I am trying to find the parents of my GGrandmother Lousia Baker. She was born c. 1841 in either GA or AL. She first married a guy by the surname of Parker then she married Obediah Levi Sanders Robinson in 1873 in Coweta Co., GA.
The only lead I have found is an 1850 census page 907 for Meriwether Co., GA. taken in Oct. 1850. household 907. It list John Baker age 32 his wife Jane age 30 with several children one of which is Louisa (sic) Baker age 8, which this is the correct age for my ggrandmother. Another give away is my aunt that just past on a few week ago at the age of 91 says that her grandmother had a sister named Mary Easton (Easton being her middle given name.) A child by the name of Mary E. is listed in this census at the age of 1.
Could you tell me if the state of GA had marriage bonds and how much it would cost to get copies of them?? I did find that John Baker married Jane Bussey on Feb. 22, 1838 in Meriwether Co., GA. page 88 of marriage book A. I would likd to know some names of both Bakers and Bussey's that lived in Meriwether Co., GA around that time frame.

MEALER, George W.
I am researching George W. Mealer, he is my grandfather and he stated in his bible that he was born in Harris County in 1850. He is on the Meriweather County Census in 1870. My father was born there in 1892. All of my grandfathers children were born in Meriweather and most were on the census through 1910. His first wife was a Mary Crews and his second wife was Elizabeth Anderson who is my grandmother. I have not located George's burial place but believe it to be Primitive Baptist Church Yard. The Anderson's had a farm that FDR bought his produce from. A Williiam Mealer had a will that I found but no mention of George. He had a daughter by the name of Georgia and she married a Clark. Any help you can give me on this would be appreciated.

I am researching: PHILLIPS, BURNETTS, DENNYS, FANTS, BUCHANANS. I have been getting information very slowly on them, but my "Brick Walls" are WILLIAM H. ROWE AND LOUISE DAVIS. What I do know was they were born 1865-19\875 in Meriwether County, Georgia. William, I am pretty sure was born in Warm Springs. They are listed on the 1920 Meriwether County Census as William Franklin Rowe age 47 and Lousia Francis Davis Rowe age 49, children John Dempsey age 23 and twins Clayton and Clarence Rowe age 16. I know they lived there at that time. On a Troup County 1930 Census they are listed as William H Rowe age 57 and Louise Rowe/ age 57 / children twins Clayton and Clarence Rowe. I am sure the other son died during this that time.. There was another son named Jeff (maybe Jefferson Davis) I was told about another son that died at 6 or 7 years of age. Clayton Rowe was my Father born May 21, 1905. If you have any information on the Davis's or Rowe's - Please help me! This brick wall is getting higher and higher.
LA JEAN ROWE PHILLIPS 4-28-2003
I'm trying to find information about Narcissus Stokes. I've been told she married Jim Heard and had a child Mattie Elizabeth Heard. She was born before 1838 in Manchester according to family lore. There's a possibility that she was Creek or Cherokee, but I can't find anything about her. Do you have any records that might help point me in the right direction? If the facts are correct, she was my great, great grandmother. Thanks,
Looking for info on a family named Taylor. They lived in Meriwether Co. in the late 1820's to 1850's. Reuben was born in SC in 1796, so was his wife, Mary abt. 1803. They had 13 or 14 children, including a set of twin girls. Amanda-1828, Seaborn-1831, Elizabeth-1834, Sarah-1835, John N.-1836, Catherine-1837, Frances-1840, Emeline-1843, Ardessa & Narcissa-1844, William P.-1845, Thomas J.-1848 and Martha-1851. Reuben died in 1856 or 57. Then the family disappears. Thanks for any help you can give.
Glenda P. Garner 7-12-2003
and Mary Evoline (Curlee) Thompson are buried in a family cemetery in northern Meriwether Co. near Goldmine. This cemetery does not appear on any county records. I visited the cemetery in the 1970's with Bill Lowery who lives close to the cemetery on the Coweta Co. side. At one time a road passed by the cemetery and their house, but in the 1940's the pattern of the road was changed. When we visited in the 1970's, the cemetery was grown up with pine trees and was very unnoticeable since there were no tombstones. Although no graves in the cemetery were marked, some did have field stones. Some are probably graves of young children of William and Mary Evoline who did not reach maturity. Last July 1, 2001, I talked to Bill Lowery who stated that he could no longer find the cemetery. Any help finding this cemetery or information on the family will be greatly appreciated.

Seeking any information on Robert Walker who married Mary Germany in Pike Co., Ga. in Dec. 1827. He was on tax records as early as 1825. Robert and Mary were on the census record for 1830 and 1840 (I think, there were two Robert Walker's in Pike Co.) then disappeared. Their only known son, Henry Houston Walker, moved to Tallapoosa Co., Al. before 1860, returned to Meriwether Co. and married in 1861 then went back to Tallapoosa Co., Al. They stayed there until the death of his wife - then Henry brought the children back to Meriwether Co. where his wife's family lived. WHO WAS ROBERT WALKER??? WHERE AND WHEN WAS HE BORN?? WHO WERE HIS PARENTS?? Any help greatly appreciated.
