Bio and Links
I am documenting the genealogy of my family. This includes the families of John Marion and Alice Mary (Needham) Kenney and James Wilbur Read. Surnames include Kenney, Read, Needham, Ditch, Halley, Gallop and many others, all of which lived in the Chicago area in the early 1900's. The Read family came from Saratoga County, New York and the Kenney's were from Pennsylvania.

I have a tree on which is currently private but I am willing to share information with anyone. When I feel confident that my data on Ancestry is mostly correct, I will make it public.

Benjamin Harris (1732-1812)
Yes, I would appreciate you making the transfers of Benjamin and Absalom Harris and Joseph Jeter. This Harris family has a connection to my Hunt family going back to England.

Harris Cemetery, Shoulderbone, Hancock Co., GA
I'm descended from Capt. Judkins Hunt, Sr., "RWS" (m. Mary Batte). My Hunts (incl. Halls) were related to the Harris family. The Hunt plantation was also located in Shoulderbone (nr. Fort Creek). To your knowledge do you believe there were only "3 graves" in the Harris Cemetery? Thanks ... "GG"

RE: Brantley
Oh cool. Thanks for the info. The A.D. Brantley that was married to Virginia is Asbury Dodge Brantley Jr.

My great grandfather who also lived in that area was Asbury Dodge Brantley Sr.'s brother and the parents to all of them was William James and Sallie Reynolds Brantley. So far I have found all of the children except for my great grandparents. Joseph Henry and Irma Seals Brantley. I know they lived in Sparta and Mayfield. For a while they moved to Savannah and once the kids were all grown they moved back and all the children stayed in and around Savannah. One of their sons was 21 years old and married 3 months and he and his wife accidentally drown. Still haven't found their graves but Henry put his own address on both death certificates as Mayfield.

I understand about the heat. I need to move west during the summer. I live in NW GA and it is just as hot and humid.

Thanks again for this.

Thanks so much for the picture of Asbury's headstone. I have been planning to take a trip down there but waiting until cooler weather in the Fall.
Did you happen to run across any other Brantley people there? Thanks so much!

RE: Williams Family
I don't know these people at all. I am doing a virtual cemetery on the men in the 1st Infantry, The Big Red One, WWII, and Wilbur Williams was one of them. His memorial had no photo so I requested one. In doing some research, I discovered who his Dad was. So glad that you were able to get the rest of te family. No, I do not know that lady. In fact, I have never even been to Georgia. Thanks again. Appreciate all your help. P.S. I am not a member of Archives or Ancestry but might join one if I could get some good info on some of these people.
