Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Carol and have lived in Georgia all my life. Residing in N.E. Atlanta for many years and grew up in Hapeville, Georgia.

My Dad began this amazing journey in finding our heritage. While on this journey we had discovered so many relatives and friends.

Peternal Lineage ...

Hape ~ Rogers ~ Puderbach ~ Putnam ~ Hall ~ Naill ~ Ecker ~ Engel ~ Reifsnider ~ King ~ Robbins ~ Thompson ...

Maternal Lineage ...

Hunt ~ Edwards ~ Harris ~ Brown ~ Clay ~ Simmons ~ Wingate ~ Maddox/Maddux ~ Knott ~ LeSueur ~ Stinson ~ Bryant ~ Harper ~ Wyatt ~ Tyler ~ Strother ~ Shy/Shi ~ Chastain ~ Hancock ~ Batte ~ Birchett/Burchett ~ Judkins ~ Polk ~ McLarty ~ Eidson ~ Daniell ...

Most of these memorials are based on personal research from my family history (birth, death, marriage, military & other records). Other information was taken from grave markers or obituaries that I've discovered over the years. Cannot guarantee the accuracy of all these memorials, but believe most of them to be correct.

Will be glad to make memorial transfers upon request that is if related. Would very much like to hear from you and should you have any additional information and if there are any corrections to be made, please let me know.

RE: Request
Thank you for your response.
I only find one J. Chappell in Company D of the 14th Alabama, so I am guessing the different references I have found are for the same man.

The records I have found at Alabama Department of Archives and History and the National Archives refer to him as J. P. Chappell, J. Chappell, John Chappell, and even one G. P. Chappell. All are in the a couple of files at the National Archives.

The man who wrote the history of the 14th Alabama, Marshall B. Hurst, identified him as J. Chappell, in Company D.

I know from my research that a lot of errors were made with spellings and initials of individuals. I would appreciate any information about his Civil War service that you are willing to share.

Thank you for considering my request.

I would like permission to use the photo of John P. Chappell in a book about the 14th Alabama. I would also like to know the source of the picture.

Please contact me at

Thank you.

Lewis Luke C. Harper
Hi there,
As I have been researching Lewis (#54901495) I found that he and Judith were married first and had all of their children together and then he married 2nd Martha Henderson. (Lewis and Juda are found in the 1870 and 1880 census records together with children and in their marriage certificate showing they were married in 1868. Lewis is found married to Martha Henderson in the 1910 census record and then in his own death certificate, dying at the age of 81)

It would be great if you would make the change on this findagrave entry for Lewis Luke C. Harper.
Thank you so much for your wonderful service!!
Pam Tanner

PS it is correct when you click on martha's name that Lewis was her second husband... just needs to be changed on Lewis' page

Robert Goodloe - NC Militia
If you look up Robert Goodloe (1741-1797) in the WILLIAM GOODLOE CEMETERY in Richmond, KY (Madison County) there is a memorial from you because he was a captain in the NC militia during the revolutionary war. I thought your message was blocking me. There is an old outstanding photo request from me that no one has responded to. That is what blocked me from making another request. Sorry I thought your memorial blocked me. I met a fellow with the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) this weekend so they should have a member in that area that could assist.

RE: St John Baptist Church
The Church of St. John the Baptist, is a parish church in the Church of England located near Northwood, Isle of Wight, VA. . The church is situated to the east of the main Newport to Cowes road, approximately 400m south of the village in Chawton Lane. The church is medieval. [1]Started in the mid 1600’s. The mid-19th century saw extensive restoration work carried out on the church. In 1864 the wooden tower and dormer window were both swept away. The restoration was completed in 1874. Despite this restoration work, the church still retains many of its original features including a Norman arch over the south doorway and a Jacobean pulpit. Somewhere in the grave yard Thomas Joyner ~II 1619-1694 and his wife Sarah “Edwards” (Sallie) Joyner 1622-1694 are buried.

As for the info attached to the church picture
Thomas Joyner Royal Oak Inn Operational since 1644, owned and operated by the Joyner family from 1654 until 1705 ( I have pictures m but they will not attach here.)

Mary Campbell Lawson
Hi! I noticed you have changed the memorial for my GGGgrandmother, Mary Campbell Lawson. Since this is my memorial, I did not know this was possible. However, I believe you have the wrong information (according to all of the Lawson researchers).

Would you mind telling me how you came to the conclusions that you entered on the memorial as well as your sources? Mary Campbell has been our brick wall for many years, and no one has been able to prove her parents, etc.

Would appreciate your contacting me directly at

RE: Sarah Naill ... 2nd gr gm
Dear Carol,
There is a story in my family of two little girls who were raised in my great grandfather, Nathan Hymiller and his wife Elizabeth Ann Warner Hymiller's home. They were Elsie I Naill born 1893 and Elizabeth M Naill born 1896.

So the story goes, their parents, I am told, were Sarah A Warner (1862-1949)(80822637), who was a sister to Elizabeth Ann Warner, and John May Naill (-1940) (80822489). My grandmother spoke of the two girls often, and she said that Elizabeth was always called Bessie. Susannah Fisher Warner and John A Warner are the parents of Sarah A and Eliabeth Ann Warner.

But indeed you are correct Sarah Naill did marry John Hape SR. This Sarah (1803-1889)is buried in (31548110)Georgia. John Hape SR (1798-1868)(31674652).

The Naills were well known in Maryland and are indeed related to the Georgia Naills.

I hope this helps to clear things up.

Best Wishes

William Harper

I found the cemetery records while searching for William Harper. I have access to the DAR records because I am a member. Those records show that William Harper and Mary Ingram also had a son named Wyatt Harper who married Ruth Choice. I suppose that explains why they are buried in the Choice Family Cemetery.

My search has been for the parents of John Peterson Harper. I believe William Harper is his brother. John P. Harper lived in Elbert County, Georgia and died there, but he was born in Dinwiddie County, VA.

If you are interested in corresponding, you can contact me at

I hope this helps in your research
