Name: Beverly Hunter Cownover <txgalbc@aol.com>

My Ancestor Robert Hunter
From South Carolina
Born About 1806
Comments:
He was supposedly born in South Carolina with oldest brother born in North Carolina. He was found on 1830 census of Rabun County along with his oldest brother Richard Hunter. He stayed in Rabun Co. and relatives still live there.
Then supposedly he moved to Northwest Georgia with we think either land lottery or gold fever. We think that the Hunters in Summerville Georgia are kin to us by way of one of his children. No proof yet tho. Next time and only time we can find him again is on the 1860 cenus in Calhoun, Gordon Co., Georgia. Then he probably died before the 1870 census.

Jacob born Tennessee,married Mary Taylor, 1850 census shows they were in Chattooga, Georgia,children, D.C. male born 1835 in Tennessee. M. E. Beck, female born ca 1841 in Alabama. No other records found. Mary died Feb. 12, 1866 in flu epidemic, which supposedly wiped out all children, Jacob, and M. E. who had married a Morton at this time.
Only known survivor is M. E. 's daughter, Nancy Catherine Morton who was raised by a sister of M.E. Does anyone know where I can look for more information. Am supposing M. E. and her husband probably married in Chattooga.

The 1870 US Federal Census lists a family in the 870 District of Chattooga County that seems to match the people I am looking for.

Comments:
Anna R. Baxter, maiden name unknown. Sons: Sanford H. Baxter, b. 1858, married Rebecca Elizabeth HARDIN, b. 1855, John A. Baxter, Charly G.(Charlie)Baxter. I think Anna's maiden name was the same as her married name, I hope that is the case.
The 1880 Paulding County census shows Anna age 41, living with her son Sanford and his family. Also living with Sanford were his brother's John A. Baxter age 11 or 16 (looks like 16), and Charly G. Baxter age 5. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks

My Ancestor Isaac Brock
From NC
Born About 1804
Comments:
Isaac on 1850 Murray Co GA Census, may be the Isaac listed in 1840 Franklin Co GA Census and 1830 Buncombe Co NC census. May be related to Brocks of Gordon Co 1850. Daughter "Marm" Mariam Elizabeth Brock only child known to have stayed in area. She married William AP Hall. Other daughters not accounted for are Margaret b@1835 NC and Rebecca b@1838 GA. Can account for daughter Martha (m. Wm Miller) and sons, John T., Reuben Harrison, and Isaac N. who moved to AL and into TX. Would love to find these two girls. They may have married prior to Isaac's move to Alabama by 1860.

My Ancestor Jefferson (Jeff) Davis Duckworth
From Smyrna, Cobb Co, GA
Born About jr--1859 (very approx)
Comments:
Looking for ANY info on my ancestors:
Jefferson Davis DUCKWORTH b. abt 1859, d. 1931, Putnum Co., GA m. Ardella Switzer b. 1863, d. 1927 GA

children:
Charlotte b. 1898 GA
Hilda b. 1905 GA
Robert b. 1903 GA
Claud(e) b. 1891 GA
Paul Merrill b. 30 June 1906 GA (my gfather)
and 2 daughters who died young

I believe (unproven) that Jefferson Davis Duckworth's parents were Jefferson Duckworth and Ann Ro(d)gers

parents of Ardella Switzer: Augustus William Switzer and ?? Bennett

We believe that many of the Duckworths, including the 2 children who died early are buried in Marietta--the graveyard (in the 1960s )was in a rural area and the name used to be the Old Marietta Graveyard. Of course, I can't find it by this name...any ideas??

ANY INFO would be SO appreciated!! I am SO stuck here!!
Thanks!

Trying to find Cherokee links. My father always said we were on the rolls. I think I saw L. W. Cremeans on one of the rolls...I think it was Lindsey W. Cremeens from Macedonia, IL Allison's father was Wesley B. Cremeens, his father was Lindsey W. Cremeens, his father was Higgins Cremeens. I am still looking. I am also looking for Phillianne Waller's father and Mother...I believe he is John Waller from TN and is on the rolls ...and Delilah Mayfield both around 1850. I love your site. Shirley

My Ancestor Pleasant Eaton
From Lumpkin Co.
Born About 1825
Comments:
Can someone PLEASE help me find something about my G-G-Grandparents?
Pleasant EATON married Caroline EATON between 1847-1863 in Lumpkin Co. GA. They are listed on the Winston Co. AL 1870
census with four children: Nathan 17, James 12, Miney 8, and Mary 6. In 1880, they were in Wayne Co. TN with James Polk 16, and Minnie C. 13. Minnie Caroline was my G-Grandmother.
The census lists them as being born in GA, with all of the children born in AL.
The 1990 Wayne Co. census states that Caroline gave birth to 9 children, but the four listed in 1870 are all that I know of.
I have not been able to find out anything else about them. Please help me if you can.

One wonders whether there was a coal mine about but the original Coal mountain was the hill that 369 cuts thru as it crosses the Richard Neville Brige over 6 mile creek going east.
