I am Frances Ingram Tindell. I am descended from Bryan W. Gause of South Carolina and James A. Ingram of South Carolina. Both of the families moved to Alabama and Georgia. Most of them settled in the Pike County, Alabama area. After the Civil War Bullock County, Alabama was created from parts of Pike and other surrounding counties. Some of Bryan's grandchildren ended up in Early County, Georgia. Now there are Gause's and Ingram's scattered all over.
When I started the search for my relatives little did I know how many roads I would travel. It has been interesting to say the least. There is always something new and exciting around each corner. I have been able to see where my great grandfather had his grist mill and walked in the same places that he must have once walked. I can show my children where my grandfather grew up and the creek he played in as a child. How wonderful it is to be able to do that!! I look forward to seeing even more places that at one time or another belonged to my ancestors. Along the way I have met many wonderful people, some are relatives and others are people searching for their own roots. In either case, one couldn't ask for better 'travelling companions'. I could not have gotten as far as I have without them.
I hope that in these pages you might find something to help you on your search for roots. Please contact me if you see anything here that looks familiar. I have used census, county, state, and family records to document the information here. Happy hunting!!
