704 There seems to be a lot of confusion on the many early Vannoy lines. I have found at least three Susan/Susannah Vannoys, in addition to the Susan/Susannah Vannoy who married George McNiel on 21 Nov 1822.
Marriage bond # 166429 shows Susan Vannoy married George McNiel on the above date. The census records from 1850, 1860, and 1870 show Susan and George together with children. A grave marker at McNiel-Faw-Riggs Cemetery in Millers Creek reads: "In Memory of Susan McNiel, Aged 80 Year And 10 M." No birth or death years were inscribed (at least none that were visible). George is buried beside her.
This pretty much fleshes out her life since her marriage to George. However, finding her parents has proven difficult so far. Other sources for leads on her parents include:
"Genealogy of the McNiel Clan" by Johnson J. Hayes in 1940, which shows the following:
Page 2: "(4) George 3, b. 1803; m. Nov. 21, 1822, Susan Vannoy, dau. of Andrew Vannoy."
Andrew Vannoy and Susannah Shepherd did have a daughter named Susannah (b. 22 Sep 1799), but according to Denise L. McNeil's write-up in "The Heritage of Wilkes Vol. II (page 496)," this Susannah did not marry until 14 Feb 1849 when she "became the second wife of Rev. Tobias Long."
Hayes page 16: "George McNiel 3, b. May 17, 1802, d. April 21, 1878; m. Susannah Vannoy, dau. of Jesse and Mary Kilby Vannoy. Her brother, Rev. John Humphrey Vannoy married Rebecca McNiel, a sister of George 3."
The Wilkes Heritage book (p. 498 also by Denise McNeil) lists 13 children and Susan is not among them.
There is another a write-up in the Wilkes Heritage book by Mary Hayes (p. 502-503) which lists a child of Nathaniel and Elizabeth Ray Vannoy as Susannah Vannoy (4 Nov 1790-21 May 1873). According to Mary, this Susannah married Richard Parks and did not have children.
This pretty much rules out all known Susan/Susannah Vannoys as being the same one who was born abt 1803 and who married George McNiel. A final lead presented in the Wilkes book (also presented by Mary Hayes on p. 500) is that "Another possible child of Daniel and Sarah [Vannoy] is Susan Vannoy (about 1803 - about 1883)." This is the lead I am currently trying to verify. 
Vannoy, Susan (I333)
705 There was a fire in 1876 that destroyed almost all of the records for the town of Chester.

The response from The Church of St. John the Evangelist to a letter of request on 25 Feb 2006 states that there was "no record" for the marriage of James Reilly and Maria Cady in 1870.

Mr. Lester Thomas Rogers, Sexton of the Cemetery is due an honorable mention in connection with the survey of this cemetery. It is from his personal knowledge that many comments were added to the existing inscriptions thus enhancing the importance of this survey. Three days he took the Cemetery Plat and guided the surveyor from plot to plot and grave to grave explaining details not visible. The identity of unmarked graves by him was most remarkable.

713 This collection is taken from NARA microfilm publication M804, which includes an estimated 80,000 pension and bounty-land warrant application files based on the participation of American military, naval, and marine officers and enlisted men in the Revolutionary War. Most of the records in the files are dated between 1800 and 1900. The files are part of Record Group 15, Records of the Veterans Administration.
The records in this collection include entire pension files for soldiers and sailors who served in the Revolutionary War. Unlike selected service records , which were typically chosen subjectively for genealogical content, these records reveal more details about each veteran's history and service, as well as more information about his family, state of health, and life after the war.
If you know the state for which a man served, you can locate him through the alphabetical hierarchy in the browse menu. Select the state, the first letter of his last name, then locate his surname, followed by his given name in the next section of browse titles.

Deed Book 3 (Mixed dates)

Deed Book 3 begins in the 1730's, meanders backwards and forwards in time to the 1710's and 1750's, and then jumps abruptly into the first years of the nineteenth century. It contains the oldest group of deeds, which were recopied by the register and so noted. The recopying of the oldest deeds in Deed Book 3 resulted in the misinterpretation of the date of writing, presenting, and recording in the deeds. The reader will see that from time to time the dates of presentation in court are later than those of the original recording. One solution to this involves the practice of observing the old calendar versus the new. For instance, in Deed Bk. 3, pg. 13, it lists the dates as 19 Nov 1739, 1 Jan 1739 and 26 Mar 1739. The most reasonable explanation for this discrepancy is that the two latter dates should be written 1739/40, a facet of dating that was ignored by the nineteenth century clerks who recopied these deeds. At times, however, there is no explanation for a discrepancy in the sequencing of dates. Such must be attributed to scribal error. [A note at the beginning of the book says]: According to note p. 22 the below were copied herein in 1800. The middle of this book pp. 86 to 123 contains the earliest deeds of record in this county. They date from 1696 to 1713. The beginning from 1735 to 1740. The end from 1796 to 1805. Book two has 1761 to 1790 with a few re-recorded 1704 etc. deeds as on pp. 327 and 416 (1719).

717 This person's ancestry is unknown, but time and place suggest that Martin and Sarah could have been his parents. If you have more information, I would be excited to hear from you!

Note that James is possibly in the household of Martin Rich in Emanuel County in the 1820 census. That same year, he is listed in neighboring Burke County with winnings from the land lottery. Is this the same person that moved down to Decatur County?

Bethany Baptist Church Cemetery is located off of Spring Creek Highway approximately 10 miles from Bainbridge, GA. Take Spring Creek Highway west from Bainbridge, approx. 10 miles, turn left right after the Kendrick Volunteer Fire Department. It sits on the right side of the road, behind the Bethany Baptist Church. This cemetery was last read in the 1950s, so some of the head stones that I was not able to read was problably read at that time. I started at the back of the cemetery in the older section first and then worked my way forward going down each row, and ended at the South side of the cemetery right behind the church. There are 6 headstone with no information and 16 headstones that were unreadable.
