I live in Jacksonville Florida. Since I retired, my wife and I have spent quite a bit of time compiling family tree info. Just a hobby, but fun. I am related to the Griffis family from Blackshear, Ga area and my wife is from the Carter families around Appling, Ga
RE: Looking for Family I found a 5 year old boy Jack Nettles living with a Laura Griffis on one of the census and she had been married to a William Danial Griffis and the young boy is listed as a nephew. I am trying to find out if he is my granddad. But also on my grandmothers death cert. her mother was listed as a Mary Jane Griffis married to an Joseph Oscar Evans.
Looking for Family I am looking for some family members and I know they are from the Griffis line maybe both sides lol My families are Hand, Norris, Griffis, Evans, on my dads side if you can help please do! I am on facebook under Amber Norris Lee or my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for all the info you have on your memorials also!
RE: Oliver Bennett Braddy & Sarah Braddy It seems I've responded to you about this before, but can't be sure. Sarah Ann Braddy was born to Sarah Ann Mosley McCullough--her husband, Joseph McCullough had died in the WBTS in 1862. Oliver Bennett Braddy's first wife, Elizabeth Smith Braddy, had also died about that same time. He fathered Sarah Ann. My husband is a great-great-grandson of O.B. Braddy and the family knows the story. Apparently, the mother died in the 1870s. Sarah Ann went to live with her father and his second wife, Martha Dickerson Turner Braddy.
