Hello Russell and Greg, My line isJames Washington Golightly and Cynthia Ann Smith, thier son George Washington Golightly who married Mary Jane Wyatt, thier son William Washington Golighlty who marrie Jennie Lunn, thier daughter Stella Lea Golightly who married Walter Fred Brown, their son Wesley Jack Brown and then me. Greg, I have began, along with others, to research Cynthia Ann Smith since the Golightly researchers have an enormous amount of information.I have found that Cynthia Ann Smiths mother was Nancy? Smith. Do you have any info on Cynthia Ann? She diedand is buried in Illinoisand then James Washington married Mary Taylor Locker and she is buried with him in Charleston. J.W. had about 22 or 24 children in all!!
Washington was a "very" popular name also in this family. Does anyone have any research that may indiciate why??
Also Greg,their is a copy of a letter that J.W.'s son sent to his father before he died during the Civil War. If you do not have a copy, I would be glad to email it to you. Thats how I got it.
