Murray County GA Military Civil War Roster Co B 39th Regiment Gerhardt, Alexander -- Private - March 10, 1862. Killed at Missionary Ridge, Tennessee November 25, 1863. Is there a possibility that this was the Dr. Alexander Gerhardt who provided Thomas Mayo Brewer (1814-1880) a large amount of information on the birds of Northwest Georgia? Brewer lists his Gerhardt correspondent as from Whitfield County and from Varnell's Station. Dr. Gerhardt obviously was a very serious ornithologist. I am carrying out research for a biography of Dr. Brewer and am hoping to get more information on Dr. Gerhardt. I would be really lucky if I were to find letters to Gerhardt from Brewer. The dates of Gerhardt's bird observations that Brewer mentioned were 1858, 1859, and 1860. Nothing after the Civil War. In 1874 when Brewer was writing it was "the late Dr. Gerhardt." Can you provide any help in pinpointing Dr. Gerhardt?

Rick McKinney - 02/05/02
I need any and all history on the Mt. Aventine area of rome and the surrounding area from the South Broad bridge to South Main St. We live on Mt Aventine
and have only recently learned of our city leaders(?) possible plans for destroying the remaining victorian homes and historic buildings on south broad, all
in the name of "cleaning Up" the area. We have learned that Darlington School power people have become unhappy with this area since it is the main approach
to their school. While their area is protected by money, there is no one except concerned neighbors of this area to protect it. We are planning to go to a
meeting that the city is having 2 days before they announce their already decided plans for our neighborhood to present our concerns. We fear that as it has
been so many times in Rome's recent past, our voices will be lost to the commissioners who rely heavily on darlington's money base. We need historic
information to possibly delay their destructive plans and hopefully give us time to present any information we can find to the national historic preservation
socieity. I am aware of a little of the history of a battle near Myrtle Hill during the civil war, but we need the history of the buildings that have
recently been condemed by the city and any of the old victorian homes that remain standing on South Broad. If you know where we can search for this, or
someone who is a local expert, could you please advise me? Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. We are planning another neighborhood
meeting on the 15th of this month, and anyone with information or who wants to assist us with our quest would be most welcome.

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,
