12/23/02 I am seeking information on Charles F. Sporman Jr., who was the
son of Dr. Mac Price Sporman and Ina Hearn of Headland, Alabama. Charles
F. Sporman Jr. married a girl named Margaret, I do not know what her
maiden name was. Their children were David and Alice Sporman. I believe
that Charles Frederick Sporman may have moved to Floyd County Georgia
from Henry County Alabama. That is how his children were in Rome
Georgia. Also interested to know if there may have been a William
Andrews Sporman or at least his children that also relocated to Rome
- 06/08/02 I
am looking for information on Josiah Nations and family. Josiah was born
approx 1812 in SC. He was married and in the Cass Co., GA 1850 census,
it appears he is married to Leah and had the following children: Martha,
Delpha, Nancy, Pamela or Penniza, Elizabeth, James, Barry, Rachel,
George and Belzz. In the Floyd Cty 1870 census, it shows Fair Nation as
head of the household of these same children. I'm not sure about the
difference in names. Evidently Josiah had passed away. I believe there
are records showing that Josiah served in the Civil War and may have
been killed. I'm not sure. I want to know who James Nation married. I
believe he may be the father of Adolphus Nation, my husband's
grandfather. I would appreciate any help and information.
Weatherby - 02/19/01 I would like to correspond with anyone
researching the Hart family of Cherokee County, Al and Floyd County, Ga.
Charles Henry Hart was born 20 Sep 1884 in Cherokee; married Eula Hardin

children are Ethel, Hugh Don, Pearl, Burley, Charles Fletcher, and a
daughter who married Walter Garrison. Related families include Bishop,
Whistenant, Couey, Cowart, and Garrison. Charles Henry Hart's sister,
Mary Bell Hart Weatherby, was my grandmother.
- 01/27/97 I am seeking parents and exact birth place of Frederick
Thomas Griffin who married Amanda Swilling in Floyd County, GA on Dec.
28, 1858. They had two daughters, Olivia and Gertrude. Frederick served
in the Civil War and died in 1865, in Floyd Co. of "Disease". On every
record I find for him, he gives his birthplace as "SC". I know that his
wife Amanda came from near Anderson, SC. I believe he may have been from
the same area. Amanda's family (her father was James Swilling Jr.) moved
to Floyd County approximately 1850. I am guessing Frederick was from the
same area of South Carolina and may have followed Amanda to Georgia. I
cannot find him as a member of any family in Floyd County on the 1850
Census, so I am guessing he came after 1850 but before 1858. We came to
Rome last fall to research this family and the Morris family. We hope to
return to Rome this spring for more research. My husband's mother, Ruth
Morris Brooks, is buried in Myrtle Hill Cemetery. She grew up in Rome
and attended Shorter College.

would like to contact anyone researching the Erasmus Bearden (b. 1800
SC) family who show up on the 1860 Floyd county census in dwelling
#1048, Mathis (?) Dist. I am wondering if the William listed in this
household, could be my gg grandfather, William BEARDEN (b. ca. 1838, d.
during civil war) who was born in either GA, SC, or TN. After I started
going through census stuff and old records, I found something to the
effect that he met his wife, Passey Ann Goode, in Atlanta (though her
family was from B'ham).
