Subject: [GAMARION] McMichael in Marion
Date: Sun, 20 Apr 2008 14:33:24 -0400
Thaks a lot. I will probably search it next time I go. I have searched
Sumter and Marion for mention...and all the newspapers I could find.
Seaborn McMichael is my ancestor-and Elizabeth Riley- Do you come from his
brother John? Most folks do...
Seaborn's son Thomas Jefferson married Mary Jane Aven and they moved to
Marion Co- and had my Great-Grandmother Mary Jane McMichael married Wm.
Nathaniel Brown (Son of George son of Wm M)
my Grandparents Wm. Eudonah Brown & Georgia Judson Roberts
My Parents Causey Eudonah Brown & Nina Ruth Hooks.
nee Ms. Gerry Hill-Albany Ga
