One son of John McMichael of Jackson Butte County George, was the Rev William Griffin McMichael shown in the photo below and evidently well known in the State as a preacher and Mason, but since my direct lineage runs through another son, Griffin C McMichael, and his son John B. McMichael who went to Cass County Texas around 1850 on a Wagon Train, the primariy search now is for more on the Wagon Train from Jackson Georgia to Cass County Texas.

I am looking for the father of Daniel McKinnon born in GA in July 1858 who died in Hickory Head, Brooks Co., GA in 1908. Daniel was married to Eula Lee Virginia Quinn and she remarried Daniel Sinclair after Daniel McKinnon passed away. A family member said his father was a Dr. Tom Peter McKinnon but I can't find him anywhere nor do I have what county Daniel was born in. I have found reference to a Daniel or Buddy born to a Daniel A. (b. 1827 in NC) that settled in Stewart C. but  with this from word of mouth family info I want to be sure. Daniel and Eula's two sons had middle names of Dorough and Terrell so I thought maybe the Stewart co. would be right and there was a mention of possible family in Alabama. Thanks if can help me.

Hey everyone!  I am researching my family tree - Shepards/Shepherds in or around Upson County, Georgia as well as Blounts in Upson and Washington Counties.  If you are researching these people, too, I'd love to share information and hopefully learn more about the family!

I have come to a dead end. My 4th great grandfather was Asa Baily (Bayly) I located who I believe to be him and another Bayly  ( Shadrick Bayly ...spelled the same way) in Emanuel, Ga in 1820. Does anyone know anything about these men?  Thanks.

Burwell Hood (Avery Burwell Hood in the 1820 Wilkes County, GA Census), with his wife, Elizabeth (Moore) Hood, had five children. Of those five children, only two of them have been verified with sources from the available online Wilkes County references.

The verified children are:

Jason Paris Hood (b. 13 Sept 1814)
Almeda V. Hood (b. 1820)

There are two unverified male boys, and one unverified girl left.

Now, both boys were tentatively described in one GenFile User submission as:
Elzie (or E. D.) Hood
Lossen Hood

There is no reference to the other girl (might have been a stillbirth, or died young).

There is no record of an Elzie Hood being born around 1816 in Wilkes County, Georgia, where the family was residing. However, E. D. Hood started appearing in the 1840 Census, and by 1850, E. D. Hood was residing in Floyd County, Georgia with his wife, who is known by the name of Mary Crim (in one instance, Marie Graham) through their childrens' death certificates.

Does anyone have a reference book to births and marriages (other than what's online) that can identify this Elzie Hood, whether or not he is the son of Burwell Hood, which may or may not be his given name? However, he did marry between 1837-1840 to a Mary Crim (or Marie Graham) in or around Wilkes/Olgethorpe County.

Descendant family members (including myself) have been at this over the course of the last 30 years and haven't been able to crack it. It's taken me 13 years to build up the genealogical database (and yes, as a direct male descendant of this Elzie Hood, I was able to use my DNA and verify both Elize and Burwell are biologically related).

The reason for this inquiry is because this family line is a Revolutionary War family (although the family immigrated from England in 1683, this particular branch of Hoods originates from Castle Dunnington, Leicestershire, England), and for myself, it finishes a decades long project as a product of two distinct Revolutionary War families (my mother's side includes one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence).

We can't pull the data from the grave, because Elzie (as well as Burwell Hood) were buried in a private cemetery outside Daingerfield, Titus County, Texas and their gravestones are no longer there (now known as the Wakefield Cemetery).

So on behalf of all of us family members who have toiled three decades of work, is there someone who can find the birth and marriage record of Elzie Hood (or what his actual name is)? It would have been abt 1816, in Wilkes County, Georgia. The marriage might be in a different county within Georgia between 1837-1840.

This is Revolutionary War veterans Pvt. John William Hood and Capt. William Hood's lineage (William being John's father).

Thanks in advance! :)

No, afraid not.  I did check for newspaper articles, but did not find anything.  You might call and see if they'll look it up.   You might check with the county sheriff's office.  Sometimes they have someone working in their office that handles archives.  I have done a lot of research on homicides, etc. and sometimes the records are not there.  I'll check out a couple of other avenues and see if I can find something.

Hello! A Georgia archivist recently sent me this article about my great-great-grandfather, Dr. Edward Ramsey, the first African-American doctor in Troup County. Would love to find out if anyone is studying African-American history in Troup County or Coweta County, in particular any information that might relate to my other ancestor, Dr. John Henry Jordan, who was the first African-American doctor in Coweta County. Thank you!

I'm studying just over the border in LaGrange though my family seemed to have wandered into Troup a few times as they moved about.

I have come to a deadend in my search for my great-great grandparents.  My grandfather was James Thomas Williams, born in Elbert county, Georgia in 1829.  If anyone has information on his family, I would appreciate it greatly.  My grandfather married Priscilla Mauldin in Mississippi in 1848 and had 11 children, one being my father, Rudy Williams.
