Hi, Rick. In researching my African American TALIAFERROS I am, of course, learning about the TALIAFERROS that were their slave owners here in GA. I have traced that line of TALIAFERROS back to SC and the Edward Mobley family, and I'm stuck there. No one sees to have any info on Edward MOBLEY TALIAFERRO (born in GA) or his father Richard (Born in SC), or his mother Susan MOBLEY. Stephen GREEN DORSEY (slave owner) was born in GA. I believe that line has Maryland roots, but I haven't gotten that far back yet; I'm stuck on, and obsessed with the TALIAFERROS. I look forward to participating in this group. Regards, Sandra. P.S. Wow, you're researching a lot of surnames!!!! :)
