Looking for information re Ira D. Smith and Georgia Victoria Smith (maiden name) who were married in Bibb Co 2 Aug 1903. Said to have lived in Ft. Valley. Any information appreciated. Gene Smith.

I am interested in learning the fate of Humphries Waters, who supposedly moved to Macon from Toombs Co, GA sometime around 1920. She was born in Bradford Co, FL c.1899-1906. She may have married in Bibb Co, name of husband unknown. In any event, she had a daughter named Ruth and lived for a while with a friend from Toombs Co, Miss Vollie Collins, in Macon. Also is believed to have lived with her uncle, Lawton F. Gordon (1888-1927), a veteran of WWI who lived in Macon c. 1920-1927. Information on him is also needed. Any information or advice welcome!

Sharon Watts Brown
I am new to genealogy. Looking for info on Watts: Jacob T, Henry J, Murpy, Mary J, Rhoda, Milly, Martha, Isaac Jr. Born between 1829 and 1847 to Isaac and Jane Champion Watts. Isaac, the father, was probably born in SC. The family seems to have moved to Clay Co., AL. I wondered if any served in the Civil War, married, etc. Any info appreciated.
