I just got on Ancestry.com today - a few minutes ago. I specifically joined because I am gooing to write a 50,000 word book through www.nanowrimo.org
during the month of November.
Sometime in the early 1970s, I was hiking the Appalachian Trail and met an older gentleman who was squirrel hunting. Long story short, he told me there had been a Pink Berrong who lived in Tate City, GA and that he had disappeared somewhere in the mountains.
I have carried that story deeply etched into my mind for a good portion of my lifetime. I have thought many times that I should research and write about Pink Berrong. I have a friend in Dahlonega, GA, Jimmy Berrong who told me he had an uncle in Clayton, GA who knew or knew about Pink. I never followed up and I feel sure the uncle is probably gone now.
Anyway, I would be most appreciative for anything you might care to share or any research directions you might point me in. I am 65 and retired now, so I want to get down to the business of writing about Pink.
BTW, my maternal grand-mother's maiden name was Bryant - from the are of south Georgia, north Florida.
