Bio and Links
Bio Photo Georgia (Decatur, and now Cherokee County) has been home for two thirds (most) of my life. Two sons, three granddaughters, and three grandsons, all of whom are Georgians.
An Amarillo, Texas native (and 10 yr. native of Fort Worth), and seven generations removed from Patrick and Margaret McCullough Phinney of Chester (District)County, SC, dating from 1786.
History at times surpasses genealogy as the greater interest. This site is a compilation of stories from individuals responsible for that history, and it never ceases to improve with each addition.
Paternal Lineage: Phinney, Crosser, Wright, McCullough
Maternal Lineage : Daniel, Newman, Talley, Magee

One of many favorite transcriptions :

"Tis but a few whose days amount
To three score and ten
And all beyond that short account
Is sorrow, toil and pain."
(from Nancy Agnes Austen McCreight headstone)

Dear Wes,
I just got your request for correction of Kate Burkhart, wife of Calvin Peter Burkhart, a great, great uncle of mine. Can you tell me if her maiden name was Connor, and, if so, where does Whittlesey fit in? Is it her middle name and perhaps her mother's maiden name? If this is the case, I would greatly appreciate learning about her parents for both Find a Grave and my family tree, which I've been working on for nearly four yrs. (since Oct 2010). Thanks so very much. My younger sister, Nancy, is recovering from back surgery so I've not been spending much time on line the past 11 days, but am her care taker and this is her 8th back surgery. Take care and hope to hear from you soon.
With All Sincerity, Kathie L. Webb Blair, Portland, OR
P.S. Do you happen to have any pictures of her? Thank you.

RE: T J Mansfield , Cartersville GA
No, I don't. I wondered that also. I am planning to research and see if it is one of his siblings. Has me wondering if he and his wife were together when he passed away. They didn't share a tombstone anyway. If I do figure it out I will put the other names in. As far as being related it is shirt tail relation or inlaw. don't need to transfer. Thanks

I don't meet the Find A Grave criteria, but I'd be honored to maintain the memorials. It's up to you. We met at a family reunion and corresponded for several years. They were distant cousins of my husband.

RE: Georgia Hendrick
Hi Wes,
You're right! Georgia's birth certificate does not have Cherokee Co as her place of birth, but whatever I copied from the internet and pasted to her birth certificate, did have Cherokee. I tried to find it, but had no luck. So it looks like Cherokee is an error. Sorry about that. I didn't notice the difference when I suggested the change. I did find something about her death from the Dept of Commerce and posted it. Thanks for pointing out the error. Sandy

Thanks Wes for adding the changes and catching Nancy's date. I guess it could be Emery's father who also was named Emery. I deleted the edit. Appreciate your help! Kelly
