Family Cookbook
(Mary) Caroline (Boone) Alford has spent the last 15 years compiling her favorite family recipes - some 418 pages of mouthwatering delights! Barnes and Noble Bookstores may put it in their southern stores as a regional interest book. 

The title is Southern Cooking with Caroline. It has a lot of helpful information for beginning cooks, and all the steps are numbered for easy use. Knowing Caroline's family I can personally guarantee that this book is the only one you will need.
You can order it from her website at:
and she does accept payments via Paypal.

Most recent update to our family records - Caroline has been diligent in attempting to keep it current - somewhat difficult given the absolute number of marriages and babies. Thanks to Caroline.
2014 update

Trimble (Boone) Family
Aunt Winnie found this picture of a school in Hogansville taught by Frank Trimble and his wife Fannie. Grannie (Fannie Jones Glover) referred to them as Cousins. The picture was taken about 1890. On the reverse side was a listing of the names (click here for a pic of the reverse side)

Also, Caroline has done significant research on some of the Trimble papers.  See them here.

Rebecca Parrot Flask, 71, a resident of Haig Point, Daufuskie Island, SC and Haymarket, VA passed away peacefully on November 9, 2017 at the Capital Caring Adler Center in Aldie, VA.  Rebecca was born on November 26, 1945 in Newnan, GA to Ann Glover Parrott and Thomas Sargent Parrott, Jr., both of whom have predeceased her. She was also preceded in death by her brother, Dr. Thomas Sargent Parrott, III.

 Rebecca who was called Becky or Becky Knight was raised in Newnan where she enjoyed warm summers, swimming in the pool or nearby lakes, horseback riding, tennis, summer camps and the joy of living in a relatively small idyllic community. Following graduation from Newnan High School she entered and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Converse College, in Spartanburg, SC. Becky worked in Atlanta, GA for several years until she moved to Washington, D.C. to join the staff of Congressman John (Jack) Flynt, Jr. of Griffin, who represented Georgia's then 6th District in Congress. It was in Washington that she met Jon Flask who would become her husband of forty-five years. She is survived by her husband and daughter Ansley Flask French (Eric) and grandchildren Layla and Dylan.

New Stories

 While cleaning up some computer files, I found two more wonderful stories...  One was written by Aunt Mary Glover Nixon in April 1978 and put into a local time capsule.  It covers her memories of early Newnan.  This is a must-read.

A second story was a fiction/non-fiction story written by cousin Susan Glover Logan, titled Aunt Penny.  This was a play on names as it was about her memories as a child visiting Aunt Jenny (Virginia Glover Cook Graham)

Glovers of Marengo County

I have been searching for a copy of this definitive work of research for many years.. finally found it and was able to scan into pdf format.  This traces the Allen Glover and associated families.

Do you ever get the feeling that you might be a bit Irish?  I found some ancestors who were landed gentry - Mount Glover in County Cork Ireland.
