I am looking for any information on Sarah ADAMS. She is my mother's bio. mother. She surrendered all rights to my mother to M.C. ALDERMAN and Lillie ALDERMAN. There was a man that kept in touch with my grandmother by the name of James T. PATE. My mother was born sometime in December we think. There are some people out there that know some things about our search for who her mother and father were, but they do not offer any help to us. I think my mother was born sometime in 1943 or '44. We would like to know about our roots and were they came from. I have papers that my mother had collected after the death of the said Lillie ALDERMAN. I know she was born in Duval County, Jacksonville, FL, but when and where is a question. Any one that can help, please do so. We would really like to know who fathered my mother also. Contact: me.

I am trying to find the GARCIAs males that lived in St. Augustine in the 1800's (borne between 1840-1850). My great-great-grand-father married a lady from St. Augustine, last name ANDREU, in 1865-1872. Sometime later they moved to Cuba, I don't know when. I know one daughter, Rosa was borne in 1874, she had four siblings, Dolores, Rafael, Clara and Caridad, I don't know if they were borne in Cuba or Florida. I know the ANDREUs family were of the Minorcan of St. Augustine, I am not sure if the GARCIAs were Minorcan desendants too. This is very important to me because my parents were third removed cousins, so the above Carida and Rosa Garcia ANDREU were both my great grandmothers by my mother and my father side.

Thanks to the efforts of other family members my family has traced it's roots back to a member of the family born in Mississippi in 1862 named Andrew Joseph CHAPMAN. This ancestor of mine was orphaned at a very young age and reportedly did not remember anything of his mother and only that his father's name was Joseph. We have learned that for a while he lived with an uncle in Jacksonville until he ran away at the age of 15 (approx.). Right now I do not know, but am hoping, that this uncle was his father's brother and not his fathers brother-in-law. I'm hoping to be able to trace my family's origins back farther through this uncle, since there is precious little information about Joseph CHAPMAN. At present I do not have a name for this uncle but know only that he was a white male, I'm hoping his last name was CHAPMAN, and I would guess that he owned some property of some kind, although that is only a guess. Would you know of any place where I could obtain, preferably online, the census data for Jacksonville from 1870? If my dates are correct my only really hope is the 1870 census data, since Andrew Joseph would have run away in 1877-78, just a short time before the 1880 census. Any advice or assistance that you could give would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Many thanks in advance. Contact: Corey Ray Chapman. (Query placed 11 Apr 1999)

I am trying to locate information on my g- grandfather John Thomas WOOD(S). John was born in Dundalk, Ireland in Jan 1882. He and his family came to the Chicago area as a small child. John married his first wife Minnie (Ella) HUENECKE in 1903 in Chicago, Illinois. They had at least one son Robert Steven WOODS 1904, Chicago, Illinois. John played minor league baseball for Jacksonville, Fla., Brunswick, Georgia and Portsmouth, Virginia. In 1916 he played baseball for the Detroit Tigers. According to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, John lived in Green Cove Springs, Florida. I am sure that his first wife Minnie died young and John remarried. A short time ago we found out that John and Minnie may have had twin sons and that John left the Chicago area with the twins after he and Minnie seperated ( a fact that is still unproved). If John kept the twins or not we do not know but we think that they would have been born around 1906. If anyone has any information that they think would help us with our search, I would love hearing from you. I have a great deal on the Woods line that we would be willing to share here in the U.S. as well as in Ireland and England. Best of luck with your research.

Lula Alexandria KABLER (grandmother)is said to have attended a "convent" (girl school?) outside of Jxvl ca. 1870-80 where John William NEWMAN (grandfather) met and married her. Her father, Charles S. KABLER, was a surveyor for a railroad, I think. John William was definitely a railroad surveyor and is listed in the "Gateway Chronicles", 6/3/1892, in Sanford, FL, with the South Florida RR (thanks to Karen Jacobs-Sem. Hist. Soc.) Cha. S. K. died in Sanford. I think both worked for the railroads as they were being developed from JXVL to Sanford. As the RR were built on to Tampa/St.Pete and became the Sea Board Air Lines RR, John William surveyed ahead of them and ended up in Clearwater/Largo. He became associated with the Bellair Development Corporation, which Morton Plant, head of the SeaBoard Air Lines RR, used develop the still existing Belliar Hotel and town. I do not know where/when John William and Lula were married. If some kind soul knows of this "convent" or has any other opinions, pls help.
