How would it be possible for me to access the Family File Boykin. I am desperately trying to locate anything about Mrs. Dovie Mae Boykin Stovall and if I could learn her father's name it would help me so much. Thank you. I am trying to connect her to Nell Boykin Thames whose family was also Newton Co. folks. Ruth Stockstill Walker, Picayune, Ms.

Any help is appreciated! Linda Sullivan researching Andrew Jackson Gressett born 1845 to William and Syntha or Cynthia Gressett of Orangeburgh, S.C. Andrew Jackson Gressett married Alice Jeannette Grace August 1, 1882 in Sumter, Al. I believe that he is the brother of Dr. Allen Ulysses as well as Rev. Alvin that was married to Christine. In 1870 he is on US Census at Township 6 Range 13, Newton age 24; 1860 Census with W. Grissett and Cynthia with John P. and Mary Beat 4, Lauderdale next family is W.F. with 2year old boy Wm and it shows an L G Gressett with a Martha and child on the prior page, but that must be his older brother Charles G. Gressett (Grissett) The 1880 Census shows him as a widow in the home of Rev. A. , and Christena. Family search states he was married to a Laura Elvira Batson. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Rebecca Zuzan and the marrriage to John Bond. According to the website, "Our Bond Family Heritage", Rebecca was married to Col. John Bond, Sr. (his 3rd wife). This web site has pictures of Col., John Bond and Rebecca's son, Dr. T. J. Bond, buried in Westview Cemetery in Atoka, OK. Col. John Bond, Sr.'s tombstone shows the name "Rebecca" at the bottom as his 3rd wife. I would like to know if this information is correct. I do know that John and Rebecca were married in Marengo Co, Al on Feb. 25,1825. Rebecca and John are both my ggg grandparents. So many websites are giving out wrong information. Is this information true?

This site is definitely one of the most well-designed county society pages I have ever seen. Thanks for the effort you put into providing these resources to the public.

I am interested in getting a copy of the Box family history from your archives but am not able to visit in person. Is it possible to received a scanned copy via email? If a printed copy is the normal means of sending information, I would gladly pay any fee required but I'm not sure of the protocol for requesting documentation. Can you please let me know what the protocol is for receiving information? My email is Thanks!

would like to contact anyone doing research on Cleveland family, specifically Tabitha Cleveland, born 1835 in Elbert Co, GA and allegedly married to George Sanford Taylor and then to Alexander McCullough. I would like to verify the marriage to George Sanford Taylor. Based on the ages of their alleged children, Jesse and William, there should be a record of them in the 1860 census as a married couple. I cannot find a record of them in 1860 but can find a record of a George S Taylor whose age and birth location appear to match George Sanford Taylor and whose children's names and ages appear to match but his wife's name is recorded as Susan. Any ideas. please email me at Thank-you.

If Carol Redmond views this site, please contact me at I found a cemetery record for Zylphia Davis but no additional information on her father. Carol's comment had no additional contact information so maybe she will see this note.
