- Nathanial Marion Obituary , died July 11, 1839 (10 KB)
From his obituary, Nathaniel Marion appears to be one of the more pious members of our family! More Marion family lore can be found on my link to "Swamp Fox" and in the notes of Decendents of Benjamim Marion (the original Marion, a Huegenot exciled from Fance).
- The Hartzogs of South Carolina (31 KB)

- The Family of Guy Bingham Chandler, b.1841 d.1916 (128 KB)
This is a fascinating tale of my GG Grandfather Guy Bingam Chandler and his family as told by his daughter, Lunetta Chandler Montgomery. It chronicles the family's move to Indiana and subsequent introduction into the "modern life" of the early 20th Century. The quality of the the scan was poor, but I tried to keep my editing to a minimum (despite some interesting syntax and spelling!).
- The Family of Joseph Jay Matthews b. 1841, d 1919 (6 KB)
Written by his grandaughter (my great aunt), Ruth Matthews Olsen, this story is as much about her memories as a young child with her Matthews grandparents as it is about him; nevertheless, she paints a nice picture of life through the eyes of a child at the turn of the century.
