Bio and Links
I've been doing genealogy research for about 35 years. I started before you could turn on your computer and do the research from your home. While I enjoy the convenience of using the internet to do research, I still enjoy the more "hands on" approach. I've taken many trips over the years to courthouses, cemeteries, to visit elderly family members, etc. along the way. For me, the online research just doesn't bring the same satisfaction that I feel when I am able to go dig up the information in person. I've enjoyed meeting cousins that I never knew I had, and I've also been able to reconnect with family members that I've lost contact with over the years. This has become a great hobby, and I've enjoyed learning all the interesting stories, both good and bad, about my family history. I hope I have and am playing some small part in getting younger members of my family interested in what came before them.

I'm happy to share whatever information that I have. Feel free to use the grave photos that I've added without contacting me. I've uploaded them for your use. All I ask is that you list where you got the photo along with the cemetery, city, state so others can find the grave if they wish to visit it. I'm happy to take photos of graves in my area for other people and upload them to memorials here. I think of it as a kind of payment for those who have been kind enough to get photos for me. I try to take the kind of photos that I would like to have....well focused, as readable as possible, and a good angle.

As for the more PERSONAL PHOTOS, I'd like to be contacted before anyone adds them to another website or uses them in any other way. I love sharing, but I also like to know where and how my research and/or personal family photos will be used, and I like to know that credit is given to the proper individual(s) if my research or photos are used by others. I feel it's extremely important that future researchers be able to get to original sources of pictures and other documents the same way that I and others did. It's very frustrating to see a supposed photo of someone on the internet, but the person posting the photo doesn't have the original, can't tell you where the original is or any other information about it, and doesn't even know for sure that the photo is correctly identified.

I'm happy to transfer any memorials that don't belong to my family. Just let me know if I am managing a memorial which is of your family member, and I'll get it transferred to you ASAP if I'm not related. I like to see memorials in the hands of family or friends who can add to the memorial and make it the best it can be.

Jerusha White Chandler
Hi Sabrina, thanks for updating Jerusha dates. I hating looking at the unknown blanks under her name so I got busy when I could. Maybe this will help us or somebody down the road in researching and finding her. Never heard anything about Waco but anything is possible at this point.
You must come in on the Charity King side.
Some of us do know that Jerusha was a founding member of the Poplar Springs Primitive Baptist Church, in Smithfield, Georgia, in 1840.
Many of our Chandler, etc., relatives where members here and many are buried in their cemetery as you well know. Actually started the church in a log cabin. Also, many are not buried here it appears. Many persons think they are buried here but there are no records to prove it. We do know that many left to join other churches and it does not make sense to me that they would be buried there. Maybe a few but not the majority in my opinion. And if buried there why is it not in the records?
Anyway, many of our kin have searched the records of many of these churches already and have come up empty. The problem is many of these records are sparse or non-existing. There might be something out there to tell us but I am afraid they might not exist any longer. Waco, Primitive Baptist Church records need to be checked if not already. I never give up but I am a realist and the lack of proof with many of these people has been a problem for many years. The facts seem to indicate that the records have been lost or destroyed over the years. I hope that I am wrong. Many of Ambrose`s relatives burial places, and his, seem to be lost.
This is so sad but maybe one day some proof will be found.
Please stay in touch and let me know if you find anything else. I will do the same.
Some of us cousins are presently helping restore the Strong Cemetery in Coweta County. Another branch that married into the Chandler`s.
If you don`t beat me to it I will eventually write a bio. for Jerusha and submit it to you for Find A Grave. It may help us learn more from somebody else one day. If you have any ideas you want to share, I will be traveling to this part of Georgia several times in the coming years. I would be glad to try and track anything down if possible. Take care, cousin Eli Chandler

RE: Harry Hill and Family
You're quite welcome. I had seen the articles before, but was reluctant to them because I've had family members complain about articles I've included on the memorials. If a family member comes along and prefers the articles are not included I will respect their decision and remove them. Very tragic deaths, especially the children! :(

Timmie Horner and Reece Horner are my great- grandparents. I believe I am one of the last living descendants to them. If you have any information on them I would like to know so that I can pass it on to my kids and one day grand kids.

Thank You,
Tiffany Horner

Jerusha White Chandler(1799-10/26/1894
Hi Sabrina, thanks for putting my 3rd Great aunt on Find A Grave. I had refrained from putting relatives on Find A Grave that nobody really knew where they are buried but I have joined the crowd now. As long as one does not get carried away and put hundreds on here I have no problem with this personally. How else are we going to find them one day if the word is not out there and a place for their memory is not maintained. She and Ambrose are probably in Carroll County, Georgia but we may never know for sure.
I like your bio. and I can relate to the old days of researching like many of us used to do. I do miss that and still try to visit establishments when I can.
I don`t know if you are related to Jerusha or not but I have been reading your Find A Grave posts for a while now and we visit many of the same places. I have seen your comments on several of my maintained graves and we might be distantly related but I cannot remember right now. Anyway, in researching Jerusha a census record from 1850 lists her at fifty years old so she would have been born in 1799 to 1800 if correct. You know how this goes as well. I am using 1799 for now. I also came across another source that stated she died on Oct. 26, 1894. She tried to get a pension from Ambrose`s Cherokee Indian removal service in 1838 but he was not on the reported rolls of the company she thought he served in. Anyway, she died before the pension was figured out and it was reported as such to the authorities. I will try and use the edit button if this is easier for you. If you are not related I would like to maintain the posting on her and can add many other facts from the family. Much easier to do when you are the maintainer and can go back and add or take away at your own time. I am sure you understand. I am not that great on computers. Take care and keep up the good work. If you are related and want to keep her I understand. I am related to all my posted persons.
Sincerely, Eli Chandler #48083256

RE: Myrtle Huie King
How nice to meet you! I never really knew Daddy's side of the family (the Kings). Charles and Myrtle moved to Stone Mountain, GA, and Daddy was born there. He left for WWII in the Pacific at 17 years old. After the war he went to Georgia Tech, married my Mom and then moved to Ohio and finally settled in Tennessee. I was actually born in Ohio while they were there and was teased by the entire family that I was born a Yankee. I'd get so mad - when I was little. Anyway, I'd be glad to look at your photographs. I have many old photos but really not so many of Grandfather Kings's. I don't remember an old "family" place or spending time with any of Daddy's Aunts or Uncles. At Grandmother's funeral I sat with I think brother John, or it was Cleveland. I think it was John. He was very feeble and looked so much like Charles, my Grandfather. I was drawn to him. This site is fascinating. I'm learning so much of the history and have wished a thousand times Daddy were still here so I could pepper him with questions. I will be sixty in March and live in Tennessee. When Grandfather died, they were living in Douglasville and then Grandmother moved to Bowdon to be near her family (the Huies). I was 9 when Grandfather King died and I loved him so much. He was a gentle soul. I remember sitting under his arm on a porch metal glider watching and counting the lightning and thunder waiting for the rain to move in. I always thought he looked like Abe Lincoln. I'd be glad to look at your photos and I'll ramble through mine and see if I come up with any of the Kings. I do have some I need to scan of Grandmother and Grandfather to upload. Thanks for reaching out! Kim

Myrtle Huie King
Hi. Myrtle Huie King 75090796 is my Grandmother. Her son, Percy Glenn King, was my father and she was the daughter of David Brainerd Huie of Bowdon. I have a lot of information and wondered if you could transfer the memorial to me? Are you a family member of the Huies or Kings? Charles A. King was my Grandfather. I'm new to Find A Grave and am enjoying all the information available to help with research. God bless for all you've done!
