Sometime in to the relationship she found out that he was married, so so she tells. a child was born from union Aug 1955. I have been searching for many years for info on him. I would really like to know if I have any Half Uncle and Aunts out there some where. This have been a missing part of my life for sometime.

HARDAGE/HOWARD
I have been trying to find information on the William C. Hardage and Malinda Howard-Hardage Family. Malinda descended thru her parents Thomas Howard and Elizabeth Byers-Hardage who lived in Forsyth Co., Ga. from 1846 to about 1860. Thomas Howard, Samuel M. Reese, and William Hardage all moved to Blount Co., AL by the time the 1860 census was taken in Blount Co., AL. The Howard and Hardage Families moved to Morgan Co., AL by the 1870 census but both Thomas Howard and his wife Elizabeth Byers are buried somewhere in Blount Co., AL. I, of course, am trying to find any descendants of this Howard Family and also the Reese and Hardage descendants.

TAYLOR
I am looking for the grave site of a Civil War veteran, Union Soldier named Augustus Taylor from 2nd Tennessee Cavalry who died October 6, 1864 probably from wounds received in a skirmish in Athens, Alabama which occured on October 2, 1864. I have spoken to a few historians in Athens and they said that a soldier wounded in Athens would probably have been taken to a Union garrison in Decatur for medical treatment. I am trying to find out where this young man is buried. He is the only relative that fought in the Civil War from our family. Often civil war parks have graves in them and I thought you might know of some or know of some local historian that might help me locate this soldier.

McGUIRE/WRIGHT
I am trying to determine the family of Elizabeth McGuire Wright. She was married to William Wright in GA. He was deceased by 1850 in Cobb County, GA, where Elizabeth and the children lived. There were several Wright and McGuire families in 1850 Cobb County, GA. However, I have not connected Elizabeth with the McGuire's. I feel these were her family, for she named children the same names. She moved to Morgan County, AL by the latter 1850s as her son George was on the Mortality Schedule for 1859, then the family was on the 1850 census. Some of the census records give NC as the birth state for Elizabeth.



Joe Lamons 1/17/2003

LAMONS/LEMONS
I was surprised none of the Lamons/Lemons in Huntsville had made the updates for the website.Mordecai Lamons arrived in Morgan County (from Robeson County NC) prior to 1809. I believe they came with a James Black (Father in Law). Most of the family remains in Alabama ever since. I used to disscuss the family tree with a Dan Lemon who said he had seen documents from when Mordecai Lamons ran a Ferry across the Tennesee River (with lodging) and also documents where Mordecai contracted to build roads for Huntsville. While much of the original land was donated to the state to build a school and church, I heard the original homestead site exist on a someones land (a doctors), and that the cemetary was in poor shape as the grave stones were sinking into the ground. The USGS site Lamons Cemetary (on the Newsome Sink) is suppose to be at the original homestead.
