Brandi Fields Jessie
Fields is an ancestor of mine through my father's side of the family. I
read the articles from the Blairsville Herald (1902 edition) on the "
Our Southern AKINS" home page. I am hoping that someone can give me
more info on Jessie's parents so that I can trace the family back even
further. I know that they are from Ireland and that Jessie was born in
Pendleton District (now Pickens, Co) SC on June 12, 1812. Anything on
family would be helpful. Thanks!
Jamie Crump Brandi, Have you talked with a lady named Patty Davis
Everett? She lives in Blairsville and is a Fields descendant. I worked
with her on the Union County Heritage book and she seemed to have a lot
of info on the Fields line. I don't have contact info for her at the
but my folks are still in Blairsville so I could get it for you if you
haven't talked with her already.
B CANTRELL listed on the 1850 census, household# 1059. According to
records, Thomas had a son Thomas Bryant Cantrell born Jan 14, 1846.
this son is not shown on the census record. Also, I notice in marriage
records Thomas married an 18 yr old Eliza L CHASTAIN Oct 24 1849. Was
elder Thomas md before? Can anyone explain this? Who is the mother of
younger Thomas Bryant Cantrell? My family history indicates he was born
to locate information on the family of James Herrin BARNES, who was in
Union Co. census in 1850. Any information would be appreciated.

THOMPSON, was she the woman in 1870 Fannin Co. called "Lydda"
in HH Samuel STANLEY? (5) Eliz. LONG THOMPSON, did she remarry John
and if so where is she in 1880? (6) James M. THOMPSON was said to marry
either Sarah LEATHERWOOD or Sarah SHELTON, I did find a James THOMPSON
marraige in one of the surround. counties to Sarah SHELTON, but can not
be sure he is the right one, as he was barely out of his teens then
young to be married). Also, found Jimmie THOMPSON md. 1861 Sarah McCAY,
also very young if this is him, as he was born @1848. (7) Louada Ann
hh in 1870, next to mom, were the children hers? or her mom's? Louada

too? I have alot of unsolved pieces of this puzzle, been working on it
for years and believe someone out there knows my family, or some of
people. Please help if you have data.

Benjamin Parks, Sr. born March 25, 1746 left this Birth Record of
family. The pages are titled "Family Register". The Bible belongs
to Lois Humiston of Mancos, Colorado. Her niece, Charlotte Baxstrom,
of Mancos, CO, indicated that the Bible was passed down from Benjamin
Flemmon, to Joseph E. Parks, to Emma (daughter of Joseph E.), and
to Lois (daughter of Emma). She indicated that it was very old and
were pages missing. She could find no date. However, from a fly leaf of
the New Testament section of the Bible, there was enough information
with the help of the American Bible Society in New York, they indicated
it was printed and published by Henry C. Sleight: New York in 1828.

Land. It appears thru some
research on my part that the LAND Family migrated from their original
settlement area of Virginia in the mid to late 1600's to Haywood County
North Carolina and then directly across the NC/Tenn. border to Blount
County Tenn. From that point many of the Land Family members came into
Union County Georgia and then into Gilmer County and finally settled in
today's present Cherokee County Georgia. Do you have any information regarding any
Land people in the Union County area from approx. 1700 to 1858? Any
information will be greatly appreciated...

Chappel. Can anyone help me? I am
trying to find out if my ancestors are Cherokee Indian. I am trying to
follow up on my great grand mother Florence Ellen Dockery who was born
in Union County, GA in 1874. I started off
by contacting Mariia Keasler in Cherokee County, NC where my
grandfather was born and she provided the following information: Marilia
did find the birth certificate
on my grandfather, Mose Chappel in Cherokee County NC. He was born in
Cherokee County on April 13, 1909. My great grandfather was William
Henry Chappel, born in Yatkin (which I believe is actually Yadkin), NC
in 1879. My great grandmother was Florence Ellen Dockery, born in Union
County, GA in 1874. There are no other records there; however, with
this information I should be able to trace my family through Yatkin
(Yadkin), NC and Union County, GA. Union Countywhich is located in
Blairsville, Georgia. We looked for a marriage certificate for
William and Florence, but were unsuccessful due to not knowing the date
of marriage. They may have also been married in another county or
state. I talked to the woman at the Yadkin County, North Carolina
Register of Deeds ( 336) 679-4225 on 7/11/08. She told me that they
only started keeping birth records in 1913. She looked in the
birth and the marriage index records they have and found the following
in the marriage records: William Chappel & Elizabeth Gross
were married in Yadkin County on November 2, 1854. They could be William Henry Chappel ( my
great grandfather) s parents. The timing would be correct.
Doris. In 1837, what
information did anyone have to give to get married if they were
seventeen years of age?

They were born c. 1937 and 1935, respectively, and attended school in
Blairsville, GA, or at least, that is where they lived on or about 1957-58. If you could provide the
names of grade and high schools in existence from 1944 -1958, and
place where I might
have access to the school year books for that time, it would really be
appreciated. It is thought
that Flora finished the 11th grade, and Roy quit school in the 9th
grade. Any help in find them or parents/siblings, would be greatly
appreciated. Thank you for your help.

. Who was the Father of William Cook born 1785; married
Susannah Hill in Rutherford County NC; in Raburn -Habersham County GA
by 1820; in Union County GA before 1849; and died 1875 in Union County
am trying to locate where in Union County land lots 48 and 49, District
10, Section 1 are located. So far I have been unable to locate a map
that shows were this property is. I think the Duncan Cemetery is on
this land but I am not sure. Can you help? My ancestors are
DUNCANs and GILLESPIEs and my wife is from the BOWLING and PENLANDs.
John Goins. I am
researching my 2nd great grandfather. From what research I have done,
he seems to have moved from Pulaski County, KY, down to Georgia, during
the gold rush. I do not know whether he moved by himself, or with his
family (so far I cannot locate parents names). I do know he joined the
GA volunteers during the Mexican war (1846-1848), and his place of
enlistment is listed as Union County. On his pension application, he
stated that before the war, he was 'digging for gould' (his spelling
exactly). Therefore I suspect that he may have been located in
Union County and that is why he joined the war from that county.
Anyway, its a good place to start my search. Sorry for all the
details, but to the point, I wanted to ask you if you knew of, or could
recommend, any known sources of information for the years around the
Georgia Gold Rush. I know there were land lotteries, so I am looking to
see if I can find the family name listed with any of those (but I doubt
he had any land there, since he settled in TN after the war). I was
wondering if there may have bee any special census that took place,
that attempted to gather info on those that had come to the area to
search for gold. At this point, I am just trying to get started and
thought since you were familiar with the county, you may have some good
suggestions. My ancestors name was Gideon Myers. Thanks for any
MILLER was born in Georgia on May 23, 1824. It has been very difficult
to fiqure out who his parents were. There was a Zealot Miller living in
Lumpkin Co., Ga., in 1834 whose occupation was a miner. He was old
enough to be William's father, perhaps he was. They were both living in
the Frogtown district in 1850. I have not been able to connect them
together yet. William married Catherine Amy WATTS (dau. of

04/06/1915, his wife Mary Emma CHAPMAN B June 30 1863 D 11/06/1930

George N Rhodes B- 1900 D 09/05/1930
George N Rhodes was my grandfather, I have had no luck with the
research past his parents.
Ed Eller. I am looking
for any info on Nancy ALLEN who married Jacob ELLER in Rabun or Union
County abt 1830.
. I got some information once & figured it
to be erroneous, about my great great grandfather (Robert TRAMMELL)
Robert was born in SC on 12/29/1788. He married a girl named Mary, in
Union County Ga. Mary was born in 1808..I think they were married in
1828 or 1833 but not sure.. She was so much younger, I simply though it
to be the wrong Robert..Their children were Loretta (b 1835, in union
county), Jacob Lafayette (b1841, d 1923- My great grand father). Andrew
(b 1843) , Malcamby (b 1845) & Nancy (b 1847). All show Union
County. Can you tell me who I might call to get the marriage record ?
& possibly birth records of the children (if they were born
there)..?? Whoever I talked to, I sent her a picture of Jacob L
Trammell's sons. But, I discounted what she told me (by phone) about
the marriage, because it sounded like she had the wrong Robert, at the
time. It turns out, he married Mary, who was 20 years his junior.. I
have Robert's descendant (5 generations) & his tree back to the
1700s (& beyond), if you want them.. I just want to find his
marriage records (mostly).
. I suspect
that William M. STILES is my Great-great-grandfather who is
buried in Pollard Cemetery in Sevier County, Tennessee. If so, he lived
in the Kodak area of Sevier County until his death in June 9, 1907. I
have his date of birth as January 1838 in Arkequah, Union County,
Georgia. I have been looking for information on his wife also
from Union County, Lucinda Jane COOK. She completely eludes me. They
were married on May 8, 1859 in Union County.
Seeking information for:
SARAH L HOUSTON, born in Blairsville, Union
County, Georgia in May, 1850. Daughter of
JOHN G & MARTHA ELVIRA (nee Meadows)
HOUSTON. Married JOHN LEONIDAS CABE on July
15, 1866 in Polk, TN.
Can you help me find where my ancestor lived in Union County,
Georgia? I found him in the Georgia Property Tax Digests,
1793-1893. His name was James L. BAILEY. The list doesn't
give me much info to go on, but I hope you have access to more
records. He is in Union County in all the Census data for many
Nancy Dickens. My
is a descendant of Absalom, Thomas Francis, and Thomas Lafayette.
I know that he has Native American blood in his ancestry and that it
came through the Hooper line. I think Thomas Francis was married
to Cintha Alvinia Rogers and that she was probably Native
American. However, his family says that Thomas Lafayette Hooper
(“Fate”) was full-blooded Native American, which means that Thomas
Francis was maybe a Native American adopted by Absalom, Jr.? Have
you ever heard any “rumors” about this?
Donna Totten. I’m
trying to find out who Williamson Jones (married Elizabeth Jones)
parents are. He appears in Young Cane in the 1850’s. Everyone seems to
think it is John Jones & Lettice Melton Jones, however, I’m pretty
sure that is incorrect. If anyone has any other ideas I would love to
find out. Most seem to think he and wife are buried at the Old Jones
Cemetery as William S. Jones. I’m sure he is related to John Jones
& Lettice Melton, but maybe he is the son of a brother of John’s.
If you have resources for Union County and would like to
volunteer to help with look-ups, or if you want to request a look-up,
please e-mail me
