kjoiner on “Joiner / Joyner Family”

Looking for the parents of Thomas Joiner Born 1785 in NC. Thomas migrated down to Burke COunty Georgia where he married and raised a family. In census records he is listed as born in NC. There are different researchers that say different things as to who Thomas’ father was. I am just looking for a source with evidence. Unfortunately there were SO many Thomas Joiners it is hard to sift through.




cbrantigan on “Richard H Dozier”

Richard H Dozier was born in North Carolina in about 1815. He attended medical school at University of Pennsylvania in 1834. He died in 1861. Some believe that his father was also Richard H Dozier who was a doctor as well. I’m looking for any biographical information available on these two gentlemen.
