Seeking documented proof that John PACE (b.1801) was the son of Stephen PACE (b.1779). They moved to Heard County sometime after 1826; both appear in the 1860 census of Heard County. Believe Stephen died in October 1864. Would appreciate any leads, as I understand the courthouse burned in 1894, destroying earlier documents (such as Stephen's will if he had one).

My grandmother had two brothers who both died young, probably in the 1880's or 1890's. Their names were Mims Snow WARE and Andrew Davis WARE. They were the sons of Henry G. WARE and Emily Parker SNOW. Henry G. WARE died in 1883, probably in Heard Co. Sometime after that Emily married a Mr. MORROW and moved to Valdosta. So the brothers could have died in either place. Need to find place and date of these deaths. Any help is appreciated.

I have a lot of information on HILL families of Heard County. There is a previously published lineage mistake that I would be happy to clear up for any researchers who are working on these families. Heard County researchers often refer to the book entitled "Heard County History 1830-1990", compiled by The Heard County Historical Society. This particular book contains a major mistake on the ancestry of William L. Flournoy "Bud" HILL, son of James Harvey HILL and Atha "Athey" Aimee BARKER. Please contact me if you are connected with this family and I will give you the corrected ancestry information. The children of James Harvey HILL and Atha "Athey" Aimee BARKER are; William L. Flournoy "Bud" HILL, born November 16, 1855 in Heard County, Georgia, who married Martha Luella MOSELY, Thomas M. HILL, born about 1857 in Heard County, Georgia, who married Ann Thomas "Tommie" DANIEL, James Manley HILL, born about 1859 in Heard County, Georgia, who married (1) Sarah Luella BROWN, (2) Attie O’NEAL and (3) Angie HEARD, Josey HILL (Twin), born about 1861 in Heard County, Georgia, and Sally Jane HILL (Twin), born about 1861 in Heard County, Georgia, who married William Valentine BRAZEAL.
I am descended from William L. Flournoy "Bud" HILL and Martha Luella MOSELY. Their children (all born in Heard Co. GA) were: Zolley Coffer HILL, born June 06, 1885, George Byron HILL, Sr., born April 10, 1888, who married Winnie Vesta COMBS August 15, 1911, Benjamin Harvey HILL, born June 26, 1891, William Claud HILL, born June 13, 1893, who married Burla CATER, Ruthie HILL, born September 25, 1895, who married H.H."Tamlin" MAXWELL, Annie Lou HILL, born August 27, 1899, Etta Selma HILL, born November 01, 1901, who married Searcy VEAL Byron Hill, P.O.

Byron Hill 11/8/96
Looking for the parents of Frances Permelia WALKER (b.ca.1828 SC) who married Benjamin F. MOZELY (MOSLEY/MOZELEY) b.Nov.14,1820 SC. We know from family tradition that we are in some way related to Captain William A. WALKER (CSA). It appears that our line of WALKERs and MOSELYs came from SC. The WALKERs were in Heard Co. before 1860, possibly earlier. The MOSELYs appear to have moved to Heard Co. prior to 1850. The date of the families moving from SC could possibly be pinpointed by inspecting the children of Benjamin F. MOSELY in the 1860 census records. There is a large WALKER family cemetery in Heard County.

I am looking for the marriage record of Newton J. TAYLOR and Minerva J. ________? Newton J. was living in Carroll Co. on the 1870 census. On the 1880 census they lived in Carroll Co. and had several children. I believe that Minerva J. probably lived in an adjoining county and that is where they were married. There is no record of their marriage in Carroll Co. so I am searching the surrounding counties in hopes of finding a record there. The marriage probably took place around 1873. Thanks for your help,
