My maternal family line. Descendant of Johnson C. Towns (1819-1905 Telfair County, Georgia), son of Gideon Towns 1790-1860. I am particularly interested in proving/disproving that Governor Towns is a cousin to my grandfather, Arthur Jackson Towns.
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.
Hi Leah, I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. It looks like you have joined the One Name Studies Project, so you're all set! Let me know if I can help you find anything else you might need. Welcome aboard!
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)
