Frady kin of the North GA Mountains; some in AL

The Frady family who lived in Union Co. and White Co., GA and neighboring areas were akin to several families mentioned in this neat new book. Families such as Nix, Harkins, West, Duncan, Ownbey, Owenby, Marshall, and several others are mentioned.

Mainly, this book records a good deal of folk history of related families of the North Georgia Mountain counties, and Smoky Mountains of NC and TN. It includes some 200 true Appalachian stories of humor and various family histories, and some genealogy resources for these mountain regions.

It is called "High Humor Of The Hills," and I only list it here as a resource on family and folk history. Also includes some tables about mountain pioneer families. Here is the link to it:

PS: This is not an overall genealogy reference book, nor strictly relegated to genealogy research... but more of a focus on mountain family folklore and humor of NE GA, and western NC and SC. Several related families of interest to us are mentioned. The only "hard-fact genealogy" in it is a listing of pioneer settlers of Union Co. in NE GA. But it is still a priceless record to have, about the lives and times of several related mountain families and the humorous things which happened to them. Some of these Frady kin migrated to AL.

Many near or distant are written about in these true tales; some are told about anonymously. Areas include Hiawassee, Young Harris, Crooked Creek, Brasstown, Arkequah, Choestoe, Trackrock Gap, Blairsville, Owltown, Coosa, Dooly, Ivy Log, Gum Log, Plott Town, Cleveland, Mossy Creek, Frogtown, Lumpkin Co., etc.
