and family and all of our other fantastic family!

 Well because anyone can claim anything and others may be interested here is how we are linked.
Jerry Smith Jr.'s great grandfather was Charlie Smith of Maxeys, Oglethorpe, Georgia & he was our great grandfather too!

Howard Hewett
and family and all of our other fantastic family!




Well because anyone can claim anything and others may be interested here is how we are linked. Our 5th great grand uncle Nelson Wingfield, had Nubie Wingfield. Nubie married Lucretia Cohen, her niece Kate Cohen married Albert Gladman, whose niece was Ithelene Gladman
Ithelene Gladman married Moses Brown, whose nephew married Elvin Brown, who married Charlena Fitzhugh who was the mother to ... you guessed it Howard Hewett Jr. It should be noted that we are our relative was the step parent to Howard and his siblings.



Matthew Knowles, and family and all of our other fantastic family!



Well because anyone can claim anything and others may be interested here is how we are linked. Our beautiful grandmother's name was Reba Lockhart (Wingfield). Her father was Tom Lockhart, whose mother was Sallie Ball. Sallie's brother , Sam (sr) had a son named Kendrick whose daughter Georgia had a daughter named Ruby. Ruby married John David Knowles. John's father was of the same name and his father was named John Thomas Knowles whose brother was James "Ike" Knowles.

Now the correlation.....


Reference:
  • Gaylesville...and little "Blue Ivy"

  • 1900-2012 , Cherokee County, AL, USA submitted to family tree by Dale Orndorf.
In February 1867 James Isaac "Ike" Knowles was born in nearby Chatooga County, GA, the son of Henry & Elmira, who were probably former slaves. On July 11, 1898 Ike married Sarah Elizabeth Dixon from Alabama, the daughter of Alfred and Hannah, according to family history the latter being full-blooded Cherokee Indian.
The census of 1900 finds Ike and Sarah living in Cedar Springs, Cherokee County. Sometime before 1920 they're located in Gaylesville, by this time they have parented at least 8 children. Their eldest son Taylor (1899-1975) married Girlie Mae Inez Miller (1904-1983), they in turn had at least seven children. Their son Taylor J. Knowles (1922-1987) married Esther Mae Stone (1921-1996) and in 1951 they had a son Matthew.
If you haven't already guessed the celebrity to which we are referring, this next piece of the puzzle should give it away. Matthew married Celestine "Tina" Ann Beyonce.

Now exactly what does that make us to little Ivy? Lord only knows, but our prayers and love goes out to everyone whether we have found our familial link or are still working on it.

  1. I am so glad that you posted this blog. Because I have been trying to find the connection between Mathew Knowles and my family. Sarah Elizabeth Dixon Knowles is my great great aunt Fannie Mae Nicholson
    Dixon, grand daughter.I knew who her parents were but did not know her husbands name. Thank you so much for filling in the blanks for me. I am so happy right now. Thanks again; Yolanda Sanford
