DESHASIER / DESHAZER / DESHAZO / PATE / WILLOUGHBY (06/09/97)

Am seeking info on families of PATE and DESHASIER/ZO. These folks were tied up with the Aaron WILLOUGHBY descendents over in nearby Bibb and Pike Counties. The parents of Aaron DESHASIER were John and Mahala (Willoughby) DESHAZER. They married in Houston Co. July 1833. Particularly interested in the marriage of one Letha PATE to an Aaron DESHASIER. They married in Cowetta Co. but eventually moved to Fayette Co., GA. A "Milly" DESHASIER shows up in Fayette Co. on the 1870 census. Her age shows that she may quite possibly be their daughter. A young DESHASIER girl (age 2) is also shown on the Pulaski census on land owned by a Robert and/or William DESHAZO. I am curious about the spelling change of the DESHAZO name. Have not found anyone who knows anything about these folks yet!! So far I'm the lone researcher here!! Please help!

GRIFFIN / LINGO (07/07/97)

William GRIFFIN (born 1825) and his wife Mary LINGO (born 1832) lived in Twiggs Co., GA for many years. They had 10 or 11 children there and some records I have found say he was a Methodist preacher. My grandmother also thinks he may have been a State Congressman or Representative of some kind. At any rate, he was a longstanding member of the community and owned much land there.
