Have hit the brick wall. My ggggrandfather, Shem (possibly Sherman) CARNES, born 1812 in SC, died 1905, buried in Kingston, GA, married on Feb 9, 1835 in Rabun Co GA, Elizabeth (Betty) ADAMS, born 1811 in SC, death date not known but buried in Kingston, GA. Children were: ANN - b 1838 (probably GA) ELIAS G - b 1839 GA, d 1932 JAMES C - b 1841 GA, d 1863 RICHARD S (B) - b 1843 GA ANDREW - b 1845 DORCAS - B 1847 GA, d 1924 Does anyone out there have any idea who Elizabeth's parents or siblings are? A sidenote to the above information is that, also in Rabun Co GA, on November 9, 1831, Eli CARNES (possible brother of Shem) married CLARISSA Adams (possible sister of Elizabeth). Has anyone heard of any link between the ADAMS' and the CARNES'? Any help or leads would be fantastic. Thanks in advance.
