Announcements:Confederate Soldiers in the PoynterFamily database
Posted by: Jack Poynter on July 22 2011 11:37

This report shows all the kinship groups in the PoynterFamily database. Each kinship group contains a list oif the Confederate soldiers in the group; each soldier show it's relationship to the olther soldiers; each soldier contains a link to the family tree entry for that person.

Orphans are listed in a separate section.

The report is incomplete, in that some of the planned sections are not yet added.

Genealogy:Attached Report on the Confederate Soldiers in the Main Kinship Group
Posted by: Jack Poynter on July 14 2011 12:07

This report shows all the soldiers in the PoynterFamily database in the major kinship group (79), of which the pivot is John Barrett Everett, and so all the soldiers in this group are related to me.

There are 166 soldiers in this list; most are in the four Twiggs units, around 40 are not.

Each man is tagged with a link into his family history, his military unit if known, and how the men are related, in a sequence chain beginning with John Barrett Everett.

Future versions of this report will contain links into family history for all the people in the report, which will be particularly useful for the many Frederick Davis Wimberly's contained in it.

The other kinship groups will eventually be contained in this report.

The report is attached to this news article for lack of a better place to put it.

This Web site:Rosters modified
Posted by: Jack Poynter on July 13 2011 10:21

I've modified the rosters for the Twiggs units so that it's easier to compare the names in the rosters to the names in the database. Most are the same, in some the initials have been expanded, in a few the names are quite different. For instance, 'MELLANA' turns out to be 'MALANEY', following inspection of the actual service records for the man. The rosters are now in alphabetical order, with the first and last names for each roster third appearing in the table of contents.

To view the rosters, click on the 'My Pages' tab, which will bring up the table of contents.

I'm posting this to multiple sites, because most sites on my list are interested in middle Georgia history. To opt out of this sort of post, please leave a comment on this article.

Genealogy:Lee's in North Carolina and Virginia
Posted by: Jack Poynter on Oct 12 2010 21:49

Sadie Jenkins and Berta Ulm, both descendants of John Everett, Sr and his wife Ann Lee, have been studying Ann Lee's pedigree, and believe they have found an alternate pedigree for her rather than the one posited by the Medders database.

I knew having Robert E Lee as a cousin was too good to be true.

There are now two trees on this website, "PoynterFamily" and "Lee Family," while we study the situation. To view the new Lee information, select the "Family Tree" tab, then, on the upper right postion of the screen, select the "Family tree to display" dropdown, and choose "Lee family". To get back to the other tree, use the same method, choosing "PoynterFamily".

At some point, when all are satisfied, I'll do whatever changes need to be made to go back to one tree.

The attachment is the document Sadie and Berta sent me.
