ADAMS, Robert & wife Sidney MANDERSON migrated from Bibb Co., GA, by 1830. They previously resided in Baldwin Co., GA, where they married in 1822. Robert was born in England in 1794; Sidney was probably born in

BAREFOOT, Mortimer WILSON, born in Hartsville, Darlington County, SC, on May 3, 1848, moved to Crawford County between 1878 and 1900.  Wife - Caroline "Carrie" Howle, born Nov 1852 in Darlington Co, SC;, married abt 1878.  Children - John Francis, Sarah Elizabeth, Minnie Frances, Benjamin "Jimmy," Caroline "Carrie," Margaret "Maggie," Lena, and Dock.  All children were listed on the 1900 Crawford County census (and in independent family research) as being born in SC, but this can't be right, as some were born after 1900, when the family was already in Crawford County. Wilson died in 1926. (Heather Selph ←)
