Hi Cousins!

RE: John D. McRea, Sr.

I am looking for information about John D. McRea, Sr. (born around 1804, I think in Petersburg East Ward Township, Dinwiddie County, VA). He was married to Martha J. (place of birth, SC)known as 'Marthy'.
He moved to GA (? date unknown, was listed in the 1850 GA Census as being a brick mason, and lived in Division 15 of Cherokee County. He and Martha are buried in the city cemetary in Kennesaw GA.

I can trace my father's family back to John, but then I hit a stone wall. (My grandfather George Lester, changed the spelling of my father's last name to "McRae" due to a family squabble; my father and I are the last descendents to use the "McRae" spelling, as my father was the only male to marry and had only one child - namely me).

Any help would be greatly appreciated. My father is now 84, and I would really like for him to know more about the lineage before much more time passes.

Thank you.
