My maternal grandmother was born Faustine Towns 

in or around Savannah, GA in 1920. We don't know much about the line though, because her parent's separated shortly after that.

FYI...we are now officially 7th cousins.  :D I went ahead and connected mine up the line. I'd been meaning to do it but hadn't gotten around to it. You gave me a reason! Do you have DNA results? I'd love to compare and see if we share any! I have a LOT of Towns/Spann DNA. I'm matching people all over the US.

PS: I'm a Towns descendant as well. I've traced my Towns roots back to North Carolina, to a David Towns (1749-1794 ish) (James David Towns>Richard Towns>William Hardy Towns>William Carroll Towns>Mary Anne Towns (my 2x ggm, married a Spann - our Towns line ended there)

Hi Karen,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, here are a few more features you may find useful:

  • If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.
  • Unfortunately, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving these situations.

If you have questions, feel free to post them on my profile page or send me a private message.
