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...

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?

Cemetery photo misuse
Just to let you know Ron & Peggy Tedder have added your cemetery photo to several memorials as a "marker photo" at Little Bethel Baptist Church, one of them is ##9439866. They have also added "bio" info in a note, both of which are against findagrave guidelines. You need to check and see how many of your photos they have used as their own.

I am a descendant of Ellis Cannon through his son Lewis. I am interested in locating other descendants of Ellis.
