Bio and Links
I live in the North GA mountains and love it. My favorite pastime is roaming cemeteries and taking pics, not just for myself but for others.
Always excites me when it helps someone who is unable to get it themselves. Glad to help, and if you need transfers or anything, don't hesitate to ask. I'll be glad to help you any way I can. Feel free to use any of my photos, I share good!

My lines out of
Franklin County and Banks County are Kesler/Segars/Cheek/Norton. Barrow County, GA - Attaway/Peppers/Greeson/Cheek.

RE: Emma Peppers m. Ruben Fowler
That's an idea (about Gwinnett and Barrow) but I think they are listed as two separate cemeteries. No grave marker for Reuben there and the one in Barrow is obviously the right one for Reuben. I have seen cases where zealous genealogists placed markers where they should not be.

I am related to the Sellers through Joel Wood who married Mary Sellers, dau of Samuel Sellers and Eleanor DeWeese, of Tennessee. Samuel was my GGGG grandfather. Nothing further back than Samuel who died in 1839, possibly in Jefferson Co., Tenn. They resided in Monroe before moving back to Jefferson. Joel and Mary Sellers Wood moved to Carroll County and are both buried there.

The Wards go back to the Boyds through the Aderholds.

The Ayers connect to the Sellers through the Paynes. Fleming Payne married Eveline Ayers in Franklin county, GA. Their son, William Jasper Payne married Mary Ann (Polly) Wood (dau of Joel and Mary Sellers Wood) in Monroe County, Tenn. Their son, Joseph Joshua Payne, married Louisa Elizabeth Boyd, my great-grandmother. They lived in Carroll County. I have a huge tree on Rootsweb. User name judyk.

Emma Peppers is driving me nuts.

Emma Peppers m. Ruben Fowler
Pat, Thank you for all your great research on the Peppers. I have just spent hours tracking the family of James and Stiry Peppers because several of the family trees (I know, I know, but it was all I had to go on) have their daughter Emma,as the one who married Ruben Fowler (son of Reuben and Frances Johnson Fowler). But, thanks to all of your research on this family, I can rule her out. My next best candidate was a Susan E. Peppers, daughter of Kelly Peppers and Rhoda Sweat. Do you have any idea who the Emma Peppers could be who married Ruben? I have started a Fowlers of Georgia and The South Facebook group and one of our new members is from this family. One of Reuben and Emmas's children married into the Attaway family.

Also, I'm confused about the gravestone of Reuben (1827-1889) being here in Barrow County instead of at Appalachee in Gwinnett. I was almost sure Vicky had said he was in Gwinnett. Maybe one day that mystery will be cleared up.

Again, thanks for all the terrific info.

RE: Nails Creek Baptist Church Cemetery
I'm sorry for the mistaken message -- I realized as soon as I sent it that I was thinking of another cemetery but I wasn't able to retrieve it :(

RE: Message
It was about a month ago. When I tried to retrieve
it there was no message. I guess it was a mistake.
Do you do some Holcombe grave sites. I've seen your name on occasion.
