James Herrington, Emanuel Co., GA
Ms. Hebert,
I tried to send an email, but it bounced back as undeliverable. Here is the text:

I’m working on a project for a possible descendant of Ephraim Herrington, the father of this James Herrington. I have found a couple of inconsistencies in the data provided for him. I know that the memorial was originally put up by the Rigdills, so I’m copying them on this also.
The birth info for James H. Herrington is given as born 1805, Pitt Co., North Carolina. I just checked census records from 1850-1880. On each one, James was listed as born in Georgia, as were his wife Dicy and all his children. The birth date appears to be accurate. He is listed in the 1880 census mortality schedule as age 75 at death in September. The mortality schedule also indicates that he was born in Emanuel County, Georgia. In the column referring to the length of residence in the county, the entry is 75 years. This indicates that he had been a resident of Emanuel County all his life.
The death information is a year off. The headstone gives the year as 1880. The mortality schedule is for “persons who died during the year ending May 31, 1880.” A stamped note on the document says it was “Received July 21, 1880.” The death date given in his memorial is Sep 28, 1880. Since the mortality schedule is for those who died from May 31, 1879 to May 31, 1880, James must have died in September 1879.
That death date is corroborated by his will, available on FamilySearch here:
It goes from p102-106 in that book. This is definitely the correct James… He mentions wife Dicy and several of his sons. The will was written on 1 August 1870 and the estate entered probate in the January Term of 1880. So by January 1880, James had died. Along with the entry in the 1880 mortality schedule (available on Ancestry), this strongly suggests a death date of September 1879.
I hope this is helpful, and that you are able to at least add a note to the memorial.

Allen Reynolds
The Reynolds family
Hi Ms Hebert,

My name is Allen Reynolds. 3rd great grandson to Capt Abner Monroe Reynolds and 2nd great grandson to John Thomas Reynolds,(from Winder/Jackson/Walton county Ga and first great grandson to John Monroe Reynolds from Washington county Georgia.

I am just getting involved with finding family members on find a grave and saw your post for Mr eastern Reynolds from the Jackson county area. John Thomas came to florida after the civil war and his father was killed in 1862. All other Reynolds have been in Washington county since.

This is where my interest in your family comes in. Prior to their leaving for florida there were 2 original Reynolds brothers that began the settlement once called “Jug tavern” later to be known as Winder. They got land lotteries after the Indian wars. 3 counties came together at that point so it has made it very confusing. Walton, Jackson and Quinett counties. Jefferson county is one county over and I see Eastern Reynolds from Jackson county is your family. Can you tell me if he is related to Galant Reynolds or Thomas Reynolds from Georgia. That area is the highest concentration of Reynolds I’ve ever seen. Those two gentlemen were my 4th great grandfather and his brother. All of them in the next few generations had many children so it would be easy for Eastern to be related. I actually found one of John Thomas’s sisters moved to Dothan Ala and married a sherrif there back after the war. All the siblings that lived in Winder moved after the war. Their farm was destroyed and stock gone, father dead. I don’t think any of our family ever knew that. I wish I would have started this journey when I was younger and before my father passed.

Any information you can share would be much appreciated

Hall and Sumerlin...

Instance Hall (1800-1885 / Memorial# 42143793) and Drusilla Sellers (1804-1885 / Memorial# 73174743) were the parents of my 2nd great grandmother Eliza Hall (1834-Aft 1910 / Memorial# 1371837500). My 2nd great grandfather was Ebenezer J. (James?) Sumerlin (1829-1878 / Memorial# 134758529). I can track them back to the 1850 US Census for Appling Co Georgia, where they were living near the Halls. Their first child, Berrien, was only a month old. Ebenezer's birthplace was Georgia, according to his responses on all available documents. By the 1860 US Census, the Sumerlin family had gone to Texas. Post-1860 records, along with family knowledge, have been fairly easy to piece together his and Eliza's movements thereafter.

Thanks to you and some other diligent contributors, I'm slowly unraveling the trail of Halls, but, so, far, I keep coming up empty-handed (at least accurately) on pre-1850 Ebenezer J. Sumerlin and his Georgia kin.

Posting an inquiry here seemed like a good place to start, for possibly resolving the Sumerlin unknowns.

If anyone has photos of my Eliza Hall's family, (especially of Eliza), I'd be forever grateful to receive copies.

Many, many thanks,

Bird Mobley & Mary Ann Hall
I am researching information in the Mobley line right now and wondered if you know if Bird was definitely married to Mary Ann Hall? I found a census record with Bird and a Mary P in 1870 and Mary A died in 1867 so I wonder if the information is correct and if you have any idea of whether Bird married a Mary P after Mary A died? I would sure appreciate any information you could send. Thanks!

Family links
Hi Elizabeth. I'm jumped full into looking up my family ties about four months ago. My Father's family is from the Graham area. His paternal grand parents were Milton Homer Johnson and Addie Varnadore. His maternal grand parents were Morgan Lee Simmons and Alice Rentz.

I can give you more information, but I was wondering if were related at all since you list Johnson in your bio and you have a lot that you added from Zoar and that area. My father grew up not far from Zoar cemetery.

I can give you more info, but here is some of it.

Me -> Homer Lee Johnson (living) -> Edgar Allen Johnson -> Milton Homer Johnson -> Obediah Johnson -> Malcolm Johnson -> Daniel Johnson

Keep in mind that Obediah Johnson married Drucilla Hall who is a daughter of Instance Hall.

Another Johnson connection might be through my father's mother, but it is a long ways up:

Me ->Homer Lee Johnson (living)-> Gladys (Simmons) Johnson -> Alice (Rentz) Simmons -> Mary Ann (Spell) Rentz -> Margaret (Johnson) Spell

Margaret Johnson married Matthew Spell both are buried at Zoar with large head stones.

Youmans Family
Thank you so much for your offer to send more info. I am connected to the Youmans via Kesiah Blitch who married Charles Levi Youmans. Kesiah was my Great Grandmother's (Emma) sister. I'd like to know more about the other siblings, Charles P., Eugene and Vernon. And, about Adelle and Modell Youmans, twin daughters of Kesiah and Charles Levi Youmans. It will be easier to contact directly6 at pas47pap yahoo com. Thanks so much! Best regards, Ann

John J. Clark
Out of the hundreds of John J. Clark's listed n findagrave which one are you referring to?

It would help me to find the one your are talking about if you go to the memorial page and click the "Edit" button then select "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" and put the information you wish to add or have changed in the message box.

Otherwise, I don't have a clue which one you are referring to. The only John J. Clark I added was in Kettle Creek and there is no daughter listed.
