January 29, 2015

Placed a note on Group Sheet for Samuel E. Prescott noting that we have learned that although he did serve in the Indian wars, he did not serve in the Civil War.  We had gotten our information from the memorial stone at his grave placed there by the Historical Society of Sebring, Florida.  We have now learned that the information refers to a different Samuel Prescott.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

December 10, 1014

Hey everybody.  I haven't been around for awhile.  Today, I did not add anything except a link to (as per their request).  I cleaned up a few links that no longer worked and removed the guestbook which my server no longer supports.

Have a wonderful Holiday Season!

June 15, 2012

I have added more videos.  Go to Mama's Book/videos.  The video will play from YouTube and on these newest videos there is no option to download and save.  Be patient - It's a little slow because it's loading all 16 videos.

June 10, 2012

As far as I can tell the book is working fine.  For those of you who do not know who Mama is - she is Louise Virginia (Weir) Frasier.  Now I have added some old videos.  To go to Mama's Book click the menu option on the left.  Once you get to Mama's Book the menu is across the top and there is an option for Videos.  If you have any questions you may email me.  E-MAIL

May 20, 2012

It took me a few days to get the book posted.  I had to use a different protocol and I think it's going to take awhile to get all the pictures working right.  At least I think you can read everything ok. 

I've been working a little on genealogy again - but got hung up on Levi Frasier again.  GRRRRRR!!!


May 15, 2012

Mama's book is now on this website.  For awhile you will be able to click on the menu option on the left.  I may eventually take that link off but you will still be able to get to it through the "Links" page.  Hope you enjoy the book and you may now email me about the book through one of the many links on this site.

June 17, 2011
I tried to publish the new web as a subweb to this one and it did not work.  As soon as I figure out how to do it I'll let you know here.

June 17, 2011
I Can't believe it's been 4 years since I updated this site.  Well now I've added a whole new subweb.  Mama wrote the story of her life in 1991 and we printed it up for her.  She died in 2000 and now I've decided to add her book to this site.  Just click "Book" on the left and if everything goes right you will be able to read the book.  I'll try to make a link back to the home page here.  Enjoy. 

November 17, 2007
I've had a rough 2 years.  I've not been able to add anything to the site for a long time.  Maybe next year I'll be able to get back to it.  If you have anyone you want more information on LET ME KNOW.
My computer crashed.  I was able to retrieve the site but it needed reworking.  So if anything does not work right PLEASE EMAIL ME!

August 9, 2005
With the information I received from Edward Hasslekus I have now been able to update the Group Sheet and Descendant Tree for James R. Barney and Elizabeth Crippen.
I have also added more Haynie pictures.  I now have a Haynie Picture Index page accessed from the bonus page. 

August 7, 2005
Updated Group Sheet and Descendant Tree for Jesse S. Budd and Frances J. Barney.  New information from Edward Hasslekus confirms that Frances J. Barney is indeed our ancestor.

August 6, 2005
I have had a good long vacation from genealogy and now will try to get back into the groove. 
Today I am adding Pension Papers for John B. Haynie.  I also fixed the table on the Searching for Levi Frazier page.
In the near future I hope to post more pictures - so visit again.
Thanks for your patience.

May 14, 2005
Added 3 more generations [where available] to those Ancestor Charts.  Access the Ancestor Charts from the Name Index Page.

May 12, 2005
    New design for Ancestor charts.  So far, there are only 7 generations (where available) but will add more.  Now every person on the chart has a link from the Name Index.  This will give you the placement of the person in the tree either up or down. Also for a starting point you can click on one of our grandparents in the heading on the Name Index page.  The old charts are no longer available.  Also no longer available are the Contents Page and the List of Individuals page.  If you have been using these pages to access the other pages I apologize - but I think you will like the Name Index page better.
    As always, if any link does not work, please email me from the Contacts Page..

Added Family Group Sheet and Descendant Tree for Charles Minnix, Sr. and Rachel.

March 31, 2005
Updated Family Group Sheet and Descendant tree for Wade Hampton Slaton II.  Still could not find parents for Mary Tucker.  I had trouble separating Wade's children from their cousins.  If I have anyone mixed up let me know

Guest Book.  You can sign my guest book if you have a message to all viewers or if you disagree with anything on this web site.  Warning!  I've had a few spammers sign the guest book  and I want you to know that I'm trying to keep them cleaned out.  I'm not sure if making your message private will protect your email address from spammers.  You could always email me direct -

March 22, 2005
Updated Family Group Sheet for William Miller and Added a four generation Descendant Tree.  I have still not found parents for William Miller or a surname for his wife Argant.  I'm looking at the possibility that her surname may be Bass.  If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

March 18, 2005
I have had a break - Thank you for being patient.  I received the Confederate Pension Application for G. W. HAYNIE from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.  I have transcribed and posted it.  It was interesting in that depositions had to be obtained from Calhoun Co, AL where E. J. Haynie (Enoch?) was Justice of the Peace.  It also includes the birth date for G. W. Haynie.

February 26, 2005
Charles Haynie and Susannah Hanks:  Updated Group Sheet and Descendant Tree.  I could not find information on several children of Charles and Susannah and could not even find names for four of the children.  If any one has any information I would surely like to hear from you.  I will be out of town for a few days so I won't check my email.  But I will access this web site so sign the guest book if you have information.
Thanks, Carrie

February 17, 2005
I would like to thank Melanie Atkins of Dalton, GA for sending me an excerpt from the William Allen Melton Diary.  I have added it under BONUS PAGES.  After I received the Diary I was able to update the Group Sheet and Descendant pages for Thomas Smedley and Naomi Melton and their descendants including John Smedley. 

Melanie also sent some pictures which I have not added yet but hope too soon.  I did add some pictures I already had.  Some of the pictures I already had came from Carol Cantrell of Rome, GA.  Thank you Carol.

Access the pictures from the Picture Index page (There's a button on the left).  Hope you enjoy.  If you have trouble accessing anything PLEASE EMAIL ME. As I add more things the site gets more complicated and tangled!

February 14, 2005    Happy Valentine's Day!

George Haynie and Elizabeth Roddan - Updated group sheet and added descendant tree.
You may see a slightly different look to the menu buttons.  I wiped them out trying to add a PICTURE PAGE and had to redo them.  I have added a few pictures and you can access them from the Pictures Page.  I will be adding more as time allows.  Maybe I will eventually add a link from the other pages.  We'll see.

February 5, 2005
Updated Family Group Sheet and Descendant Tree for William Lewis Cranford and Pally Sanders.  I believe I have found John Cranford in Lincoln Co, TN in 1830 and 1840.  Hooray!!

January 31, 2005
Before publishing the following updates, I spent time looking for a definite link between our Thomas Patterson and John Jackson Patterson and on to Tryon Patterson.  I failed.  The only John Patterson in Georgia who could be Thomas' father is in DeKalb Co, GA in 1830.  Nothing in 1840 and 1850.  So we are still relying on tradition for Thomas' lineage.
Updated Family Group Sheet and added Descendant Tree for Thomas Elbert Patterson and Sarah Kidd.  

January 12, 2005
Updated Family Group Sheet and Added Descendant Tree for Henry W. Brasher and Martha C. Garrison. 

January 6, 2005
Added Family group sheet and Descendant tree for John Jeremiah Collier and Sara Ann Wood.  Some of John and Sara's grandchildren seem to have moved West before marrying or soon after and I have not been able to find them.  If you recognize a name and there are no spouse or children listed for that person, possibly you could help look for them?  Thanks

January 2, 2005
Hope everyone has a wonderful 2005!
