"Henry Co. Query" in the subject line.
do not live in Alabama and cannot do personal research for you. Thank
I am trying to find out
where by ggrandfather and mother are buried. Their names were Jeremiah
B. Willis and Nancy Ann Marilda Dortch Willis
They lived in Henry County
in the Cureton's Bridge community. They moved there in 1858 from Georgia
and had a few hundred acres of land.
I have searched all the
cemetery records online in Henry and Dale Counties. He died in 1868
and I figure in those days they wouldn't have carried his body very far
to be buried. Are there any records that I could search to find this out?
I am seeking information
on Sarah A. Ayers. She was born 14 April 1837 in GA and died 18 Nov
1927 in Henry County. She had a brother named Orrin J Ayers, born 1833
and died in the WBTS in 1864, He was married to Rhode Elizabeth Odom. Sarah
married George M. T. Roberts 2 Dec 1856 in the home of Aaron Odom.
I want to assume that her parents were William Ayers and Sara McKissack
but no proof.
Any information as to
her parents and/or other siblings would be so greatly appreciated.
Would make this old and
fading heart of mine so very happy.
am trying to learn more about a "Coy MIXON" who married Lily/Lilla Mae
, in around 1925. I found them in the 1930 census living in
Geneva County with 2 sons William (or Williard?) and Marvin R. age 5 and
4 respectively, and a daughter named Wilma age 2.
believe Lily was the daughter of Joseph A. and Zeppie MESSER, granddaughter
of Alfred F. MESSER and Sarah Ann Elizabeth MOSS. But I can
nothing about "Coy". Perhaps that was his second name or a
MESSERs and MIXONs were among the early settlers of Henry County, probably
arriving some time in the 1820s (they were neighbors at the time of the
1830 Henry County census). Although they probably took different
routes getting to Alabama, these two families have been closely associated
ever since, with several marriages across the families over the past 100+
Whitehurst Brickwall is Elizabeth, mother of:
i. JOHN WESLEY WHITEHURST, b. 10 March 1793, Tarboro (Edgecombe)
WHITEHURST, b. Bef. 1790; d. Leon Co., FL.
iii. PELLATIAH L WHITEHURST
(when and where) was she married to? There are a lot of Whitehurst researchers
and no one knows the answer to this question!
for the family of the Martha Duke(s) who married Seaborn S. Whitehurst,
1862 in Henry Co., AL.
ancestors, Lewis MILLER and Lucretia PHILLIPS were married in 1824 in Wilkes
County, GA. They moved to Early County, GA., where
evidently Lewis MILLER, a Revolutionary Soldier, died. They were
the parents of seven children, one of which was my gr-gr grandmother,
Lucinda MILLER, born either 1825 or 1827. Another son was Thomas
MILLER. By 1860 Lucretia MILLER and her son, Thomas MILLER and his
family were living in Henry County, Alabama. Lucretia lived, so I
have been told, until 1910/1911. I understand that this family is
buried in the Mt. Zion Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery with markers.
Are there any members of the MILLER Family still living in Henry County
today? Is there anyone who can copy the MILLERS in the Mt. Zion Primitive
Church Cemetery for me? Are the records of Mt. Zion Primitive Church
still in existance?

for my ancestors. Trying to connect with ancestors of John Waters that
was in Dale co. in 1850 had a son James E. There was a James E. Water on
the 1860 in Henry Co that married Miranda Toole in Early Co Ga.in 1856
. Wondering if these 2 James E Waters are one in the same people.
Their place of birth and date of birth match.
is my only link to Henry Co. and the only info I have on this family so
I hope someone can help me! I am looking for info pre 1860 as my Wm. Middleton
Nichols was in Perry Co. after that and died shortly after returning from
the Civil War.
