Keeping track of family relationships can be complicated and it's sometimes hard to figure out how one person is related to another, especially when you come upon second, third or fourth cousins. We hope the chart below will help.
CA Common Ancestor C Child
GC Grandchild GGC Great Grandchild
S Sibling (Brother/Sister) N Niece/Nephew
GN Grand Niece/Nephew GGN Great Grand Niece/Nephew
#C Cousin Relationship, e.g., 1C = First Cousin, etc.
#R # of times removed, e.g., 4R = 4 times removed, etc.
a.. The box marked CA on the chart in the upper left-hand corner is the common ancestor of two people.
b.. Identify the relationship of the first person to the common ancestor, e.g., child, grandchild, 8th great grandchild, etc. Find that box on the top row.
c.. Identify the relationship of the second person to the common ancestor, e.g., grandchild, great grandchild, 3rd great grandchild, etc. Find that box in the left-hand column.
d.. Follow the column straight down from the top row and follow the row straight across from the left-hand column. The relationship of the second person to the first person will be the box where the two lines meet.

1.James born 1831 in Bourbon County who married  Mary Kennedy  Mary
2.William Thomas Smith born 1838
3.Sarah born 1843
4.Louisa E. born Feb 2, 1844 married Thomas Sharp

There were 4 more children born to William and Jane.
Jane had several brothers in the same area; James, Alexander and Matthew

Do you know who Elizabeth's parents were? I have several Elizabeth Snapps in
my database, but the one that fits the best is Elizabeth daughter of Samuel
Snapp and Nancy Richey. She was born abt 1847 in Nicholas county.
I am trying to find the family of Stark MARTIN, he married Elizabeth SNAPP Nov 25, 1869 they had the following children:Homer, Herman, Luella, Jesse, Nancy, Isabell, John, William and Matilda. Anyone researching this family? Would gladly exchange info with you.

A Love Poem
Susie Lee done fell in love;
She planned to marry Joe.
She was so happy 'bout it all
She told her Pappy so.
Pappy told her, "Susie gal,
You'll have to find another.
I'd just as soon yo' Ma don't know,
But Joe is yo' half brother"
So Susie put aside her Joe
And planned to marry Will.
But after telling Pappy this,
He said, "There's trouble still...
You can't marry Will, my gal.,
And please don't tell your Mother,
But Will and Joe and several mo'
I know is yo' half brother"
But Mama knew and said, "My child,
Just do what makes yo' happy.
Marry Will or marry Joe
You ain't no kin to Pappy.
OOPS, I should have stated that it was the Nicholas County, Kentucky 1860
census on my Smith/ McNear query.

Greenshade Cemetery Assn. has a "Greenshade Day" on the first Saturday in
May, Decatur Co. Ga.. It is a Pot Luck noon meal and time for visiting. It
would be wonderful to find some living descendants or relatives and have
them attend next May. I believe at least two of the interred soldiers
(Suddeth and Daughtery) came from Nicholas Co., maybe more. Any suggestions
appreciated. Glenn Morrison

Dedication of Civil War Grave markers Saturday Sept. 28th ll a.m.
The Decatur Co. Historical Society sponsored a dedication of a marker
for the graves of 7 Union Soldiers buried in Greenshade Cemetery 3 miles
west of Fowlstown GA. on Greenshade Road. The men died in 1865 and their
graves have never before been formally identified. Within limiited
circles the location of the graves of Union Soldiers at Greenshade
Cemetery has long been known, but the passage of time has dimmed the
memories. In 2001 Jack Wingate in his role as historian, identified the
problem to the Historical Society and asked if there was a way for those
buried there to be identified and a proper U.S. Government marker
installed at the graves.
The U.S. Army unit involved was identified as the 7th regiment KY
Volunteer Cavalry. With reduced forces the unit arrived in Thomasville
GA from Macon via Albany on May 9, 1865. Lt. Scott and 50 men remained
there while Lt. James Odin and 25 men were sent to the vicinity of
Bainbridge, arriving May 11 or 12, 1865. Their purpose was to receive
government property and parole former Confederate Soldiers. Brigidair
General McCook and most of his 500-man command went on to Tallahassee
FL. on May 10, 1865 to receive the surrender of FL. Lee had surrendered
April 9 and Johnston on April 26, 1865 thus ending the Confederacy.
The deaths of the 7 men buried in Greenshade Cemetery, est 1829, was not
formally recorded in the official record. It was simply recorded: Died;
date and place not known". When the detachment in Bainbridge later in
June got word that they were to go home and me mustered out of service,
they simply gathered themselves up and went homeward untroubled by an
need for final reports to headquarters. The regiment was mustered out in
KY on July 10, 1865. They had been mustered in at Paris, KY August 16,
Research by the KY Dept of Military Affairs showed that all casualties
of the 7th Cavalry Regiment were accounted for but the 7 men of Company
B. Placement of an official marker on their gravesites corrects a long
standing lack of recognition.
Mrs. Martha McLaughlin lived across the road just west of Greenshade
Cemetery on the family plantation. The detachment of Co. B. soldiers was
camped just across the road to the east of the cemetery. Traditon holds
that she provided food and some nursing aid ot the been as they died of
"fever". It is believed that they died in early June of 1865. Martha was
35 at the time the detachment encamped near her home. She lived from
1830-1902. She related her experiencees to her daughter in law Emma Fain
McLaughlin who lived 1867-1947, She passed the knowledge along ot Mary
Frances Greer who lived 1911-1996. Mrs Greer related the information to
Jack Wingate. All 3 women are buried at Greenshade. A government marker
was sent and has been erected on the sight. The men of the 7th Cavalry
were raised at large which means they came from many places surround
Paris, KY. The reason I feel so strongly about finding the ancestors of
these men is that one of them is buried on the plot with my ancestors
the Robert Wilson Family. They did nurse this soldier. I don't know
which one is buried with them. However it is written down in my
grandmother's genealogical information with her family the Wilson's. If
I can help anyone more with this information, please let me know. I can
put you in contact with the man who did all the research to get this
done. The name again of the men buried at Greenshade are as follows.
Pvt. George P. Daughtery 1834-1865
Corp. James McMann 1816-1865
Bugler William Z. Merton 1836-1865
Pvt. John Sharp 1833-1865
Corp. John Shaw 1836-1865
Corp. James Suddeth 1833-1865
Pvt. John West 1823-1865
