Pamela Harper - 06/23/97 I am researching HARPER and MCDONALD lines in Rome. I know my g-gfather, Charles Mallory HARPER was born in Rome in 1839 and died there in 1909. My g-g mother, Georgia MCDONALD, died in Rome in 1905 at age 59. Both are buried in Myrtle Hill Cemetery. I am looking for their antecedents. My grandfather, Donald HARPER, was born around 1870s. He went to college in Macon, then moved to NY. His sister, Joy HARPER, (unmarried), died in Rome around 1965.
Pamela HARPER - 06/23/97 I am researching my gg-grandfather and gg-grandmother, Charles M. and Georgia MCDONALD HARPER. He was born in Rome, Ga. in 1839 where he died in 1909. Georgia was born elsewhere, I believe, and died in Rome in 1905. Both are buried in Myrtle Hill Cemetery. I am trying to research HARPER line. Charles' middle name, I believe, was MALLORY, which may be a family name, possibly his mother's maiden name. One of their children was my grandfather, Donald HARPER, who spent most of his life in NY and in France. Another family surname is THORNTON.
Maria Hibbert - 06/30/97 I'm searching for my mother DOROTHY MAI MORRELL, nee RAPER, who I haven't seen since I was 5 years old. Her birth certificate shows her father's name as Z(?)

He married Evelyn Thomas of Chattanooga, Tn. His occupation was lineman. I thought perhaps I might have relatives in the Rome, Floyd County, Georgia area who may have some information about my family. My mother and father, Charles Morrell were married in Lakeview, Ga and divorced in Wichita Falls, Tx in 1952. If my RAPER grandparents remained in the area, and are buried there, maybe an obituary is available with some information. My name is Maria and a friend, Janice, is sending this query for me. If you could put me in touch with someone who may be able to help me, I'd be forever grateful!

Barbara Jarvis - 07/07/97 I am on a dead-end search for the family of my grandmother, Minnie F. Smith. She was born in Alabama in May 1863. Her father was a full blood Cherokee Indian but her mother was white from GA. This is the story as I have been able to piece it togather. Her father * Smith was a Riverboat owner and Captain. The family lived on the boat so they were never counted in any census. When the boat was sunk by the Yankees in the early days of the Civil War, Capt Smith brought his wife back to his family home in Ala where Minnie was born. After the war they went back to the river and Ark. The first documentation that I can find is Minnie's marriage to James Solonia Mack in 1881 in St Francis Co. Ark. I do not know her fathers first name or her mothers name but I do have a clue in the name of Minnies Children. Her first son is named for her father in Law, her second son is named for his father and her third son is named Teggert or Taggert. I betting that this was her mothers maiden name. She was probably from a county that bordered Ala that was from the old Cherokee lands. Do you have any marriage records of 1850's that would show *Taggert to *Smith? This might give me the breakthrough that I need. Thank you.
