Norman Family of Lincoln County, Georgia
This site contains the ancestors and descendants of William Norman, a Revolutionary War soldier of Virginia, who migrated to Lincoln County, Georgia after the Revolutionary War. William was the grandson of Isaac Norman and Frances Courtney of Virginia through their son, Joseph. This site will trace William's descendants from Virginia to Georgia and beyond.
My name is Liz Nash. I am descended from William through his daughter Susannah. If you are a descendant of Isaac Norman and Frances Courtney, your input and information will be gratefully accepted. If you have a Norman web site, please allow me to link to your site and feel free to link to this one. I will try to include links to as many Norman sites as I can find.
The Norman Family Association, Georgia Division is an organization of William Norman of Virginia descendants There is a Norman family reunion every two years in Lincoln County, Georgia. The next reunion is scheduled for 2015. While the Association is primarily composed of the descendants of William Norman, all branches of the Isaac Norman and Frances Courtney line are invited to attend the reunion and to join our Norman Family Association. Dues are $7.50 per year and includes the family newsletter which is issued in February, June and October. The Association fiscal year is August 1 to July 31.
If you wish to join the Norman Family Association, have any suggestions, information to share or constructive criticisms, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have submissions for the Newsletter, email the information to Joseph T. Rei at email@example.com. Please feel free to share all information of interest to members of the Norman family. We especially need death notices, births and anecdotes of Norman descendents. If anyone has an interesting story about their Norman ancestor, please share it.
The Norman families have started a DNA project to determine scientifically how the various Norman may or may not be related. It is very exciting to see some of the results. We do need more Norman males with the last name of Norman who would be willing to participate. For details of cost and method, contact me. Be sure to check both sites.

The information on this site has been well researched and documented, but do not accept it as absolute proof. Much research has been done by many Normans, but there are always errors and differences. We will try to put the most reliable information on this site, but we do not say that it is absolutely correct. Credit is given to the following publications:

"The Scribe on Flat Creek," Vol. 1, Rita Bryant Turner, Ed. D., This work is a collection of letters and documents belonging to John Randolph Glaze which were found in a desk of his.

More important to the Normans, the desk also contained many letters written by the Lincoln County Norman and Glaze family relatives.
These two books give a vivid description of Norman family life from 1835 through the early 1900s and make the people very real. With the kind permission of the authors, I have included some excerpts from the letters on the appropriate individual pages.
