RE: Helton/Hilton Family
My husband is from Tifton, GA and most of his family were from Georgia. The Whitfield Co.,GA area and all around. His grandfather is Oswin whose father is Johnny whose father is Richard whose father is unknown whose father was a Cherokee Indian Chief from N.C. I can get back to the Richard but then hit a stumbling block but I really haven't done a lot of research on this line yet. His Grandfather Oswin, for some reason or another changed their last name to Hilton???? All the rest are Helton's. The same thing happened to me, my grandfather on my father's side changed the spelling of their last name.
I am very much interested in what you may have. Maybe we can piece the puzzle together!!! Thanks

Hi .I just happened to come across the name Whitlock that you are related to. I am related to Whitelock .. Catherine Whitelock was my grandmother. There were some family that migrated to Illinois and Utah...All in the same family even tho spelled with an "e".I'm sure you are familiar with the Whitlock ancestry on the internet. I am #57.I would like to communicate with you if you are interested and let me know which number you are.

RE: John Willmore #118162518
Sorry, Gail for taking so long to get back with you, but I have been taken away from the project of posting grave in Find A Grave due to other job related duties, as a genealogy library assistant. I started positng the records for Illinois from The Saga of Soutern Illinois periodical when I realized that they were about to be weeded,after searching and seeing that a lot of the graves were not listed in Find A Grave, and not many libraries have the books.
On page 38 of the "Saga of Southern Illinois" the New Hope Cemetery chartered June 3, 1891 is located in Jefferson Co., four miles east of Route 37 on the Jefferson/Frankling Co. line, then one mile north. The paragraph mentions that the cemeter is now being called The Hope Cemetery. The records were not submitted by me but by Marie Greenwood before 1975. There is also a Death list for Hope Cemetery with other Willmore names,among other names. The two list cover over 15 pages. I will be glad to transfer anything to you. Thank you for your understanding.

Sorry. The memorial for John Willmore in New Hope Cemetery is not mine so I cannot delete it. I did add yours to Sarah's memorial per the "edit" request.
