Hi all,
Still looking to connect in Forsyth Co or any Co of GA. Looking to find info on my Gfather and parents/siblings.

Gfather John CHADWICK / CHADWICH was brn abt 1852 GA, died 1917 Bell Co KY at the age of 65 and lived in Anderson Co TN as of 1900.

Have heard that his parents were a John CHADWICK brn NC and Mary HODGIN / HODGINS / HODGENS / HUGGINS. His father also may have been a Mason. Was the Mason a lodge member or a construction Mason?.

Some family names who may have a connection: BASS, BULL, BLUE / BALLEW, CALLOWAY, GILLIAM, JAMES, KIMBRO / KIMBROUGH, McSPADDEN.

My Gfather John CHADWICK brn abt 1852 Ga may have married a KING or KELLY in Coweta Co GA abt 1870 and may have also been married at least 3 times.

Any info would be appreciated.
Roy Chadwick.
