Hello Jack,
I am a descendant of Thomas J.Rich and Lettie Fann. I would like to know if you have any information on a question of what Martha Fann's maiden was. Some of my Rich family members believe Martha was a Rich.
Also, I would like to know if Stephen Cowart had a brother David born in 1802 in Georgia. He married a Harriet----- and have the folling children: Seaborn, Sarah, William, Lewis, Kittey, and Richard. David and Harriet were married in Decatur Co. GA., but some of their children were born in Early Co.
Beth
