Peter Towns (1770-<1850) and his wife, Elizabeth, moved from Greenville, S.C., to Pocataligo, Madison County, Ga., sometime between 1836-1840. On the 1840 census, Elizabeth was HOH and a male in the home to be Peter's age. Their last known child, Sarah Jane Towns, was born 1836 in S.C. By 1850, Elizabeth Towns was in Clarke County, Ga., with daughters Permelia Frances (Towns) Towns (25), and Sarah J. Towns (14) in her home. Permelia Frances was the widow of John W. Towns who was by then deceased.

Does anyone have any information on Peter Towns or John W. Towns in either Madison or Clarke Counties?Any help will be appreciated.

Appling County area: Looking for information on the surname Summerall. Currently working of a David (W?) Summerall b. 2-3-1834 d. 5-15-1891 and his wife Jane (Carter) b. 3-24-1848 d. 7-25-1920 according to their grave markers. They were the parents of Susan Veloria Summerall who married John P.  Milton/Melton. David was in the household of Jesse Summerall b @ 1810 GA and Susan Summerall, her maiden name is not known, b. @ 1795 during the 1850 and 60 census. However, I found a Administrator sale for David Summerall late of said county,  from the Inferior Court of Appling Co. Ga, selling a lot of land in Dooly Co. GA for the benefit of heirs, Adm'r Jesse Summerall. I believe the deceased David (Sr*) was the brother, cousin etc of Jesse and he, Jessie, reared David (Jr.*) I have saw the index, name of the deceased (?), to a will but I would love to see a copy of it.

I am looking for information on my great grandparents, James Dunston Blackwell(1860-1903) and Mary Lou McCurley  Blackwell (1870-1966) of Hartwell Ga. I have reached a dead end finding information about their marriage (about 1885) and James' death. I know where they are buried and I did find a short newspaper article (Dalton Ga ) that he had been found dead in his cotton warehouse after he had been missing from Hartwell for several days.Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

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!

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.

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.
