Subject: [GASCREVE] LOVETT connections
Date: Tue, 10 Aug 1999 23:26:08 EDT


I have been looking at all of this Roberts info going back and forth, and I
think this is the prime time for me to ask about the LOVETT family. My
husband's great grandfather, The Rev Robert Burns Bryan, of Screven Co, and
later of Johnson Co, GA, had LOVETT cousins. There were LOVETTS in
Wrightsville, Johnson Co, GA in the late 1800's and early 1900's. I think
the family descendants are still there. They married into our BRINSON family
and other close families.

Here are the LOVETTs that I would like to connect. I do believe that they
are descendants of the Screven Co group. Does anyone know?

This outline is from our BRINSON file. The one below it is similar, and I
think that I have guessed what the Screven Co connection is, but I do not
have proof.

=================================
this outline is from our BRYAN file. I think that I have this one right, but
need some additional proof and help. A cousin on the BRINSON side helped me
get this far, but I do not know how they connect to the rest of the Screven
Co Lovetts.
