Just thought it'd be good to start a thread for this - if you need an ancestry.com look up, just ask here and I'll be happy to help. I imagine others would be willing to as well - anyone?

Just don't abuse it and ask for like 10+ look ups, we're not going to research your entire family tree - if you have that many look ups, it's worth it to pay for at least a months worth of access to ancestry.com. One month isn't going to break the bank.

Me, too. I'm also a member of NEHGS (New England Historical and Genealogy Society) and have accessed to members-only databases. As well, I have a number of books relating to New England such as the Genealogical Dictionary of ME and NH, Farmer's Genealogical Register of the First Settlers of NE, Babson's and Pringle's histories of Gloucester, Haskell Chronicles, a number of books about the Plymouth Colony settlers, etc. My point of having all these things is to share the info :-)

Thanks in advance!! I did have a membership to Ancestry.com. My family tree(s) is still there but I can't afford the fees anymore. I got about as far as I could in three months. If I think of a loose end I just might take you up on it! I hit the classic slavery rolls/immigration road blocks before I stopped. I got back 4 generations in my family and 5 in my husband's family.

Thanks for offering: My grandfather was born in Chattanooga Ga. between 1864 and 1868. His name was William, Jefferson, Davis, Boulregard, Johnson Bond. From what I have read he must have been named after a number of Confederate Generals in the Civil War.
Thanks for any help you might be able to give me.

Carol

Do you have anymore info on him (like family members names)? There's a lot of William Bonds born in Georgia around 1864-1868. You'd think with all those names, it would narrow it down but most records won't list all those names together.

I can't seem to locate Chattanooga GA, but I can find Chattanooga Valley GA - would that be the birth place? What's interesting about Chattanooga TN is its close proximity to the Georgia border and the Chattahoochee GA area. I wouldn't know, off the top without some historical research, whether Chattanooga was split between GA and TN similar to towns along the US and Canadian border that were split.

Nearby in Crawford County GA (to the east of the above area) was a Bond family, Saunders/Sanders Bond and Catherine "Kittie" Miller. I doubt it's the correct family as your William JDBJ Bond, but there might be some relationship. Any of these names sound familiar?: Miller, Knight, Revell, or Saunders/Sanders and Kittie? This particular family loved names - Saunders' father was Robert George Washington Bond.

Question I gave you the wrong location......I am sorry

I thank you so much for your interest in my search. I looked again at my paper work and he didn't live in chattanooga, but in:
Chattahoochee County Ga. According to the Wikapedia Dictionary it is a county located in the U.S. state of Georgia. It was created on February 13, 1854. As of 2000, the population is 14,882. The 2007 Census Estimate shows a population of 9,430 [1]. It is part of the Columbus, Georgia-Alabama Metropolitan Statistical Area. The county seat is Cusseta, Georgia[1].

We don't know anything about him except that it was rumored that he left Georgia in the late 1800's because he had murdered a slave.
Birth certificates did not exist until 1910 and Mom had only one brother born after that who list my grandfathers name and birth place.
I, like many others I am sure, did not take the opportunity to ask my mother the questions I would ask her now if she were alive.

Thank again for your time and effort.

Carol
