I have a lot of Clonts/z connections; Longs; Polks etc etc.
Here is a portion:Eleanor "Nellie" Shelby (of Thomas & Hannah (Polk) Shelby ...Thomas son of Rees & Mary Shelby);Nellie married son of Capt. Charles Polk & Phoebe Helms called Charley or Charles Polk Jr who died young in NC...Nellie and children went to Georgia.their son Ezekial Polk b 1808 NC married Malissa Jane Weddington (1809-1893) their children included Mary Jane Polk b 1829 Cabarrus Co. NC. died June 1859 in Paulding co. GA.
She married Jeremiah Wesley Clontz or s? (1821-1863)
Cass K. Shelby (our guru) says they both buried Bethel Church Yard and had three children) one is named Jane for her mother...cant find others at moment.
I also have several connections to LONGs (in fact realize that I have a first cousin who married a Bill Long whose ancestors came from North Carolina..
nothing surprises me any more.
can you help me figure out which one is connected to you? more info? have you read 1850 census of GA? & 1860 cn?
My Shelbys went to GA to Coweta County GA so I never looked at Paulding co.
