NOTES:

 

  • NOTES 1
    Mr. Williams,

    I have worked with Virginia Crilley on the McCord Cemetery information and the notes that went along with it. I'm a descendent of the McCords and continue to do research on the family. The information for Jane McCord shows here maiden name is Martha Jane Reeves. This information is incorrect. I have proof that Jane McCord never married. Her children were illegitimate. Is there anyway that the Martha Jane Reeves information can be removed from the listing. I know there is a McCord relative that insists that this is her maiden name but in the last year I found proof where Jane McCord's children Lemuel and Emily received Georgia land grants as illegitimate children.

    I've tried to contact Virginia with the information but the messages keep coming back where the email address is no longer valid.

    Let me know what I need to do on this. I feel the Martha Jane Reeves information is going to mislead people who are doing research. I'm going to Georgia this summer and hopefully will be able to find information as to who is the father of Jane McCord's children.

    Thanks
