  1. Hi, William:

    We don’t have access to this resource. It doesn’t appear to be a published item, and it doesn’t appear to be an item held by our Special Collections. You might need to contact the author Brenda King McNair directly. We don’t have any email listed for her; you may try your genealogy message boards for the information. Sorry we can’t help you out!

  2. Last year I got a copy of the Earnest family history by Brenda King McNair. Page 7 Was missing could you make a copy of Page 7 and email it to me. My email is: thanks. Wiliam Jerome McNeese aka Willie Clayton Earnest

  3. Thank You Thank You!! This is Wonderful News, But would like to see more from the Jackson Hearld…Or perhaps The Oconee Enterprise or The Walton News.
