George Washington "G.W." Mills was my great-great-grandfather. His first wife was Mary I. Vereen & they had 5 children (half siblings to my great-grandfather) On the Charles Pinckney Mills (1874-1957) his mother is not listed.
His two brothers are John George Washington Mills (1867-1945) and Benjamin Franklin Mills (1859-1946)
There are 2 sisters that I have not finished checking out but are not listed under his 2nd wife Elizabeth Jenrette Lovell Mills (1852-1938) as step children.

Thanks for your work!

Mr. Ray,
Please disregard my request concerning Ebenezer Judson Folsom's mother. I have just noticed that his mother was Elizabeth Ann (Smith) McIntyre Folsom, Penny G. Folsom's first wife and not Laura Virginia Folsom who was his second wife after Elizabeth died. I will see if I can find Elizabeth's memorial. Thank you for your time.

RE: Buell Horn
Thank you for moving his memorial to the correct cemetery. I also found the grave of his 5 year old son Mitchel. I enjoyed my trip to Horn's cemetery on the Old Landing Road in Lee County.
