I'm sorry it has taken me so long to update this site. I had removed the family lines so I could update the reports and then the reports would not update. I have not been able to figure out the error so I'm going thru the backdoor and listing the reports under related lines.
The report shows four generations.
The family history of Lott and Winifred Ivey book has been completed. please visit www.iveynance.com for complete details.
This book also has Meshack Teal and Joseph Williams lines.
The Cravens in the Civil War book is now available at
https://www.createspace.com/3397203 It is also available at amazon.com and qualifies for free shipping. This book is the scanned pages from the Archives of the civil war records and widow pensions for the sons, grandsons and sons in law of John Craven and Elizabeth Smith. There were more images than I originally thought so they had to go in a separate book.
The John Craven of Coweta and Carroll County, GA book by Ivey Nance is available at https://www.createspace.com/3392367
It is now available at Amazon.com and qualifies for free shipping.
I want to state clearly that the books will carry no new information. All our research is given freely on this internet site. The books are being done because the family perfers a hard copy instead of getting on the computer to look things up.
The only thing in the book that is not listed here are some pictures that I do not have room to post on this site.
Some of the emails I have for you are no longer valid. Since I am not sure if you are still researching the line or not, I have not listed you as a contact person in the book. We have attempted to give proper credit to everyone who has provided a picture or information.
I greatly appreciate Candace, Marj, Gerald and Thomas Knott for their continued support in the research. There are many more who have been of invaluable help that I am neglecting to mention but you know who you are. I just can't think of everyone's name right now. But thank all of you for sharing and caring about our family history.
