I am searching for the family of a soldier who was killed in the Korea War. His remains were never recovered. Our government has no family contact at this time for this soldier:

John Henry BROWN, JR
Born: 6/13/1931
MIA: 2/12/1951

When the Korean War ended the enemy never returned or accounted for over 8,000 of our servicemen. They died in their hands. That was over 50 years ago. Since that time DNA has been perfected and also they are recovering remains in North Korea. Our government is obligated to return those remains to the proper family. DNA samples have been obtained from most of the families of these missing soldiers. For various reasons some families have not been located.

When the remains are recovered and identified they will be returned to the family for proper burial. I am helping a Korean War veteran in this noble cause and I hope that you can help in some way to find this family. For more information on the project you may go to My part in the program is to match up the lost families with the proper agency.

I will be grateful for any assistance in locating this family.

I'm doing research on Rebecca (STILES) TAYLOR. I believe that her maiden name was STILES because an article written about her death said she was survived by a brother with the last name of STILES. She was a journalist for the Savannah Journal, a black newspaper, in the 1930s. She lived in Savannah and I'm trying to find a birth date and place. Her obituary in 1958 said she was 77 years old so I think she was born around 1881.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I am looking for my mother's mother, my grandmother or any family. My mother never knew her. Her name is on my Mom's birth certificate as Anna Mae BROWN age 22. My Mom was born in 1936. That made Anna Mae (BROWN) ANDERSON born 1914. We believe she was born in Savannah, Georgia Jan or Feb 1914. Then she migrated to New York where she had my Mom March 28, 1936. If someone has any information, please contact me. We never knew any of my Mom's side of the family. She died in 2005 with a sad heart.

I believe that Mary Ann PAYNE was born in Chatham County in 1804. I've no idea who her parents were, but she showed up in Tennessee in 1837. There she married a man named Dennis HOPKINS.
Thank you for your help - It is much appreciated.

I am interested in seeing the obituary for Isaac LOFTIN, who died in Chatham Co. 6 Sept 1921. I have found information that his obituary is in the Savannah Morning News:
Issue 9/8/1921, section A, p. 5, column 5 & Issue 9/8/1921, seciton A, p. 8, column 5, and that this newspaper is available on microfilm at your library. I am hoping that someone there in Chatham Co. would copy this obituary and send to my email address. I am doing research for a friend, and we believe that he may be her grandfather.

Does anyone do lookups for the Cherokee Hill area? Joseph WOODS and family farmed 300 acres along the Black Creek. Joseph died about 1797. His wife Mary Sterling WOODS may also be buried in the cemetery.
