Subject:  Re: [GAWARE] Update on Lewis Tillman Taylor of Ware, GA>Lake
City, FL>Polk Co...
 

Jack Do you relate to him and her??  I just noted you are a Hayes.
If so we must be kin.
Cinderella Sellers the Mother of Tobitha Lee who married Lewis Tillman
Taylor Sr. b. 1820  is the wife of James Lee.   James Lee and George Lee
were brothers.
They were sons of John Lee of Ware Co. GA

I have a book on them and want to add to it.
I have my direct line back now working on cousins.
Are you one of them??
Where do you live??
My Grandmother Maybel Johns and Harley went to Polk County years ago to
visit with some of these folks.
They once came down from GA before they moved down to visit.  They had just
arrived when they were told that Grannies Father had had a stroke back home
in GA.  So they retured to him.  His name was Albert Lewis Johns.  He at
that time was married to Irene Alvira Nettles.  His first wife my Grannies
Mother had died in 1911.  Her name was Martha Jane Lee  daughter of George
Lee and Francis Corbitt.  George was the son of James Lee and Catherine
Miller..
James was the son of George Lee and Rebecca Griffis.

This is the George Lee who was the brother of James Lee who married
Cinderella Sellers.

My Grannie just died last year she was 95 years old.  She kept good notes
and taught us a lot about our families and who we were.

Are we kin??
