Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Rhonda. I am a 64 year old mother of five and grandmother of five. I work in the airline industry and genealogy is my hobby. These are some of my family lines:

Causey, Cowart, Wells, Joiner, Humphries, Clary, Ring, Redman, Gentry, Groseclose, Ward, Kegans, Cannon, Combs, Nickell, Brady, Smallwood, the Wolfe family of Lancaster Co PA, Philpot, James, Freeman, Coleman, Smith, Buzan. I know there are many Freemans. My line can be proven to go back to William M. Freeman and wife Elizabeth Redman who were in the 1860 Fannin Co. Ga. census. I believe he was the son of Bailey M. Freeman, who died in 1852 in Carroll Co. GA. Bailey mined gold in the Villa Rica Gold mines. His son mined copper in Fannin Co Ga, and TN. Did you know that one of the reasons that the north won the Civil War is because the gold miners out west who were Union, shipped their gold east to the Union camps?

To anyone who has transferred a memorial to me of my family, THANK YOU!! If I have any of your relatives besides Rev War soldiers, and you would like a transfer, please contact me via the "edit" button on the memorial, and leave your FAG number, it makes a transfer so much easier!!! Remember, you don't have to "own" a memorial to place info in the bio. I answer all edits in a day, 2 at the most. If you would like to use any of my photos for your family genealogy, please ask. The reason I want you to ask, is because I need you to give me credit with my real name. Why? Because one day down the road, I hope that my descendants will come across one of my photos and will see my name and know how hard I worked for this great site and for family history.

Our early pioneers who were born in the 1700s and early 1800s deserve more than an empty bio, please try to put something about them on their memorials. Thanks!!

My next genealogical dead end is Sarah/Sallie Nickell, and her husband, Samuel Combs. She was born ca 1830, possibly in VA. and was Cherokee. A Samuel Combs b 1807 married a Sarah/Sallie Nickell in Morgan Co KY, and they had at least 7 children. Samuel Combs married Sarah NICKELL perf by W W GRAY per the Marriage Records of Morgan County, Kentucky, 1821-1859. They are next found in Rowan Co KY (Used to be Morgan) in 1860. We can't find them in 1850:

HH 59
Samuel COMBS 53 farmer Ky
Sally 32 housewife
Minerva 16
Jeremiah 10
John 9
Samuel 7
Leonard 4
James E. 2

Later a daughter named Mary was born. She married a Richardson, and then Sally, son Samuel, James and Mary went west, traveling pretty much along the trail of tears, arriving in Oklahoma Territory. We don't know what happened to father Samuel.

Thanks to my sister, Kim, for all of the information that she has contributed to our family memorials.

If I have made any errors in transcribing or typing, please let me know! I love adding middle names and maiden names and relationship links, so don't hesitate to let me know of any that need to be filled in!

If you are led to, please leave a flower on my Mother's page, Lin Mae Freeman Brady 34745331 ...thx...

Dellegall Campbell

Dellegall Campbell is my great, great grandfather. Are you a cousin? I need help locating information about Linnie Belle Campbell, my maternal grandmother's mother. All US Censuses except the 1920 state that her mother was Georgia Humphries but my mother wrote in my baby book that Alice Emmeline Humphries was her mother. I can't find a marriage record for Alice nor anything else except the 1920 census. Both Linnie and her husband Leroy Peterson are buried at County Line Baptist Church Cemetery.
Thanks for your help. Bitsy

And Millie Sophia Avery 79173635. You added the above and I wanted to know how you know they are buried in this cemetery and if you might know where in the cemetery they are buried. This is my home church and I have taken photos of all the stones in the cemetery and added to find a grave. All of the old records were lost in a fire years ago and I am trying to make a record for the church. Their are some unmarked graves. Any info will be very helpful.

(137547005) Carolyn Hall was (77869063) Park H. Hall's first wife. I do not have exact birth or death dates for her, however I do have a copy of the death notice in the 8/16/1911 edition of the Atlanta Constitution which indicates the funeral was to take place that day. It also indicates burial at Westview. I will keep looking for more information. Thank you!

RE: The number for Martha goes to a deleted memorial
Thanks Rhondajo, I had you in my contacts already. You wouldn't happen to be related to a Lisa Rampy who works in the oil industry in Texas would you?
