Family history is important to me, and I have been involved in genealogy for over 30 years. I gather, compile, and maintain info for the following families which is a work in progress. My family lines: Cribb, Luke, Register, Creed, Alderman, Newton, Carter, Connell, Lee, Wilson, Brewer, Smith. Ancestry.com public family tree files: "Luke and Allied Lines" and "Cribb Cribbs". 1st husband lines: Tripp, Castleberry, McCranie, Akins, Moore, Powell, Livingstone, May, Beasley, Purvis, Giddens. Ancestry.com public family tree file: "Tripp Castleberry" 2nd husband lines: Hayes, Braziel, Alderman, Hiers, Kinard, Baker, Mobley, Jernigan, and allied lines. Ancestry.com public family tree files: "Annis in Name Only". My Ancestry.com "Connection Collection" is a combined file of my files, 1st husband, 2nd husband, allied lines, and some non-related families. It contains approximately 40,000 names.
I am a charter member of the Cook County Historical Society, and I have taken on the project of ensuring that memorials for Cook Co cemetery interments are posted on Find A Grave. In addition, family links and other researched info will be added. My Ancestry.com file for this research is "Find A Grave Research" and "Connections Collection." A special thank you to Find A Grave surveyor and photographer, Cat, who has worked closely with me on this project.
Linking family members is my objective and my contribution to the citizens of Cook Co, GA. I encourage others to add any known links as this is not an ownership project.
Please credit Find A Grave for any information you find useful. I will transfer memorials of your relatives, but please include your Find A Grave member number with your request.
We honor our ancestors by remembering them. email@example.com

Union Cemetery It is located in Worth Co. Doerun is really in both counties right on the County Line. If you are having trouble finding something the Georgia DOT map is online by counties. It is hidden now but keep looking, it is there. DOT map has cemeteries.
Merritt Arthur "Logan" Sanders I am trying to find the parents of Merritt Arthur Sanders and have had no luck at all. Would love this info if you have it.
Also, Ulysses Manassa "Uley" Sanders b. 23 May 1872: There is a child listed for him and Sallie Belle Martin as James Cauley "Jim" Sanders. Jim was my grandfather and he is the illegitimate son of Uley and a woman by the name of Suler Lindsey. He lived with her and her mother Winnie E. Lindsey as a young boy until Suler ate some poison berries and died. He is listed as Cauley Lindsey in, I believe, the 1910 census. Uley and Sallie then took him in and raised him and gave him the last name of Sanders. I'm not sure if the name Suler is correct. It may have been Siller (short for Priscilla). Any info on grandaddy's mother would be welcomed.
Then there is the Carter line: John Wesley Carter "Papa Carter" b. 04 Jul 1875 and Laura Elizabeth Simmons Carter "Mama Carter" b. 10 Oct 1876. These are the parents of my grandmother Daisy Bell Sanders. Daisy married Jim Sanders. I have no idea who Mama Carter's parents are. We have been told that Mama Carter was full blooded Cherokee but I have not been able to find any info on her parents or family at all. If you come across something I would love to know. I am the last in line to claim enough Cherokee blood to join the tribe but I have been unable to find any records of any kind.
Thank you so much for any help you can give. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
