I'm trying to find information regarding my paternal gggmother. Her name was Nancy E. Robinson, her maiden name was
reported to be Mathis. She was born in Georgia, 9/29/1822 and died 7/10/1867. She was buried near her home in Bradley
county, just north of Red Clay. The cemetery is the Lebanon Church Cemetery. She was married to John Robinson, and had 10
children. She and John lived in South Bradley County from at least 1840 until her death in 1867. My ggfather's death
certificate showed that his mother (Nancy) was born in Georgia, and my guess is that it was Whitfield County. Do you have
access to documents or information that we could research to find info about Nancy Mathis? Any assistance that you could
render would be immensely appreciated.

Researching my natural Father's Ancestry. This is my Lineage so far I was born Susan Ingrid Dianne Hutchens July 29, 1949
in Rome, Georgia. My parents were James Riley Hutchens born June 20, 1927 in Taylorsville, Bartow, Ga., son of Jesse
Hutchens and Beaulah Sheppard per his SSCard. When James was 15 years old he lived in Rome Ga on 12 Buffington Rd. Now in
the 1920 Census I have found Arthur Hutchens aged 65 born in Georgia born abt 1855. His wife Margaret aged 54 born in South
Carolina born about 1863/1864 their children were Jesse aged 18 yrs born in Ga born about 1902, Ida aged 15 yrs born in Ga
born about 1905, Robert aged 8 yrs. born in Ga born about 1912. My mother was Shirley Sharp which is a fictious name she
used on her Marriage and my birth certificate, it took us years before our mother told us her real name was Shirley
Hoflinger, as my dad was overseas when he met my mother. My mother was pregnant with me, and went to Taylorsville, or Rome,
I'm not sure, but I was born in Rome. I do know that my grandfather had a farm. I am anxious to find out if I have cousins,
as there are 6 children, and when my parents divorced, my mother gave me up for adoption when I was 6 years old. I saw my
father last in 1963 I was 14 yrs. and he had remarried, and I believe the woman named Sara Holcomb who is now deceased
might have had children. My father passed away in March 4, 1985 in Atlanta, Georgia and is buried at the Sylvester Cemetery,
