Bio and Links
Bio Photo "In all of us, there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from.

Without this enriching knowledge, we are left with a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, without the sure knowledge of our provenance, this yearning yields to an emptiness, a vacuum and the most disquieting loneliness."

- Alex Haley, author of "Roots"

RE: James Martin
I referred to the incredible array of primary source material the late John Wise collected at his web site. How would you like me to rewrite the account of James Martin's birth?

Valdosta, Ga
Hey John, I am planning to visit Valdosta soon, and am wondering if you could possible lead me on what and where I should look..
I know I will visit the cemeteries, and possibly try to tour the old house, which is now a private residence.. but are there any records at the court house I should look for?
Do you think that old bible you spoke about is perhaps located there... Do you know of any still living relatives?
Was going to go on the Fourth of July, but have changed my mind, it's too hot for visiting graves now.
Since I don't know anything about Valdosta, thought maybe you might suggest a few things?

RE: Lucious B. Martin son of Stephen Martin
Hey John,
Good to hear back from you. I thought linking Lucious to his dad's page would be sufficient. Anyway, thanks for making the request.

I just got the supplemental back for Jasper Martin from the UDC. I finished Lucious yesterday and am working on adding McDuffie's now. In all I'll have 22 patriots (Grandfathers and Uncles) honored before I'm finished. That's a wonderful legacy, isn't it!

I'd love to see your Brooks tree. Possibly one or more of them served that I haven't counted?...

I appreciate the biography posted even though I don't know of a relationship to the Powell's but there are some intersections. I am trying to find a connection of Evan/Evin Pierson/Pearson/Person and Rachael Cannon. Rachael Cannon was first wife of Abraham Tate, related to Perryman Tate. All 3 of these families/person are listed in the bio.

Is the bio an excerpt from a larger document? if so, can I get access to it? Do you know of any other connections to Tate/Cannon/Pearson?
thanks again for the bio post.

Thank you so much for listing the grave of William Hunter. He is my G, G, G, Grandfather. I've been looking for him everywhere. Not that easy living in the UK though!

Once again, thank you!!!

Most likely he is one of unmarked graves in Bradberry Cemetery in edge of Clarke county GA. This was originally Jackson county GA but fell into Clarke when lines were redrawn. The cemetery is on land once owned by Bradberry family.

RE: Family Tree Online?
Hi John....I'm afraid I'm not very knowledgeable about DNA and my research isn't that extensive. I do have the beginnings of a family tree on It's under McLeod-Remerow Family Tree. I don't know of any ancestors or relatives in the SC area but I know some were in NC. Do you have a tree? Maybe I could take a look at it and see if any names sound familiar. If you would like to contact me directly, my email address is:

Look forward to hearing from you.
