Bio and Links
In 1992, my husband brought home a genealogy program for the computer and we realized how very little we knew about our families. We have been hooked on genealogy ever since. We have made some wonderful trips, discovered some interesting tales, and had a lot of fun.

We are researching the following family names:
Walker, McCollum, Smith, McElfresh, Wall/Walls, Shumate, Hester, Moulton, Hill, Hawkins, Jackson, Cobb, Millsap, Tittle, Collins, Johnson, Womack, Story, Floyd, Shirley & Carter plus numerous others linking to these.

Elizabeth M. Wright #88230138
Hi Carolyn,

You posted on Elizabeth Wright's grave that her husband was William. Is this one of your ancestors? Elizabeth was the daughter of James Townsend Nowlin and Maud Morgan. Maud Morgan was the oldest child of James T. Morgan, who was my great-great-great-great-grandfather. I'm trying to find out more about the Morgans.

Walker addendum
This raises a couple of interesting questions I'd like to run by you to see what you think! I'm sending a follow-up email.

So much for the usefulness of the death certificate, right? I'll remove it from the memorial, and correct my records which have now been thrown a mile out of phase.

I figured for certain that the info must've been correct since the informant was 'John Walker'. The Walker family to whom I referred you was also out of South Carolina and - like you - I've been unable to move any farther.

I wish you the best of luck. Thanks for the correction.

RE: Samuel Hugh Hawkins
Hey Caroline: So you and my husband are some sort of cousins!

I have the original photo of Samuel Hugh Hawkins. We named our son after him: Samuel Hawkins Dykes - and we call him Hawk.

The picture came through Bobby's Grandmother - Agnes Hawkins Dykes - daughter of Samuel Hugh and Cordelia Dorcas Ann Matthews Hawkins. I can send you a digital copy if you would like. My email is

Where do you live? We live in Stone Mountain, Georgia. We were back in Americus last summer to bury Bobby's precious Mother. I took photos of all the Hawkins' graves. I found myself explaining to HIS family who all the people were. I am the one interested in Family History - but I still thought it was funny.

Let me know about the photos. Cheers, Mary

Polly was born in 1798. Her son, Peter Adams Tittle was born in 1815 McMinnville, Warren Co. Her son married Sally Martin.

It was Polly that married William Jefferson Tittle.

Peter Adams
Hi, there,

It was actually Polly's dad that was Peter Adams b. in 1770 to Jacob Adams and Mary Cooper Peake. Polly b. 1798 m William Jefferson Tittle b. 1791.

Certainly were a lot of Adams and Tittle.

Barbara Smith Dunn
grandmother was Maudie Virginia Tittle Smith born to Samuel C. Tittle and Sarah A. Lance born to William Lance and Sarah A. Miller Lance.

Samuel C. Tittle was the son of Lorenzo Dow Tittle who married Nancy J. Goff.

RE: Giles Beacham
Carolyn, My son and I did a lot of Hollywood. James Stephens systematically searched each and every bit of Hollywood - it took a little over two years to do so. He marked areas with survey ribbons so he knew where he had been. He has a website with an ariel map and he sectioned up each part of Hollywood. (Stephens There are many, many graves - at least 1/3 of those buried there, are without markers, maybe more. I think after Oakland's indigent section filled, folks were buried at Hollywood, because the cost was small per lot - about $12.00. As far as I know, Giles was buried at Hollywood. I have seen obits with more than one burial location on them - it was like the family couldn't quite decide where. You can call Westview if you like and they can tell you for sure. They are nice and helpful there, or they were a few years ago. They can even tell you if there is a marker or not. Hope this helps.

Hello Pattie, I got all excited when I saw Lydia Ann Story Atterbury,
with you also looking for the Carter name. Am still trying to find
what happened to my great-grandma, Lydia Ann Carter who was in the hh
of J.E. Story, lst as a housekeeper with her 3 children shown as "borders".
That was the 1920 Census, with 3 younger children Myrtle, Mayzie & Joe Carter.
Her maiden name was Carter, too. By 1930 Mr Story was with Mattie Settles,
with his son..and by that fall, I believe, he and the boy had passed away
from injuries in a fire, is how it's explained on someone's tree. Where
did Lydia go..did she die in the fire? I've been told that she and Mr Story
married and divorced during the 20's. I did see a marraige license app, at
one time, but don't know if it was ever returned to the clerks office for
filing, or where the "proof" of divorce is/or where. If you come up with
any info, I'd sure appreciate it. I paid the Cass Co Clerk's office in
Linden for someone whose dates seem to match up, but the Lydia Carter in
Atlanta was a black lady who's other info wasn't even close! How did
Lydia Ann Story Atterbury fit into the picture, I wonder? Lydia had two
older sons, Wolford and Tom Carter, who'd lived in Marshall, Tx, then
Tom moved to the Shreveport/Bossier area, where he lived his life out, but
I can't find anything or anyone who seems to know anything about Lydia!
Hopefully someone will turn up who can tell me something.
My grandmother..Lydia's oldest dtr, Mary Alice Carter-Cook lived nearly all
her adult/married life, in the Hughes Springs area, except for when
they seemed to go over around Woodlawn/Jefferson/Marshall, for the birth of
a couple of kids...Nothing was ever mentioned about their families.
I noticed you had a name with McWilliams mentioned as a maiden name. and my
grandad's lst wife was Lena May McWilliams, of Hopkins/Fannin Co, who died
in childbirth with her 2nd child. Then he ended up in Quanah Tx marrying my
grandmother..Lydia's dtr of 15, he a 28 y/o widower..why were they out there,
I don't know. Lots of mysteries before Lydia ends up in the JE Story hh..
and during and afterward!

RE: Mary J. Childers Gist #58075855
I cannot find that information.
I had allot of genealogy information on a thumb drive and about 2 yrs. ago it disappeared I've got no idea where it is.
Sorry for the lousy record keeping!
