My name is Karen. While I was doing some genealogy searching of my own, I came across your blog. As I read through your postings, I came across some information that was very interesting which I would like to inquire further with you. In your September 7, 2011 posting, you talked about your grandmother’s side of the family the Minters who were from Jakin, Georgia. That caught my attention because my family is from that area. As I read further, I noticed you had a posting on August 4, 2011 which dealt with slavery. You listed that the estate of Atticus Tucker owned slaves. I was wondering did he own these slaves in Jakin or somewhere around this area? I saw a name on the list ( Andrew), which is the same as my great-great grandfather. I’m wondering if there is a connection. You can reach me by email at Looking forward to hearing from you either way. Thanks.
