Hi! I'm afraid I can't help you much. While it is possible that a
branch of my ancestry travelled down to Georgia, I don't have any knowledge
of them. The only family line that I know of travelled out through
Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio to Indiana, where my Great-Grandfather was
born. I'm not sure why my Grandfather's middle name was Sherman, but since
he was born in 1865 I would guess it had something to do with General
Sherman, something that seems unlikely for Georgians. I would be interested
to hear, though, if you do find any links to my George line.
