    Ok, about to type it. Doesn't say Robert E. Lee like I thought it did byt my mother says she's always heard her whole life that we are related to him. doesn't really matter.

    Parents of Joseph J. McPherson were Pinkney McPherson and Amanda Turley of Cobb county, Willie O'Church, near Roswell, Ga. Parents of Martha Jane Whitmire, S.C. The Rogers and Lees came to GA in 1857 and located near Dallas Ga.

    Grandfather and Grandmother Rogers are buried at Mt. Zion Babtist Church south of Dallas, Georgia. Great Grandmother Lee is buried in the Dallas Cemetary. His grave is old cemented with conk shells placed in the cement over the top. He probably bought the conk shells from Charleston, S.C. He ran a commesary adnw ent to Columbia and Charleston to buy groceries, etc. Great grandmother Lee is buried in the Lee Cemetary near Whitmire, S.C. She died in Florida where she had gone to visit a brother and had been buried three days when Great Grandfather Lee received the news. He went in a wagon by himself and brought her home for burial in the Lee Cemetary. I think he must have loved her very much. She owned a Negro slave called "Black Mammy" and all the family loved "Black Mammy". "Black Mammy came to Georgia with the Lees and Rogers and Great Grandfather Lee gave her a home of her own when the slaves were freed. She is the only Negro in the Lee Cemetary.

    Ohh my hand hurts It's neat how they loved Black Mammy so much.

    Well that's still pretty darn exciting!

    you could like use that to start some major coversations.
    Unlike myself
    I mean, how exciting does this sound?: "hey did you know that I'm have polish?" or "Hey guys! Did you know that I'm 1/2 Polish, 1/4 Native Amercian, and 1/4 hispanic (from some unknown country)?"
