|Bio and Links|
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:
Samuel COMBS 53 farmer Ky
Sally 32 housewife
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...

|Sgt Ed Elstan||Greetings|
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year...Ed
|Judy K. Brantley/Wilson||RE: Hi|
Rhonda, Wishing you a Merry Christmas, too. Thank you for all you do on findagrave and always updating pages from request quickly. It makes our work so much easier. Maybe one day, we will get everyone in Atlanta on there. Again, Marry Christmas to you and yours.
|Grave Whisperer||J Iler Gillespie Find A Grave Memorial# 81197548|
Thank you for the photos and edits you've done lately for many of my memorials. I saw your edit for J Iler Gillespie Find A Grave Memorial# 81197548 to change his middle initial to I. I also noticed on your headstone photo that it said his middle name was Iler so I changed the J. that I had originally to what is on the headstone. Is that good with you? I'm "ignoring" that one edit until we discuss it.
I hope you and yours have a blessed Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.

|William Burkhart||Silas Horton (2)|
I haven't been idle since I last talked to you. There has been a lot of work since then. I noticed that the site has been cleaned up. It looks about right now. There are still a few bugs about dates and where they lived, but for the most part the two Silas Horton have now been separarted.
I am now a member of the NSSAR and have writeen a 14 page report to my relatives showing them my research.
You helped me in the past and I would like you to see it. I don't know how to paste it on this page, so if you would like to see it, please send me your e-mail address.
How do I get my note off the wb site since this Silas Horton isn't my relative?
|Jrigdon||Lt William Norris|
I have a lot more information about WN. He had at least one and possible two other wives (and other children?) Watkins was his 3rd wife. 2nd(?) wife was Sarah Rigdon, hence the name of his first son: Rigdon Norris. SR was my 8th great aunt. Contact me directly if you want to sort this out. I'm still trying to sort his children out!

|William Sanders||Thomas White, Jr|
I noticed you made a memorial for Thomas White, memorial #83578566, in Wintergreen Cemetery in Port Gibson, Mississippi, and there existed a marker for him. Have you seen the marker? If you could contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I would appreciate it!

Rhonda, I should have included Sarah's husband, Noah L. James, when I asked for her transfer to me. My # is 48345202. Thank you very much. Jan Adamson

Hi Rhonda, Would you consider transferring Sarah Sophronia Adamson to me, please? She is one of my great-grandfather's, Augustus Pitt Adamson, sisters. I certainly appreciate all the hard work you have done in photographing grave sites and I am thankful that you live close by that you can do the photography. It helps everyone! Jan Adamson
