ATKINS, Joel C.
Seeking the parents of Joel C. Atkins, born July 3, 1805, in Virginia. Joel married Mary Austin sometime before 1825. Mary was born in Greenville, South Carolina. It is believed that they might have been married in DeKalb County, Georgia, in that Mary's parents lived there from the time they migrated to Georgia until their death. In 1842 the second DeKalb County courthouse burned, destroying all records except the Inferior Court Minutes (1823-1859) and one book of the Superior Court Minutes (1836-1843). The courthouse burned again in 1898. These fires most probably resulted in the lost of Joel and Mary's marriage license. Joel died August 11, 1876, in Fish Creek, Polk County, Georgia.

CARROLL, John & Lura
I am searching for information on Lura Cameron Carroll and her husband John Carroll. They were probably born around the 1860's. He died at a relatively young age --after he had sired quite a few children. Some of the daughters were--Hattie, Mamie (my grandmother), Gussie, Jimmie, Lottie. Some of the sons were--Stering (owned a retail store in Cedartown), Widson (died in 1949 when his car ran off the road into a creek and he drowned). I was told that after John died, the people of Cedartown made up money to move Lura and the children out of the country into Cedartown proper. The brick house still stands on the street right beside the viaduct on the road to Rockmart. My grandmother, Mamie, married Roscoe Mullinax, Sr. from Lake Creek. He and my father, Roscoe Jr. owned and operated a mechanic's garage in Cedartown for a number of years called Mullinax and Son. My father, mother and I moved away to Marietta 1951. I was told that the Carrolls are believed to have been buried "near the old shirt factory." Does anyone know for sure? I would like to know the couples' dates of birth and death; the names of all their children; and if the story of the townfolk building them a house is true. Any info at all would be appreciated. Thanks.

He moved to Texas in the early 1900's. All relatives received a blanket letter of apology to a Levi Freeman because, apparently, he was ostracized by the family due to either marrying a Cherokee woman or for being part Cherokee. My father Billy Sunday Freeman was born when my grandfather was 41. This was his second marriage and my grandmother's also, as both were widowed. Her name was Jessie Mooring (Scott by previous marriage) Freeman. My parents had us late in life as well so all of the people who might have information have passed on.

Goss, Joel Edward
I have been searching for my grandfather, Joel Edward Goss, every way I know how, but it appears he has literally "fallen off the face of this earth"!!. Joel Edward Goss, son of Joel Jasper and Emily Edney Masters Goss, was born in Polk County, GA on July 22, 1882. He married Sarah Goss Knight on Sept 28, 1902 in Polk County, GA; they had 8 children, all born in Polk County. Around 1926 or '28, he left Polk County with a female named Lillie Kinney and I have not been able to find anything since that date. I have researched at ancestry.com, have put messages on message boards, have e-mailed Gary Goss who seems to have the largest databases on Goss ancestry, talked with relatives in Polk County and other states, all to no avail. It was rumored that Joel Edward (Joe) left GA and either went to SC or NC. I have checked death records in both states, as well as GA, all to no avail. I just want to find out where Joe went, if he had another family after he left GA, and where his burial place is so that I and other family members can visit it. ANY help at all will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Haynie, Rosa M
The last time I have found her was in Paulding County on the 1900 census with her father it showed her to be 4 years old. He was living with his mother-in-law Martha Davis and was shown as W. A. Haynie (boarder). His real name was William Martin Haynie but somehow the initials got listed wrong. Later William Martin remarried Mary Ada Brown and lived in Polk. I have heard that Rose married but I do not know where or to whom. I have not had access to the 1910 census, therefore, I do not know if she was still with him then or not.

OBITUARY: Lake Letter, The Standard, Cedartown, Ga, Oct 18th, 1928, Page Two, Section Two
This Community was made sad Friday morning, Oct. 12th, when God saw fit to take Mr. Jas. H. Smith, 66 years of age. He was a member of Lake Creek Baptist Church, where he was a loyal and faithful member for many years. He leaves five sisters and two brothers to mourn his loss - Messrs. John and Tom Smith of Friendship, Mrs. Alice Crabb of Beaumont, Tex., and Mrs. Mary McWauell of Sylacauga, Ala., Mrs. Wetfurn Wilkins of Rome, **Mrs. Kate Henry of Prospect**, and Miss Rovia Smith of this place. The bereaved family have the deepest sympathy of the entire community. "
I just have a "hunch" she may have married in COBB Co Ga between 1870-1880 as she is not living with her widowed mother on the 1880 Paulding Co Ga census and her sister Sarah Jane married Elisha Clanton in Cobb Co Ga in 1872....
GG Aunt Kate died between 12 Oct 1928 and 03 Jul 1939 when her brother Thomas B. Smith died in Polk Co Ga.
I checked the 1920 and 1930 censuses for "Prospect, Jasper Co Ga, Prospect, Franklin Co Ga, Polk Co Ga, and all of Ga for Ruth, Catherine, Kate, R, C, K with last name Henry and came up with zilch.
Is there another "Prospect, Ga" ???
Aunt Kate's parents were James Davenport SMITH & Mary Martha Elizabeth [SHAW] who married in 1850. All of the above birthdates were from their family Bible pages my Great Grandma Mrs Alice Idonia [Smith] CRABB copied from whoever had it when the family held a Smith Reunion in Polk Co Ga held 30 Jul 1939....but still, they could be off a little...?
Husband's of Aunt Kate's sisters:
Mary Elizabeth married Mr ___ McWauell (spelling wrong ???)
Sarah Jane married Elisha Clanton & died in Alabama
Arrovia "Rovia" married Thomas Riley Mullinax after 1928
Alice Idonia married Charles White Crabb & died in Texas
Lillian Doveye married James Wilburn Wilkins & died in Fla
I don't know who Susan Frances married but per her mother, she was still living in 1900.
Wives of Aunt Kate's brothers:
James Henry never married (always lived with sister Rovia)
Thomas Butler Smith married Mary Alma [Moseley]
I don't know who John Gibson married
I don't know who William Washington married but per his mother, he was still living in 1900.
My GG-Grandpa James Davenport Smith died in June 1879 in Paulding Co Ga and my GG-Grandma Mary Martha Elizabeth [Shaw] died after the 1900 Polk Co Ga census was taken.
.......Do you recognize anyone????
.......If so, I'd sure like to hear from you!!!

My mother's grandfather was Richard Pierce resided in Albertville, Al. When he died it was reported that his body was placed on a train and shipped to Ga. and Indians met the train and buried him in Cedartown, Ga. This would be in the early 1920's. His wife Mary Bonds Pierce is buried at Pleasant Grove in Albertville, Al. born 1861 died 1922. My dad's grandfather was Jim England in Lawrence/Winston county, Al. He married a Mary Nicholson whose family was reported to be Cherokee escaped from the trail of tears. I think Nicholson's wife was a Peggy or Patty Farley. We have a picture of her in the family. Also one of my greatgrandmother's married a Sewell and was reported to be stolen from a stockade in Ga. during the trail of tears and they resided in Lawrence/Winston Co. around the Bankhead Forest. The England's owned a lot of property where the Pinetorch church sits and a lot of my ancestors are buried there. I would appreciate any information you could give me.

was my husband's grandfather. He was born in Floyd County around 1899 according to his death certificate. His parents were Newton Cicero Robbins and Mary Elizabeth West. Mary had been married before. She first married John Strickland in 1875. They had three children before she found out her husband had several more wives and children. She married Elmore Robbins, (NC's brother) in 1887. He died and she married Newton around 1891, but we have not found a marriage certificate for them. Three of her four marriages were recorded in Polk County, GA. Her fourth marraige was to Phillip J Costner in 1913. We are looking for information on this Robbins family.
Newton and Elmore's parents were William Robbins and Caroline Brown. They were married in Union County, GA in 1858. W. Elmore Robbins was born in 1861 and his brother Newton Cicero Robbins was born in 1867. Would like to learn more about the family. Willing to exchange information.

Self, Samuel C/HH/wm age 55 Ga/Ga/Ga
Self, Maggie/wife/wf age 43 Ga/Ga/Ga

Self, Eula/dtr/wf age 10 Ga/Ga/Ga/single
SELF, RUBIE/dtr/wf age 03 Ga/Ga/Ga/single
Green, Maya/other/male Ga/Ga/Ga/single/ "at home"

Mrs Ruby [SELF] Smith and her husband John Gipson SMITH -I'm waylaid every way I turn! My GG-Uncle John Gipson/ Gibson SMITH was buried at the "family cemetery near Cave Spring, Ga, on Sunday, 04 Jun 1933" according to his 03 Jun 1933 obituary in the Gadsden (Al) Times. He has a sister and a brother buried at the New Prospect Cemetery - is this in Cave Spring or Rome? He was living in Gadsden, Etowah Co Al when he died but, frustratingly, his Alabama obituary does not name his wife or his 2 married daughters Louise and Ruby Alice. His wife was Ruby A. [Self] daughter of Samuel C. Self & Maggie [unknown] shown on the above 1880 Polk Co Ga census and Ruby was 3 years old. I cannot find her death record so I'm hoping she is buried beside GG-Uncle John.....???
If you know anything about any of the children of Samuel & Maggie SELF I would be so deeply grateful if you would share it with me as it might lead to information on Ruby and her daughters.
Thankyou so very much for any help! 5-14-2003

SMITH, John A
I am searching for any SMITH family members who may have knowledge of my great grandfather James A. SMITH and his wife Melissa Riley SMITH. They came from Franklin County to Polk about 1856-1857 and apparently had two children when they were in Polk County (at Cedartown) my grandfather Alfred Mathew Smith born 28 July 1857 and his sister Julia E. Smith born 7 December 1858. They were living in Fayette County Alabama on the 1860 census where they died. Why did they leave Franklin County to go to Polk County? Were there other SMITH relatives there? And did any other SMITH family members move to Fayette County with them?

TOLBERT, Bud
Information on my grandaddy's death certificate lists his father's name as "Bud Tolbert". Grandfather was born in 1885 in the western part of Georgia. There are no "Bud Tolberts listed on the 1880 census, but there is a B.F. Tolbert, 24 years old, wife Anna, age 20 and a son named Tom listed. Could this be Bud? Does anyone have information on this line? I have hit the "Brick Wall"
