I NEED HELP!! I'm actually looking for the ANCESTORS of my great-grandfather, James Andrew Moore. Here's my problem.

The farthest I can go back is my
> great-grandfather, James Andrew
> Moore (17OCT1840 - 06NOV1913). He shows up for the
> first time, age 19,
> on the 1860 Fannin Co, GA census, living in the
> household of James
> Parks. His occupation is listed as miller. It shows
> he was born in
> Georgia, and later census indicate that his parents
> were born here as
> well. Except for service in the Civil War, he
> apparently lived in Fannin
> county the rest of his life. Oddly, five of his six
> children ended up in
> Hazlehurst, Jeff Davis (formally Appling and
> Coffee) County, which is
> in south Georgia. (Fannin is in north Georgia, on
> the North
> Carolina/Tennessee line.) I have no idea why. A
> Girtman (That is the
> maiden name of a great-grandmother) did marry a
> Sarah A. Moore, who was
> born 18 JUL 1848. I'm GUESSING that there MIGHT be a

> My grandfather, John Avery Moore, married a daughter

> Latimer, His sister Callie married a Latimer son.
> James hendrick's wife

> Girtmans, and I
> believe the Latimers are mentioned in "Pioneers of
> Wiregrass Georgia" I
> also have some Tillmans in there.)
> By the way, the five Moore kids who ended up in south
> Georgia were (in
> order of age) Henry Gaines, Thomas Reneau, John
> Avery, Oscar Perry, and
> Callie Jane.
> Does any of this ring a bell?? Thanks!
