I am looking for the decendents of Mary (BOSWELL) SANFORD: She was married to James SANFORD, they had several children Johnorie?, Mattie M., George, William, Henry. These are the names I found on the 1930 census, in there household they had a boarder by the name of Jerry BOSWELL.
From the information that I have Mary was born in Madison,GA (Morgan County) this is where she married James SANFORD, I think he was born in Madison to. My grandfather was Joe BOSWELL. Mary's brother. He was found dead around 1951 or 1952 in the woods in Georgia. My mother was only nine years old at that time. Her mother Mary Lou BOSWELL moved to West Virgina and on to Rochester, NY. so she never knew her father people. So I have beeen researching the BOSWELL name and I have made contact with some family in Madison GA, but it seems that the family did not keep in contact with one another, I was told that she moved to Tennesee, but no one keep in contact with her.
If you have any information on this family I would be very greatful for the info. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your time and consideration, Christine Curtis

Do you have any information regarding my family the WILLIAMS or the CARROLLs from Hamilton county Tennessee or now they reside in Dade county Georgia?
My family had a plantation in Georgia there names were HAMILTON at that time my grandfather Clarence Andrew CARROLL born Feb 19 1912 died Aug 1968. He was an electrician in Hamilton county. He worked in some oil feild over seas he also went to prison for driving the gettaway car in a gas station robbery.
My grandmother Mildred Evelyn CARROLL born March 30 or 31, 1912 died 1984 was a farmer. Her maiden name was Mildred Evelyn WILLIAMS. My grandmother had some brothers who are buried in the National Chattanoga Cemetery. Larry WILLIAMS, Owen WILLIAMS, Dwight WILLIAMS, Carlton WILLIAMS, Ray WILLIAMS they all had children who I cannot locate.
My mother's name was Hellen CARROLL born November 8 1931 died October 2001. Her brothers were Andy CARROLL, Mike CARROLL, her sisters were Mary CARROLL, Ann CARROLL who died at 11 years old and Linda CARROLL who later became Linda PRATT. My grandparents owed 200 acres or land that was swindled by a lawyer from my grandmother.!
I have a lot of unanswered questions because my mother was mentally ill I do not know if some of these stories are accurate. My mother was basically cut off from her family when her parents died so I did not get to know if all this information was correct since we have lived in Illinois for 38 years. I can't find any of my family members and I am trying to research all of this. My grandmother family were WILLIAMS. They were Larry WILLIAMS, Dwight WILLIAMS, Owen WILLIAMS, Carlton WILLIAMS, Ray WILLIAMS played guitar and lived in Atlanta and made a record album. My sister Connie Joyce WILLIAMS is missing. My grandmother gave her to her sister and I vowed to my mother I would find her some day any information would help that you may be able to provide.

My grandfather's name was Robert LACKEY, he grew up in Harrison, Tn. Since my grandfather divorced her, no one will even tell me her name. My father had started looking for her, but had never looked over the Internet. My father's name was William (Bill) LACKEY. He lived in the Harrison area most of his life, he attended Central High School. He still has a brother living, but I can get no info out of anyone here. My fathers dying wish was to find out if his mother is still alive. If anyone can give me any leads, like where to get info on a marriage certificate or birth certificate for free. anywhere on the web. My grandmother's name might be on some of this and then I might get more leads on my search...thanks,
