    As I mentioned above, my Grandmother (Father’s side) was Hattie May (or Mae?) Sutlive. Her parents were James Sutlive and Harriett Wardlaw. I would love to know which house in Fort Gaines, GA was her birthplace.

    By the 1940’s my Grandfather, Frederick Edward Cummings had been living in Atlanta for years (since 1911, I think). My Father, Winston Sutlive Cummings was born in Atlanta in 1912.

  3. Josephine Sutlive

    My name is Josephine L Sutlive. Mr deceased father
    was John L Sutlive. His grand father or great grandfather was one of the founders of Ft. Gaines.
    My sister Jane Sutlive Collins visited the Sutlive House and the museum several years ago. I am interested in knowing more of the Sutlive history as related to Ft. Gaines.
