Maternal Ancestors

I am tracing my mother’s paternal ancestors who migrated from Georgia in the early 1920’s. My direct line moved to Wisconsin, but others traveled to Illinois, Michigan and Ohio. There are also many descendants that stayed in or near the same counties in Georgia that included Banks, Hall, Jackson and Hall. The primary surnames in this group include:

      I have relatives in Talbot County, and the names Francis and Seaborn/bron run throughout my family. I would love to compare information with you. Thanks for visiting my blog!

        Hello, I am so happy to have found this! My dad‘s last name is Neil and so I have been using to really look into my tree and see how far back I can go out on my ancestors. A lot of the names you mentioned are on my family tree! I have so far gotten stuck and haven’t been able to get past this name and maybe you may know something or can help. I see you said something about stuff being a slave name what is it which was very interesting for me, I found a man name Oprasia Neal married to Isabella Neal (don’t know her maiden name) but i can’t find ANY other record of them. Only on the 1870 censusof talbot county
