Bibb Co Queries - 1996

Jim Grubbs
Seeking information on the (orphanage) especially for the period 1900-1930. The home is no longer in existence (at least by this name). One source has told me it was destroyed by a fire at some point. I am specifically searching for Mary Alice ANDERSON born circa 1909 in Rockville, Putnam Co, Georgia, but believed orphaned and placed in a home in Macon. The 1910 and 1920 census show a Phelma ANDERSON at Appleton and the rest of the information fits, showing her father as either Swedish or Finnish and her mother as being from Georgia. The1910 census lists her as 14 months old. I am already in contact with the Methodist Home for Children and Youth in Macon.

Anne (Bucher) Bowie
My great grandfather was born in Switzerland and died in Macon GA per an article in the EVENING GRAPHIC dated 3/2/1883. Conrad BUCHER, my great grandfather, committed suicide and the article is headlined: ANOTHER SUICIDE. I am searching for his roots in Switzerland but have a few loose ends in Macon, Georgia. His wife's name was Katura and I found them in the census stating that Kati BUCHER was from SC. I am looking for her maiden name, where she was born (could be Dublin, Ireland) and who she married after Conrad BUCHER died in March 1883. They had one son, Conrad BUCHER Jr, my grandfather, born 9/11/1879 in Macon, Georgia. He had a step father and a step brother but no one can remember what their last name was. I think the step brother's name was Bob.
