WILLIS, DORTCH                 01-30-06
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?

AYERS, ODOM, ROBERTS        12-12-05
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.

MIXON, MESSER         10-15-04
I 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. 
I believe Lily was the daughter of Joseph A. and Zeppie MESSER, granddaughter of Alfred F. MESSER and Sarah Ann Elizabeth MOSS.  But I can find nothing about "Coy".   Perhaps that was his second name or a nickname?
The 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+ years.

MILLER                   09-26-04
 My 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?

WATERS       10-1-04
 Looking 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.

This 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.
