Thank you for what you offered. I have not done a lot of work on Etheldred, but as said have seen his name often. Have you seen the book "A History of Evans county, Georgia"? That also has some Hagin/Hagan info and some Burkhalter info. Most of it sounds like what you already know. I can't help but believe that John and Etheldred are related. How close, I don't know and so far I have been less than successful in finding anything out about John's siblings or parentage. I will send you an email with a little info I have collected that is not on my site because it is my opinion and or thoughts and not yet proven. We will keep searching. Good Luck.
