Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Atlanta, raised, for the most part, in East Point, traveled the world with my Army officer husband, and now live in Newnan, Georgia. I have one daughter, six grandchildren, and one great-grandson.

I have researched my family for many years, wrote a genealogy column, "Finding Your Folks," for eight years, and now am nearing retirement from a nearing 30-year career in the newspaper business.

My ancestry is English, Scottish, Irish and French, as far as I have researched.

Paternal surnames are Fowler, Blake, Owen(s), Dorman, Norris, Kennedy or Kanady, Johnson, Pepper(s), Whaley, Vickers, Young, Strickland, Rogers, Jones, Sessoms, McNeely, Fincher, Perry, Rawls, Edmunds, Tatum, Grisham, Hicks, etc.

Maternal surnames are McWhorter, Payne, Wren, Boyd, Hopper, Stewart, Tucker, Wilson, Kinney, Wood(s), Ayers, Sellers, LeGuin, Toler, Thomasson or Thompson, Ward, Parks, Chamness, etc.

If you can add anything, or have a correction, to the Find-A-Grave sites I manage or contribute, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Nancy (Fincher) Tate & Elmina Jones Dorman
Hello Judy, I tried to send you an Email but it was rejected. I was just wondering if Nancy Tate's maiden name was Fincher and if her first husband was Henry Jones. Henry was my 3rd greatgrandfather and his children were Thomas Tuner Jones, William M. Jones, Patrick Jones & Amanda Jones Boiter. I also noticed that Elmina Jones Dorman was buried in the same cemetery that Nancy was buried in. Are there any relations there. Nancy #5838416 and Elmina #56916157. Thanks for your time and hope to hear from you soon. May God Bless and hope you're having a Blessed Day.

RE: Fred & Vivian Platt/Georgia
You are quite welcome Judy! Hopefully the Society will continue once they've got their bearings back!

RE: Fred & Vivian Platt/Georgia

I'm in Pennsylvania. I was helping the East Point Historical Society enter the records, so I think they are doing some work there.

RE: Fred & Vivian Platt/Georgia
Judy: No, I am not related - I was helping out the Historical Society and added multiple memorials to this cemetery for them. If you are related and would like to have their memorials, just send me an "edit" message from their individual memorials and I'll transfer to you.
