  1. My cousin's mom was an Echols. The family was in Forsyth County during the 1850 and 1860 censuses. I bet y'all are related.

    1. All of the Echols in Forsyth were probably related but I'm only connected because Mary Thomas (sister of my gg-grandmother) married into the family. If she's descended from Mary and James' only child, John R. Echols, then we're related!
