Dorothy and Lamar,
Thanks for the information, Dorothy. I wish some one would tell us who John Baily Stell was named for.
Lamar, there is a Gresham-Fowler cemetery in Gwinnett. I should say there was one -it was plowed over. My g g g grandfather, Nathan Fowler was supposed to have been buried there. Would that Gresham be the same name as Grissom?
Silas King, an ordained Baptist preacher, came from Newberry Co.,S C, in the 1820's. He settled in Gwinnett Co., in Buford, and he was the first non-Indian to live where Buford is. He bought his land from Joseph Hampton, who won it in the Lottery. Hampton lived close to John King in Jackson Co. I call him John King of Kings Bridge for identification. This John King left a will in Jackson Co., early 1840's - he was a very old man when he died. Of course,the Hampton family married with Kings and Stells. One of Silas King's daughters, Sara Manervah, married one the the Bailey's who are kin to me. That is the Worthy Oliver Bailey group. Silas and some of his people are buried in Buford City Cemetery, which became an extension of the King Cemetery.
