Family Affair

Welcome

This site was created to chronicle and share my genealogy research. It is also a tool for others that are searching for their family members and to see if there is any connection to my family. This is a project that is going to take years to complete. It has been a labor of love, a great deal of fun and quite stimulating.

If you are interested in the various surnames, you can start with the ones across the top of this page or you can look for them in the categories section to the right.

Please leave comments on any of the posts/articles that you read or email me using the form on the right. I do want your feedback, I will try to answer any question, and I desire your interaction. Love to know how to improve this site to better serve you,

Matilda McAllister

Matilda Horne McAllister McRae
There is a great deal of confusion when you try to research ancesters before they were entered into the U.S. Census. It is possible that Matilda was owned by a man named Saud McAllister in Montgomery County, Georgia. This maybe why her name was McAllister. I received information from another researcher that there was a young girl that was the same age as Matilda would have been at the time in the property records of Saud McAllister. The question would be if she was a Horn before being sold to McAllister. I was told by my Aunt Susie that her name was Matilda Horn. Her death certificate states that her mother's name was Susan House, but I have yet to find any other records on either of them, not even a brother named Andrew (Andar). I am still working on this for sure.

Thanks. This I believe is going to become much bigger than it is right now. A great deal of work, but so enlightening.
