Hello, I became interested in my family history about 10 years ago. Unfortunately this was after the death of my father, so many of my questions would have probably been easily answered if I had asked the questions earlier.
My lineage is:
Grandfather: Raleigh Quick (1897 Newnan Ga. - 1972 Tx)
G Grandfather: Martin Quick (1868 Ga.-1962 Ok.) born in Fayette Cty. Georgia, moved his family to Stephens county Oklahoma abt 1902
GG Grandfather: William Quick (1839 Inman Ga. -1915 Senoia Ga.)
GGG Grandfather: Eli Quick (abt 1802-1877) born in Bennettsville, Marlboro, South Carolina, parents unknown. Married Drucilla Turner (1812-1884) also beleived to be born in Marlboro Cty, in 1828 in Fayette Cty Georgia where they lived on Drucilla's father's (Moses T Turner) farm.
I took the DNA test thru Ftdna about a year ago. in hopes of finding a link to Eli and his family, as of yet that has not been the case. I hope that more Quicks with ties to the early Carolina's will also take the DNA test in hopes to find our missing family.
