The Rountree info is greatly appreciated. Have seen reference to this line several times over the years. If you will notice in the second generation there is the fourth child named William b. abt. 1787. You will also notice that all of these children were at one time in Burke County, Ga. A William Rountree is reported as being in Burke county, but no one seems to have any futher info on him, or at least no real proof of who this man was.
One can also see that Moses also had a son named William born about 1822! No futher information. We have here in Effingham a burial in and old cemetery which is that of a William M. Rountree. If I remember correctly he was born about 1822! With no futher information. No other Rountree is buried in this cemetery! Again, we have found two William Rountrees in the census records here that no one can ID. Some say that there was a Rountree family here at one time, but they did not "appear" to be related to our own line. Makes me wonder!!!! My father was named William Earl Rountree and one of his three brothers was named James Milton Rountree. There are quite a few female marriages in the old Salzburger records here, that wer of Rountree females that no one can seem to idenify, either. Strange......
Guess I need to gather more info on the William Rountree found in Burke County and compare some dates. We are also in the process of backtracing all the family (Rountree) land plats that lie in the same area of Effingham to perhaps find out who the first Rountrees were that settled here about 1850. Cornelius Green Rountree b. 1856, says in his 1910 will, "the old homeplace of my mother." So they surely were more Rountrees here. Or perhaps this reference referred to her parents land, which may well reveal her maiden name.
Please keep your eyes open for me pertaining to any info that might relate to this Effingham County line. I have studied several other Roundtree/Rountree Georgia lines and can find nothing. Altho they also have each a William with no futher information!!!
Thanks again, I shall keep this on file,
