Doloros Britton Horne - 06/16/03 I am looking for descendants of Robert (Bob) Lance who lived near Rome Georgia in 1939. He moved from Buncombe Co., NC. Parents were Nancy and Thomas Lance. He had a twin sister named Mary.
Jacob L. Bateman III or Le - 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 Georgia.
Deborah Nation - 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.
Fran 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 in Cherokee 12 Jun 1912; and died 13 Nov 1968 in Floyd County. Known 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. 
RBrooks - 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.
