JENKINS posted by Al Hill on Saturday, February 8, 1997

Request information on Shephard JENKINS and wife Elizabeth, apparently listed in 1850 Cherokee County Census. Both may have been born in South Carolina. Probably married in early 1840s. Appear to have moved to Alabama in 1850s. There were five children by 1850 (including a set of twins). Family tradition suggests Shephard had two brothers and they may have been Irish immigrants. My line of interest runs through son James Ransom JENKINS, born 15 Feb 1847.

HONEYCUT, HONEYCUTT, HUNEYCUTT, HUNNICUTT posted by Bill Hines on Saturday, February 8, 1997

Sharing information regarding persons with this surname throughout the United States...anytime, any place, any reason.

AGEE, BRAND, BRANDS, FINCHER, KIRK, MC PHERSON, WINN, WYNN posted by Wyndell Taylor on Saturday, February 8, 1997

Searching for any family connections to the WYNN / WINN family in Cherokee County. George Washington WYNN, believed to be the son of Thomas Marion WYNN and Nancy AGEE, who lived in Cherokee County during the late 1840's. Nancy [AGEE] WYNN was back in Gwinnett County on the 1850 census, with sons George and Clemon Quillian WYNN. Nancy was on the Hamilton County TN census in 1860 with George, his wife Nancy Jane [KIRK] WYNN and family. George and family was back in Cherokee County before May of 1861 when he joined the CSA at Camp McDonald.
The family lived in Cherokee County until about 1878 when they moved to Cherokee County Alabama.
Believe that Lucy Jane WYNN who married Stephen McPHERSON , Nov 1847, in Cherokee Couhty GA was George W. WYNN sister.
Also believe there is a connection between the WYNN family and the BRANDS in Cherokee County. Especially the family of Jane and Rebecca BRAND.
Recently discovered a Michael FINCHER in the 1860 census of Cherokee County with a wife with the name Elmira. Is this possibly the Michael FINCHER and Elmyria WYNN that married in Burke County North Carolina? There were suppose to be two sisters of George Washington WYNN who married FINCHER brothers in Burke County North Carolina.
Any information appreciated.

John DOVER family, 1840 census, is living next door to James and Elizabeth FIELDING. Bailey Appleton DOVER. b 1817 NC married Martha Ann "Patsy" FIELDING. I believe John DOVER is the father of Bailey A. DOVER. Who are the other children of John?
The name of John's wife is not known. John is either widowed or divorced by 1850 when the remaining two children are still at home with John in Alabama.
I believe James FIELDING is the son of Isham FIELDING who was in Hall Co., GA in 1830, having come from Pendleton. I suspect that John DOVER, b. ca 1793 came to Cherokee Co. from Buncombe Co., NC. The John DOVER in Cherokee Co. purchased his land at a sheriff's auction on default of a loan by David SPARKS of Morgan Co.This same David SPARKS moved to Carroll Co. GA by 1850. Sarah SPARKS, his daughter, married David DOVER in Carroll Co., GA bef 1840. David DOVER was b. 1814 SC.
Carroll Co. 1840 also has another John DOVER, b. 1780-1790. Other allied lines of interest are:
