My name is Dorothy, but my nickname is Scooter. I know, sounds odd for a grown woman, but, it's a name given to me by my father when I was just learning to crawl and I just turned 49 in May, 2013. Besides, Scooter fits me better than Dorothy!
As for names I am researching, the surnames GEORGE, HENRY, MOATES & MOODY are the basic ones. Other names include MANN, DAVIS, DELOACH, HUTCHESON, DELOACH, HOUSTON, HALL & THOMPSON.
One brick wall is the 1st wife of Jesse Martin "Bud" DeLoach. We've been told her name was Carrie Black, yet a marriage record shows the last name Surrency. I have found no info concerning her death, a divorce, a burial, nothing. It's like she simply vanished between 1910 and 1913. Tattnall COunty, Georgia
Another is John Emmett Henry, born May 18, 1818 and died February 8, 1900. He first married Martha Bowen. They had 5 children. She died February 1862. He then married Rachel Branch on May 11, 1862 in Laurens County, Georgia. They had 2 children. I can find NOTHING on John Emmett Henry prior to a census record in 1850. The 1880 census record shpows his father born in Virginia and his mother born in South Carolina. He moved quite a bit, but died in Emanual County, Georgia.
I look forward to corresponding with other researchers!
