Kay McMahan-Noska(1948-2004) posted her ggg-grandfather in
the GA FGS in Mar 2002. I found the site in Jul 2003 and was trying to
find connections to my BROOKS & COX g-grandfathers(I knew they were born
in GA). On a whim, I checked the 'Y' box and there was a George Remer
YOUNG. My dad's brother was George Reamer Young. I knew my g-grandfather
YOUNG's name was James Ellis and his wife was Ioan Marsh. He had a
sister, Nancy, who married a man named STRANGE. They had come from
Louisiana, just barely 75 miles from where I grew up(Texarkana). I had
only been at this about a year and Kay helped me so much. I credit her
with the breaking down of that brick wall.  I finally knew where to look
and I found wills, census', obits, gravestones and NPS Civil War Soldiers
and Sailors systems. There was also info at the LDS Family History
Center.  Kay was trying to find ancestors of George Remer so I am trying
to carry on for her.
