You must be descended from James Render of Greenville, GA. His home still stands. I am descended from his oldest sister, Mary Render, who m. Joshua Callaway Oct. 15, 1795. Do you have a copy of the book, RENDERS AND THEIR RELATIVES by Pearl O. Smith. 1985. She has done an excellent job of the Render family including the Dowdells. I am very fortunate in having heirlooms of this Render family. I have the Church of England Prayer Book of Susannah Dicken who m. Joshua Render, the parents of the above James Render and Mary Render.
Would love to share info with others interested in the Render family.
