I am delighted to hear from both of you! This is really exciting to me because last summer at our annual Hames/Haimes reunion we have at the Gum Branch Church in Winston Co., MS where Samuel E. Hames (brother of William Boyd and Hamlet Charles and others) and his wife Lettie Frances Long Hames first settled, we had a new relative attend who brought some pictures he had at his house. One was a picture of William Boyd Hames and his wife Susan! At first we had to do a little research to figure out who they were, but we were so excited to see a picture of Sam's and Hamlet's older brother. I've also been in touch with a descendant of Hamlet Charles, his ggggranddaughter Dianne Wright from GA. She has promised to share some of her history with me. Apparently Hamlet and his descendants owned quite a bit of land in the Kennesaw Mt. area at one time. Sam came on over to MS to settle in Winston Co. and is buried with his wife in the Antioch Cemetery near Louisville, MS. There is a Hames Rd. so named because his 4 sons all owned property in that area and their descendants still do. I will continue to follow your posts with interest. I have to be out of town for a couple of weeks but will definitely be back in touch. What states are you located in? Maybe you can plan to come to our next Hames/Haimes reunion. I sent an email to Hamlet's gdaughter and another of Sam's ggrandsons to let them know about you all. Thanks so much for sharing. Harriette Mastin, Vicksburg, MS P.S. The Boyd name keeps cropping up. Sam named his first son Robert Boyd. Hamlet's great grandson was William Boyd also. :-)
