First I beg those of you who add memorials, do not add the full obituary from the newspaper. Sometimes there are things in there that are not correct, and your not suppose to be listing names of people who are alive. Second, please stop turning off all forms of communication for here. I understand that you get a lot of messages from FAG or people here. But when I legitimately need you to correct things on my family's memorial that you have very wrong and you have communication turned off, it really upsets me. I work hard to make sure information is correct and when I can't get you to correct what you have, it makes all my efforts wasteful AND it gives someone the wrong information.|
I started doing genealogy research to find out about my grandfather's family. They were from Tattnall County, his father originally from South Carolina or North Carolina. When he was three his mother, Daisy Voila McDonald Bratcher left him, his brother's and his father. His father was in his 80's and not able to care for the younger boys so he had them placed with different people. My grand father, Curtis "Shorty" Bratcher, was placed with a woman he called Aunt Sweet. His brother who were closest in age to him, Hershall "Tinker", was placed with their maternal uncle. The older boys stayed with their father, Daniel A. Bratcher. My grandfather only lasted a few years with his Aunt Sweet as she was much older and could not raise a rambunctious boy. At this time he was placed in the children's home in Appling County. This is where he made his home but traveled back to visit Aunt Sweet until her passing. In the later 80's a couple of his brothers tacked him down. There is where what information we do have has come from. But their father never shared with them any information about his life before marrying their mother. So thus why I am sharing my story here. Maybe one day someone will read it and be able to share with me more about my grandfathers family.
So I am now researching Bratcher, McDonald, Boone, Crosby, Kersey, Hand, Griffin, Hutcheson and any off shoots from them. I am glad to help with any research in Appling County.

Karen, I'm hoping that someone may be able to offer some information on Nancy Branch, daughter of Elias and Rachael (Baxley) Branch. I believe this Nancy to be my great-grandmother. She married John C. Johnson (from N. C.) on Sept. 8, 1878. I can't find any info on John, other than he served in the 29th Battalion of the Georgia Calvary. All four of the above are buried at Baxley Graveyard Friendship Church, Baxley, Appling Co., GA. To aid others, Rachael was the daughter of Wilson Baxley & Mary (Johnson) Baxley. They are also buried in the same cemetery. Mary Johnson was the daughter of Daniel Johnson and Rebecca (Love) Johnson. I also cannot find where Daniel and Rebecca are buried. I will appreciate any info. Thank you.
Charlotte (Johnson) Kelley

I have been documenting my home church also. I really enjoy doing the volunteer work and it also helps me with my tree on ancestry. Thanks again for your help. One of the photos you took (Leggett) is from my mothers side and her husband (Courson) is from my father's side. Isn't that weird!!
