One set of my 2-great grandparents were James Crow married 1846, Clarke County, Georgia, to Frances Mary Ann Allen. Do a search on this message board under my married name,Cates, to find my previous postings on this family on this message board. My line comes from their daughter, Amanda, who married P. C. Toole on the first page of the first marriage record in the new Oconee County, Georgia.
Now thanks to two Crow Cousins who found me through this message board last year we have a DNA match to the "silver" DNA Group at FamilytreeDNA from the company web site in Houston. Test number 229415 for James "Jim" Crow/e b. c. 1827 and lived in Clarke County, Georgia. He has matched the silver Crows which I am presuming are the Clarke County, Georgia, bunch. He has been a "stone wall" for years. Now that we have him in the right "family" we still do not have his parents names because of the lack of records in Clarke County, Georgia.
I am now open to any ideas of who his parents were and his exact family connection.
I am interested in corresponding with anyone who has documented "paper work/trails"on the earlist generations of this family. I have had for years a copy of the 1963 Crow Book by William Reginald Crow of the group that went to Louisiana. At one time I e-mailed back and forth with one of his relatives who were revising his book, but that was a computer crash ago or so.
One of these newly found cousins actually lives very near Athens, Clarke County, Georgia. Being originally from Georgia and having several Clarke County connections, I have actually been to the University Library and to the courthouse at least twice. Just have not been able to find the missing link for my connections. Open to ideas and location missing records. Clarke County records are fairly complete. My James Crow just did not leave any. He apparently worked as a Carpenter/mechanic in the Mills and did not own any land that I can find.
