Anne Neville, Queen of England


this lady (Queen) might be one of my ancestors.

Anne Neville Queen of England

One of the more enigmatic queens of England, we know precious little about her and her personal feelings. Was she a pawn in the strategies of her father and her husband? Or was she ambitious and a schemer? Did she know of her husband’s plans for taking the throne of England?

Anne Neville was born on June 11, 1456 at Warwick Castle. She was the younger of two daughters of Richard Neville, sixteenth Earl of Warwick and sixth earl of Salisbury who would later become known as the Kingmaker. Her mother was Anne Beauchamp, heiress to both the earldom of Warwick and to the Despenser properties, a vast inheritance. Anne and her sister Isabel were the paramount heiresses of their day.

Anne probably had her own establishment growing up, possibly as an extension of her sister’s household. The two girls would have been taught the essentials of becoming a medieval…

There is an oral family tradition that says these families have Native American ancestry.

I have just learned that Elmore county was part of Coosa County prior to the Civil War.

The interelated families (list above) lived, dies and buried in coomunities/area(s) which are included in — Tallapoosa, Coosa, and possibly Elmore Counties in Alabama.

Does anyone have solid Native American documentation on (ANY OF) the descendants of:

1) Ransom Middleton Meadows (1786, Warren County, NC -1863, Tallapoosa County, Alabama)

2) Sarah Leona Stephens (1791, Wilkes County, NC – 1872, Tallapoosa County, Alabama)

3) John Hardy (1825, Edgefield, SC – ?)

4) Frances Anne Sherrill (1768, NC – 1815, AL)

5) Diadema Peeples/Peoples (1833, Al – 1912, Coosa County, Alabama)

6) John Stephens (abt 1761, possibly NC – ?)

7) Nancy Peeples Browning (1806, SC – 1870, Coosa County, Alabama)

8) William Allen Lansing Hardy (1826 Coosa County, Alabama – 1880, Coosa County, Alabama)

These families are very well documented in both Colonial and Federal Records.

Ransom Meadows was a Slave owner, and like many white settlers moved in to lands made available by the forced removal of Indians from the southeast.

This particular region was originally the homelands of the Creek Nation.

It should be possible to obtain copies of documents from the courthouse of the counties these families resided in.

I have ancestors from Elmore, Coosa and Tallapoosa County. Both my maternal grandparents lived in Tallassee, Al. I too have a family oral history that my Mother’s mother Vera Donie Oliver Winningham, had native American ancestry. I have been researching her family ancestry. Her father’s direct Descendants are OLIVERS, and I have been researching her mothers descendants, who are ROBINSONS. I have found many Robinsons on tribal roles, but I have not found an ancestor yet that could possibly be native American.

Chastain bloodline could hold key to Alzheimer’s research

Chastain bloodline could hold key to Alzheimer’s research

“We’re the only family known with this gene,” says Chastain descendant.

“If we step up we can help everybody.”


Descendants of Pierre Chastain who in Pickens and Gilmer counties unroll their extensive family tree. Top researcher Dr. Allan Levey at Emory’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center believes studying the Chastain family’s genetics could lead to breakthroughs in the field.

It was July 12, 1700 when the ship Mary and Ann of London arrived at the mouth of Virginia’s James River. On board were Pierre Chastain and other French Huguenot refugees who left Gravesend, England for the New World.

Chastain, one of the ship’s 207 passengers, organized the transcontinental journey – but along with those

refugees on the hunt for a new life in a new land, Chastain brought along a genetic makeup that could lead to breakthroughs in Alzheimer’s research.

“The Chastain family bloodline defies anything,” said Dr. Allan Levey, director of Emory’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. “In terms of what we would consider a strong genetic trait, this family way beats the odds. I don’t know another family with such a high prevalence.”

Do you know of any CHASTAIN descendants?

Please, let them know about this article and health research project.
