"Hi Mary Lou - Thank you for your reply; we may have corresponded by e-mail. Christine Fichtelmann, born around 1882 in New York, was my husband's great-grandmother. She married Harry Julius Koehl in around 1898 and they lived in Brooklyn. Their…"

Hello my name is Thomas Moore. I am just beginning to search my family tree. I have found family coming from rutherford county n.c. and setteling in different parts of s.c.
My Grandfather was Grover Cleveland Moore and married Annie Laurel Bright. My Great grandparents were James (Jim) Moore and Polly ? Moore. They seem to be part of the misteries of "THE DARK CORNER" section of Upstate s.c.
Any help anyone could offer would be greatly appriciated. Thanks again Thomas Moore....
Greta: Margaret Leake Brinlee and Robert Brown Sims were my great-great grandparents. My great-grandfather was Robert Brown Sims, Jr. His sister was Mary Ann Sims who married James Edward Sims, one of Hiram Brinlee Jr's sons. Interesting little family knot!
Greta, I noticed on the South Carolina group that you mentioned the MANNING surname in Greenville and Anderson Counties. If this is the same family that produced 6 governors, my grandmother worked and traveled with the family as a nanny for years. Even though she only passed away in 2004 and I was very close to her, her genealogy is still quite a mystery for me. I can't help but wonder if comparing notes with a relative of the family for whom she worked might yield more results. Hope to hear from you soon! Rodney Williams
***waves to Greta*** In your reply to your comment on my page, no sadly I haven't made a research trip down to Texas. I had a couple of great uncles settle down somewhere in Houston, Texas. I haven't done much on their lines yet.....& I just have that bit of info from my grandfather's obituary. Where in Texas are you searching? And have you been to Arkansas doing any research?
I just had a thought....you know how they have those tour bus trips/packages? I wonder if they have one for genealogy buffs? lol Come to think of it, it sounds like a neat idea. :)
They might be connected. I have family in Texas. I have the Highsmith family book and I am trying to update it with all of the new members. Our family came from KY to. The Lewis and Moore families are in IL and also came from Ky by way of NC I believe. I have to ck my papers.
Hi, nice to meet you ! I recognized "your" photograph from all the genea-blogs that have Google Friend Connect. It must be your badge ;-) I thought I had to meet you. Kitty is looking good ! Do you have a blog yourself ?
