Where are the other descendants of Samuel Lynes [1720]?

Well, surely he had more than ONE son from whom we all descend.  There were Isaac and Moses, and who all else, we don't know.  We are still confirming, verifying, looking to validate who is on the tree and sort it out.  In the meantime, Margaret wrote two days ago,
"After doing some additional review of my notes collected yesterday I see where I picked up some death dates on some of the Georgia Lines family. The one descendant of Isaac Lines of Georgia who seemed to have left an heir was Samuel. It looks like Samuel may have also had a son, Samuel J., born after his father died. This branch of the family seems to have stayed with the Lines spelling of the surname. A quick peek at the 1850 census this morning shows a Lines in both Alabama and Florida with a birthplace in Georgia. I won't spend my time on that but thought you might find it interesting."
I wonder if there is another branch of the family somewhere who has Samuel Lynes [1720]'s bible,  journal, letters, and hat?  Maybe they have more unpublished colonial records.  Let's find them!
