because I was not a daughter, granddaughter or spouse. I said, "are you kidding? These relatives have been dead for over 150 years! There are no such relatives to be able to walk into your office! She said the rule had to do with "privacy" issues. Again, I said, "are you kidding?" Privacy? They are long since deceased!!!!"

Anyway, gave me another number to call and I've not had any luck reaching some one there...I will try again tomorrow.

I did reach a very helpful woman at the Spalding County Probate Judge's office. She spent considerable time looking for a Last Will & Testament of Jonathan, but did not find one. I realize he died in Newnan, Coweta while living with his son Robert Fulton Milner, but I thought as a 30-year resident & merchant of Griffin, his Will (if he had one) might have been probated in Spalding Co. I will check with Coweta County tomorrow.

Do you live in the Spalding/Coweta/Pike Counties area?

Will do more research on the family tomorrow...I believe I'm "all in all done" for today.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Mike's Memorial
Robin, Got your note, not a problem, I deleted my Memorial. I did check, guess we were making them at the same time :-) just wanted to make sure he had one. It was good to see you as well, our thoughts and prayers continue for Celie and all of you.

Mrs. Rutledge's death certificate says she was buried at South Bend. Death certificates are sometimes wrong but that's the evidence I have.

RE: Mary Willson Leslie
The cemetery is in a cow pasture now.We found where the cemetery had been recoded years earlier(in the Abbeville Library)...and native of Ireland had been on the stone. Wish we could find his stone. It is probably buried there or may have been broken.

Hi There, Thanks for the transfer. I'll ask GAFirefighter to repost his photo. I'd had the same thing happen to me. DOn't know why it happens. Any thanks for your help. Joyce

RE: J.T. Dial and Daniel Dial
You are correct. It's obvious I sent the wrong parents Find A Grave number. I'll go back over my note and and send you the correct ones. Sorry for the confusion. Amanda's sister, Mary Elenor Giles Jordan, is my g, g grandmother. Joyce
