I am researching family going back to the early 1800's in Henry & Spalding Counties, Georgia (and even earlier). States of note are Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. If you find something of interest here, or if you find any long-lost relatives here, please let me know. Also, be sure to check back... these pages are continuously under revision. **DISCLAIMER! - As with most genealogical work, this work includes the elements of time, partial records, and human imperfections. Errors are always possible, so please do not take all of these findings, especially those older than 100 years, as absolute truth. Where possible, I will list sources for my information, and would welcome any questions, corrections, and suggestions you might have.

The easiest way to use this page is to click on the family surname you are interested in immediatedly below and you will see further information on that family. I am almost always adding information to this as time allows.
