      Dear John,

      My name is Rod Hardee and I live in Roswell, Ga. I recently started working on a family genealogy and while searching on the web I found a file you contributed from the Griffin Weekly News about Robert A. Hardee. Robert A. Hardee was my great-grandfather. His wife was Mollie V. Dickinson. My grandfather, John Nall Hardee, was one of their sons. My father was Roswell Nall Hardee. He was born and lived his early years in Griffin before moving to East Point, Ga. John Nall Hardee married Lillian Estine Dickinson from Douglasville, Ga. They were first cousins I believe - explains alot of my family's behavior according to my wife.

      I went to Griffin a few weeks ago and visited the family lot where my grandmother and grandfather are buried at the Oak Hill Cemetery. I also visited the Dickinson lot while there and noted some information on the markers. If any of this information is of use to you I will be glad to send it.

      If you have any information you would be willing to share I would be most grateful, especially as if regards Robert Hardee and any of his ancestors. I am stuck!

      Thanks,
      -Rod
