Bio and Links
Born: 1953

Husband: William Oscar Taylor Jr.

My husband and I were raised in Sylvania, Screven County, Georgia. We moved to Savannah, Georgia in 1972 due to my husband's job. We raised three children in Chatham County, Georgia and have six grand children.

I am researching all branches of my family tree and my husband's tree. There is quite a lot of branches to research primarily in Georgia. Some of the branches include:

Beard, Bazemore, Lariscy, Fries, Bragg, Counts, Edenfield, Taylor, Jenkins, Cuthbert

We often visit many of cemeteries in Screven County and surrounding counties. They are always a quite and peaceful places to visit.

Minnie Lee Capps Bazemore
Hi Lady,
Long time to correspond. Hope life is treating you well. Still researching family history,going to be life time project. Could you help me please. Minnie Lee Capps' headstone has Bazemore for last name. I cannot find where or who she married. I am discovering that Capps are connected to me and on my husband's side of family through our DNA. Of course, you know the Bazemore's are deep in the Mock side.

Hopeful to hear from you,

Joel T Jackson
I saw you left flowers on Joel T Jackson. He was apparently the father of an Annis or Alice Rebecca Jackson who married a John M Smoak and they had a daughter named Leila Emma Smoak. I guess she'd be my great great grandmother? (not sure 100) anyway there was ambiguity in my family "folklore" of Leila Smoak's ethnicity and was wondering if you knew anything of the jacksons heritage or just information? I was told that Leila Smoak was full blood Creek Native American which I could never understand so I started to research and Smoak is actually a German name and can be traced back to germany. I just wanted to clear up some stuff so was wondering your connection to joel t jackson? Thanks.

Inquiry on a memorial
Jessie, I saw that you posted flowers on the memorial for Warren Kelly Winskey. Did you know him? He was my dad's brother and I have been trying to find some relatives. My dad was Gordon Winskey and was born in Sylvania. The Winskey family plot is in cemetery in Screven County.

I don't have the information you're looking for, but John A. Edenfield is my great great grandfather. So we share a chromosome or two!

John Edenfield
Ms. Taylor, my records show that John Edenfield, 1829/30-1893 was brother to William, and son to Hiram and Mary Nix Edenfield. I am so happy to find someone who is also searching Edenfields, I am looking for William and John's brother James, I believe he is my Third great grandfather, but am unable to prove it. Do you have any info on him? he was born in Barnwell Sc, 1825, death unknown, family history has it that he was married to Mary Hammons/Hammonds circa 1850, and they had at least two children together, William was the oldest and is my second great grandfather. I am sorry, I digress, do you have any info on him?

thank you so much,

RE: Taylor
Thank you. Sometimes people post things even though they are not related and it can cause some confusion for families who are doing genealogy research. It was nice of you to do so. Thank you. Lucinda Anne Kirk Taylor was the 2nd wife of my great great grandfather Israel G. Taylor, and that is why I asked as, he had a son with his first wife that we have not been able to locate as well as he and his sister lived with someone while Israel went to fight during the Civil War and I am looking for that part of the family. Thanks again for your reply
