Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the spring of 2010, I became interested in finding out more about my father's family. My g-g-g-g grandfather, John P Lyle, settled in Paulding Co, Georgia, sometime before 1840. It is thought that he received land in the 1832 land lottery of the Cherokee lands. I worked on the LYLE family tree and then started looking for the graves of my extended family. I spend the majority of my time looking for graves in Paulding County and the counties that surround Paulding, such as Haralson, Polk, Bartow, Carroll, Douglas, Cobb and Cherokee. I have found this to be a great way to fill in those extra hours I now have in my life as a retired person.
I have to give credit to my brother, Tom 'CC' Lyle, and to my 1st cousin once removed, Dianne Eberhardt, for allowing me to use their genealogy research information in several of my FAG memorials.

Marriage license for T T Atkinson & Martha Jane Girard
Hello! Can you tell me how you came to have that marriage license for Tolleson Townsend Atkinson and Martha Jane Girard? I am a direct descendant of them, and we spelled her name Girard; His name as Tollerson. Their firstborn daughter, Ada Alice, was my gg grandmother. I have pictures of her holding my mother as an infant. Ada Alice dictated her memories to our Aunt Seesie, who typed them up into a manuscript in 1942. I have 3 copies of those original msnuscripts. Ada Alice said their name was Girard, and that Stephen Girard, famous philanthropist from Philadelphia, was her mother's uncle. I can find no informstion for Martha Jane Girards parents: Lemuel and Elizabeth Girard, as written in our family information. I see you have a Martha Jane Lyle. Is there a connection thst you know of? Thank you!

Joseph G W Bishop and Nettie Barrett
Hi Sandy, my name is Cherice. I am related to Joseph G W Bishop and Nettie Barrett by their daughter, Lorene Bishop Bright. She is my great grandmother. I just started researching my family tree a week or two ago, and today I came across your post on another members page, and I was wondering how (if you are) related to Joseph G W Bishop and Nettie Barrett.
Thank you for your time. If you could please respond back to me, that would be the absolute best! My email is

Elizabeth Faulkner Johns
Thank you so much for your research and your "sharing."

I noticed your entry for Elizabeth Faulkner Johns (1824-1905) and thought because of the notes included on her page that she might be part of your lineage. My husband is descended from her younger brother Thomas Peatry Faulkner. I have been trying to find more information/documentation on the John Thomas Faulkner and Cynthia McEver Faulkner family but keep finding that the "sources" are simply other family trees (many that use seemingly improbable birthdates of 1809 and 1813 given their 24 April 1822 marriage record). I found Cynthia living with Thomas in the 1860 census (with a more reasonable birthdate of about 1802) but cannot find the family in the 1850 or Cynthia in 1870 census. Numerous family trees list Cynthia's death date as 1880 in Paulding County and that she's buried in Mount Olive Cemetery in Paulding County. I assumed this was supposed to be Mount Olivet Cemetery; however, none of the inventories I've seen show any Faulkner graves. I also did not see Elizabeth Faulkner Johns' grave in these inventories and thought, perhaps, you had family history or better documentation that showed that Elizabeth Johns (and perhaps Cynthia McEver Faulkner) were indeed buried at Mount Olivet. Thanks again for your hard work.

Thanks for the research and posting.
Arthur Edgar (Ed) Eberhardt is my Grandfather on mom's side. The picture of his mom (Fanny Elise Sabine (Hommert) Eberhardt is beautiful. Grandpa Art could weave a spellbinding story second to none. He had a laid back drawl together with an adventurous spirit. Whenever he perused a map his eyes lit up. He was an accomplished logger& woodsman. He also played the concertina quite well and I still remember the twinkle in his eye when he made music. Like many who edured the depression they knew hard, hard times. Honored to be part of this heritage.
