I would like to know more about the family history of my paternal grandparents:
husband of Thelma Blakey(1919-1999);
father of Nick, Elizabeth, John(my dad), & Linda;
son of (I think) Fleming J Hadden(1885-1965) & Callie Shelton(1895-1980).
Fleming J Hadden is the
son of Joshua Hadden(possibly 1840-?)
& Elizabeth Frances Thigpen(1848-?).
Elizabeth's parents were Seaborn Thigpen(1824-1860) & Lucinda Coplin(1819-?). Beyond that, I don't have much info.
Joshua Hadden is a mystery so far. His father &/or grandfather may have been John Hadden(s).
Relevant areas in Georgia may be Hartwell, Hart, Wrens, Washington Co., & Jefferson. I'm not too sure about the places. Some of the family (Thelma & Asa) moved to La Porte Co., Indiana in the 50's.
Check the boards for the other surnames I've listed here if any of this is familiar to you. I'll post additional queries with some more specific info in the appropriate boards.
I have photos of relatives I don't know & some big branches are missing in my family tree, so please help if you can!
