Hi Sarah

Re Elizabeth (Thorn) Harriss (1785-1866): I put the county back in. It was formed in 1777. This GA county formation site is really handy. .

Hi Sarah,

I would like to add a contribution to the Laura Ann Lewis Scott page. She and her husband, Robert Lindsey Scott, were the parents of Ella Fisher (1844-1936), Claride Vernon Scott Robertson (1848-1931), and Robert Lindsey Scott (1852-1859). Claride Vernon Scott Robertson was my great-great grandmother. She married Joseph Archibald Robertson; their son, Samuel Chapman Robertson, married Ruby Gardner. They had one child, Martha Vernon Robertson Burgess. Martha married Paul David Burgess. My father, Howard Paul Burgess, is their son. Please let me know what other info I can share with you! Martha Cockrell

Hello, Sarah!

Thank you for all your efforts to recognize the potential merge between Clara Haralson (Browning-2416) and Clara Haralson (Browning-561) (I was notified 28 Aug 20) which I just processed (31 Aug 20). Great work, thanks so much!

Thank you for helping with the Wall merge.

You changed Benjamin Gratz Brown’s preferred name to Benjamin. That is incorrect. He’s in my family tree and he went by Gratz. Family letters show that and the elementary school named for him is Gratz Brown elementary. Please change it back. His daughter’s passport application also shows it as B Gratz (with a Lexington birthplace).

Thanks. Jennifer Brown Byrnes

Done. Thank you so much for letting me know.

Thank you for this marriage. Where did it occur and what is your source? My 3rd g-grandfather was William Gilliam. I know he had at least one son, William Harris Gilliam, who was probably born in Georgia about 1818.

Dear Sarah

I just read the hand written 1814 transcribed will of Akexander Walker. Comparing the letters in the Alexander Walker will, the middle initial of “beloved brother Capt William I. Walker” is an “I” - it matches perfectly with other I s the transcriber used. It does not match a G or a J. from the transcriber. I would guess this I. might be one of the Isham Walker family in SC. The final administrator William A Walker is probably Alexander’s son William because his son would be 14 years older than when the will was written. I would guess the A. could possibly stand for his father Alexander. Or another favorite A name in this family. Susan Aldridge (i have about 50 blogs on mostly southern families- some are just started but most are complete-

Can you please add the source for the marriage information you added to

Hi! Hypatia Harris-36821 is one of the profiles I created for the Connect-a-Thon and I'll be orphaning it next week. Would you like to be her profile manager?

Thanks you for the edit/message for Wingfield-43. If you'll send a trusted list request, I'll add you as a profile manager. I think I might be a descendant... possible grandchild of Thomas & Judith being father John of my Zachariah Dixon (see John's profile).

Cheers, Liz

Hi, can you give me the link or source for the will, here is your message to me, and thank you:

I found the will for John Blunt Turner. It was recorded in 1809, Greensville Co., VA. Fortunately, it names his brothers Simon, Sugars, and Thomas so that John Blunt Turner can be identified as the son of John Turner & Priscilla Blunt. Perhaps the John Blunt Turner (d. 1837, MS) of this profile belongs with the Turner/Blunt family, but is a later descendant.
