Thank You Steve,
I can add some data to what you have but not a whole lot. I see you have nothing on Alexander S. and Nancy Henry. both are buried in the Sand Hill Cemetery on the Stillmore Hwy. It is on the left a few hundred yards from US Hwy 1. I can give you some names of their children. Alexander is the son of John Emmitt, according to what I have.
Actually you have more in print than anybody else I have ever known. I am GG Grandson of John Emmett through his son Alexander or "Alex" as he was known.
I had hopes of conecting this family to Patrick Henry but I believe I have discovered something nobody else knows about but it is something of which we can be proud.
In the year of 1738 The Peter Heinrich family came to the colony of Georgia and settled at Ebenezer. That was the settlement of the German Salzburgers and they came from Germany. Peter lived about a year and died at Ebenezer. His wife Juliana never maid it to Ebenezer. She died within about a month in Savannah. They had several daughters and a son, John Georg Heinrich who was a young boy and an endentured servant in Savannah.
After John Geoorg Heinrich worked himself into freedom he settled in "St Pauls Parrish" up near Augusta. He married, raised a family and has more than 600 descendants. I found his name had been anglicized to John Hennry and later to John Henry. That was while he lived in St Pauls Parrish.
I know I am a descendant of that John Henry on my Mothers side. This means my parents were probably cousins with their common ancestors about 200 years back.
Anyway there is a possibility the entire Henry family of Emanuel County may all be descendants of that John Henry.
We are accounting firm in Macon, Ga. Where do you live and do you know if you are related to Linwood Riner about age 65 in Swainsboro? You may reach me at email@example.com.
I would love to compare what we have but give me until after the month of April. Please!
