Biography

I was born in Bridgeport, Wise, Texas on October 25, 1956.I am the daughter of James Garrett and Arvella Brawley. [1]

My love of genealogy started when my grandmother passed away. I wanted a way to honor her and make sure that she would always be remembered by her descendants. Equally important to me was my grandfather who had passed several years before her so I started my research into both lines with a realization that not all family trees have accurate information and that they were being repeatedly copied from one person to the next without a clue that the information was not correct. This only solidified with me the importance of actual sources to confirm what we do or do not know to be true. While we may not find all our answers, it is my belief that we can at least lay a factual foundation for those who come after us.[2]

DNA

My maternal mother, Arvella Brawley has taken autosomal DNA tests at 23andme and at Ancestry along with me, Sharon Garrett Glover. We share 3457 cm's along 28 chromosomes which confirms our biological relationship as mother and daughter.

Maternal relationship is confirmed by an autosomal GEDmatch comparison between Sharon (Garrett) Glover , GEDmatch kit # M826829, and Herman Brawley, GEDmatch kit # UC7944954, her uncle. Their most-recent common ancestors are Earnest Brawley and Hazel Norton, the grandparents of Sharon (Garrett) Glover and parents of Herman Brawley. Predicted relationship from GEDmatch: Uncle and Niece, based on sharing 1666.1 cM across 58 segments.

Paternal relationship is confirmed by an autosomal GEDmatch comparison between Sharon (Garrett) Glover , GEDmatch kit # M826829, and Brenda Carson, GEDmatch kit # A624429, her 2nd cousin 1x removed. Their most-recent common ancestors are William Garrett and Elizabeth Newman, the great grandparents of Sharon (Garrett) Glover and great great grandparents of Brenda Carson. Predicted relationship from GEDmatch: 2nd cousins once removed, based on sharing 90.1 cM across 5 segments.

Hi Sharon,

I sent you a check-in message a week -10 days ago about the US Southern Colonies Project to ask you about your continued involvement but have not yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project?

If I don’t hear from you by the same time next week I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things but you’re most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Hoping to hear from you,

Best wishes,

Yes I am still interested. I actively work on profiles monthly.

Hi, Sharon!

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!

Hello Sharon,

I just sent you a message. We have quite a bit in common. The relationship finder shows us as cousins, and it looks pretty good, plus our DNA matches at a little over 6cM. Hope to hear back. Thanks, Donny!

Good morning. Exit 43 on I-26 in Tennessee is an area known as Temple Hill and where Granny Lewis Creek flows into the South Indian Creek which is where the William Lewis Massacre took place in 1793. In the book "In the Shadow of Big Bald" by Pat Alderman, the creek is named after the kidnapped daughter of William Lewis who was eventually returned. This would be Mary (Lewis) Rigby https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Lewis-34471.

I live about 7 miles from there the way the crow flies in a mountain community named Wold Laurel and we also have a road named Granny Lewis Ln, but no one seems to know the origin of the name. Any evidence within your notes that that they are the same. My skepticism is based on the historical title of Granny typically goes with a name that sticks and that would more likely make her Granny Rigby instead of Lewis.

Thanks, Tim Carrigan

William Elgate, Jr. and Sarah Keene

The Byrd samples show DNA matches with descendants of William Elgate Jr. and Sarah Keene of Somerset (now Wicomico) Co., likely through their daughter Sarah Elgate who was known to be the wife of Thomas Byrd.

Hi Sharon,

I sent you a message a week ago to let you know about the exciting changes in the US Southern Colonies Project to ask you about your continued involvement but have no yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project? If so, which team(s) would you like to be on and please can you private message me with your e-mail address so I can get you added to the project’s Google Group?

If I don’t hear from you by the same time next week I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things but you’d be most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address. I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders and are in the Google Group.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins. We’re really excited for the future of the project and hope that you decide to be a part of it with us moving forwards.

Sharon, FYI, I wrote to one leader of Native Americans, who is cutting back on activity. Then wrote to the other leader who is on vacation as well as the Project Coordinator. So we have to wait.. I told them to let you know re: the name of the wife of Mankins.

Thanks for your patience.

Sharon, Lynette Jester, coordinator for Arkansas does not currently have a sticker for you to put on

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Mankins-10

So find the S Pioneers sticker for ancestors that looks most applicable for now.

Hi Sharon,

for https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Mankins-10

I would put a Southern_Pioneers sticker on the profile (not the one you have on your page) but one for people during that time. Does not have to be related to you.

And I would put Arkansas sticker as he lived there 30 years in addition to living many places. I have written to the Coordinator for Arkansas, and am waiting for her reply. On that page there is only the template box. I will post again when I know the fullest answer. You can put 3 stickers if needed.
