About Our Family Research

I started working on my family history in February of 2001 after going to a grave yard with my grandfather and a lady who works with the Georgia Forestry Service at Russel Refuge in Mt.Airy, Ga.
She had found a grave yard while on a hike on the Refuge, she talked with a lot of local people who remembered when the Refuge was bought by the Government. One gentleman told her it was an Anderson grave yard, and told her he had found a man up there one time greiving for his parents who were burried there. The man's name was James Ellard Anderson, according to this man James' parents and some others were burried there.
She spent a long time looking for someone who was relate to James Ellard, then one day someone told her about my grandfather, so she called him and sure enough James Ellard Anderson was his grandfather. But noone in the family knew anything about his parents, so my journey began....

I found out alot about James' wife though, her name was Lucy Emma (Emmaline) Ayers Anderson and her mother was a Bradley.
The Bradleys cime to Virginia from England in the mid 1600s. George and Mary Ann Hamilton Bradley, they had 12 sets of twins!!! 24 children in all and they all survived to adulthood, married and had children.
