BARFIELD / TAYLORI am searching for knowledge of Susannah (TAYLOR) BARFIELD (b. 1-2-1812 d.?) who was married (1830 Houston County, Ga.) to Cader BARFIELD (b. 1807 d.?) the son of Richard and Mary BARFIELD.

Susannah (TAYLOR) BARFIELD's parents were William and Nancy (PAGE) TAYLOR who are in the 1850 and 1860 Macon County census.  It is my understanding that William TAYLOR was the son of Tekkle TAYLOR (N.C.-S.C.-Macon Ga.) who was an early pioneer of Macon (at that time Marion) County Georgia.

I would appreciate any other information that one may have concerning these families including brothers, sisters, and other relatives that could be connected.  Also does anyone know any information about Cader's parents Richard and Mary BARFIELD who I think migrated from N.C. to Wilkes County, Georgia? Any help or knowledge would certainly be appreciated.

I am seeking anyone related to Armiseda Catherine "Kate" CALLAHAN, born about   1849 in Texas and Mahala Caroline "Carrie" CALLAHAN born between 1850 and 1856 in Texas. "Kate" and "Carrie" were the daughters of James Hughes CALLAHAN and Sarah Medissa DAY.

Captain James H. CALLAHAN was a well known Texas Ranger of his day. He was born Sept. 10, 1814 near Marion, GA. In Dec. of 1835 he went to Texas as part of Captain James C. WINN's Company of Georgia Battalian. On April 7, 1856, James became angered over some comments made by a neighbor, Woodson BLASSENGAME and an altercation occurred. A shootout ensued and James CALLAHAN and two friends, William S. "Maulheel" JOHNSON and Eli HINDS were shot. CALLAHAN and JOHNSON were killed. Woodson BLASSENGAME and his wife Mary and a son Calvin were taken into custody and were held at the residence of the Justice of the Peace since there was no jail. On April 14, 1856 a large mob overtook the BLASSENGAME's and Woodson and Calvin were taken out and shot repeatedly. Mary made her escape into nearby woods. Eventually at least 22 people were indicted for the murders of Woodson and Calvin BLASSENGAME.

In September of 1856, shortly after the death of James  CALLAHAN, Sarah, James' widow died from all the stress. Sarah had just lost a child in death just 6 months prior to James' death. Court records indicate that the 5 surviving children were placed in the custody of a family friend William E. JONES of Comal County, Texas. Soon a sister of James CALLAHAN that was residing in Walker County, GA indicated that she wished to raise the two girls "known as Kate and Carrie". The court approved and the girls were sent back to Georgia to be raised by their aunt. The three boys remained in Texas. Court records do not give a name for the aunt.

I am researching this entire event as many of the principles involved were related to my own family. My Great-great-grandfather John M. WATSON took the Blassengame family into custody after the initial shootout. I would like to make contact with anyone related to these families and especially would like to know of any stories that made it down the family to today. I also have a great deal of this history that I would be willing to share as well.

About the year 1830, my great grandfather, Archibald HILL, came with his wife and 3 small children from North Georgia or Western Carolina and settled on the south side of Cedar Creek on lot of land number 16x in the 3rd district of Muscogee Co. In 1837, this land was cut off into Marion (and later, in 1852, Taylor) County. The state of Georgia granted this land to Archibald on the condition that he would build a house, clear and fence a farm, and stay 3 years. He stayed for 53 years until he died in 1883. Does anyone have any more information regarding this?

I am researching the TULLIS family in Marion County. My gg-grandfather was Dr. James Monroe TULLIS (June 22, 1822 - Jan. 07, 1886), who lived much of his life in Marion County. He's buried in the Shiloh-Marion Cemetery. He was a son of Moses TULLIS (1779 - 1844), who also lived in Marion County, and died there. I believe Moses was a Justice of the Peace. I have not been able to find where he is buried. Moses was married to Polly BLALOCK. In addition to James M., their other children were John Blalock, Moses, Elizabeth, Elijah, Gipson, Catherine, Thomas Jefferson, Martha, and Newel Hill. James M. TULLIS was married twice. His first wife was Patience H. (possibly SHIRLING). His second wife was Sarah. James and Patience had three children: Mary, Susan F., and Newell Gibson (my g-grandfather). Mary (who may also have gone by Molly or Mittie) married a GUNNELS. Susan F. married James Young IVEY. Newell Gibson also became a physician, like his father, and practiced briefly in Marion County, I believe. But he moved to Thomasville, GA, and spent most of his adult life there. I have relatively complete information on Newell Gibson's descendants, but I would like to learn more about the descendants of his sisters, and also any of the other descendants of Moses TULLIS. I'd be happy to share any of my information.

Trying to straighten out a very confusing family. Sam BRUCE, long time resident of Marion County and wife Annie Laura PLYMALE. had sister Delila BRUCE who married S. John ALLISON. They went to Oklahoma and both died there. But children came back to Marion County and married. I know that Sam's father was James BRUCE and Jane CORSEY. But in later life she called herself Jane DICKERSON--on her tombstone in Palmer Cemetery in Marion Co. Jame BRUCE was much older than Jane. I speculate that each were married before--James perhaps to Annis (see 1850 census Marion Co) and had many children. . Perhaps Jane's maiden name was CORSEY, she married lst DICKERSON, then md James BRUCE?? I think one of Jane's children was "sis" Mary DICKERSON, who married George PLYMALE. who was Annie Laura PLYMALE's father. Very confusing! Help!!

I have traced my family back to Marion County, GA. and have recently visited your library trying to find more information. I did find a man who lives in Columbus that has been helpful, but I still need additional decendents to come forward so we can figure all of this out. My great-great grandfather was Perry Forrest HELMS (B: 1872) he had a sister Arrabella HELMS (B: 1870), they were children of Elizabeth STOREY (B: 1833) who was the wife of Andrew T. HELMS (Andrew died in the civil war long before Perry & Arrabella was born) We believe these two children were illigitimate. Which would explain why Perry never told any of his family where he was from etc. Perry F. HELMS married an Eleanor Floyd BELK who I believe was also from Marion County. If you have any information could you please send it to me.

My ancestor is named John Hobbs. He had several children, among them a daughter who married a LIGHTNER. John M. HOBBS married to Nancy GASSETT and they are buried outside of Butler, Georgia. I always believed that he had a place in Marion County-maybe before the county was divided up. I always understood that they lived in Buena Vista for a time.

James Kennon COTTEN b.c. 1811 and Julia A. COTTEN b.c. 1809, both GA (per census) were brother and sister. "Jack" was a "doctor" who married Sarah Williams REID in 1838 (not known where) and they are first found in Marion Co., GA in 1840. This is my line. They had 13 children, only 6 of whom lived to adulthood. I have a picture/collage of this couple with their adult children and several of the kids are very ethnic in appearance; broad noses, deep-set eyes, dark and curly (almost oily) hair, dark and very tanned complexion. This deep, darkness carries down even today. Jack Cotten lived a long while in Powder Springs, GA where he practiced medicine. This family owned slaves and were listed as "white" on censuses. He died in 1875 in Cobb Co., Acworth, GA. Julie A. Cotten m. 1830 in Upson Co., GA to Thomas Franklin BETHEL, who was from Charleston, SC. They had two little girls named TURNBULL living with them in 1850. Julia died in Upson Co. in the 1890's. I don't believe they had children. I have no pictures of this couple.

I know that Marion Co. and its surrounding area was originally Creek Indian land in the 1830's. I can find no parents for these siblings nor any other information about them. It has been suggested that perhaps they were "passing" for white. I would really like to show my pictures to someone who knows ethnicity and see what they think I'm dealing with. I'm open to these people being mulatto (black) also.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

By Jan. of 1829 he was in Jefferson Co. FL., and in 1835 he bought land in Muscogee and Stewart Co. Any help on my Permelia will be appreciated.

Amanda BENTLEY, age 23, lived in Red Bone, Marion Co GA, in 1870, with her young son James (he born 1864 GA). John C. BENTLEY with large family lived next door. Could this be her father-in-law? Could her husband be the James C. BENTLEY who was mustered out of Civil War in Marion Co 1865? Could she be the same as Amanda POSEY who was born 1847 in Coosa Co AL (father Eli died in CW at Richmond; her age matches this one, none of the other Amanda POSEYs in GA/AL)? Have the (grown-up) child James's death certificate (1931) showing parents as James C. BENTLEY and Amanda POSEY.

Is there some special connection between Coosa Co AL and Marion Co GA? There are other POSEYs in Marion Co; of course they're all over GA and AL. Also found marriage between a BELK/BELKE and BENTLEY in Marion Co.

Been searching this line for many years, finding no proof.

Seeking information on the following ROBINSONS with connections to Marion Co, GA. I have additional data on how their spouses are related to one another, and data on connected ROBINSONS in Chattahoochee Co, GA, who moved from Talbot Co, GA, and perhaps from Baldwin Co, GA before that. While this name is most frequently spelled ROBINSON, it is sometimes written as ROBERSON or ROBERTSON (also ROBESON, ROBISON) when referring to the same individuals.

1) Nina ROBINSON married James B. McCARDEL, son of Charles E. McCARDEL (1821-1881) and Eliza Jane PARKER (1836 - 1911).

2) Jay ROBINSON married Cynthia Irene "Rena" GALLOPS (1904 - 1990), daughter of John Caleb "Charlie" GALLOPS (1871-1915) and Carrie Mattie SIZEMORE (1874 - 1965). Jay is said to have been killed on Linwood Blvd. in Columbus, GA, gunned down and left to die by an unknown assailant. He had children Melton, Clinton and at least one daughter.

3) Mattie ROBINSON married John Ray KEMP (1839 - 1901). They lived in Marion County until 1881, then moved to Chattahoochee County. Their grandaughter, Aria HARRIS, married William McCARDEL, nephew of James B. McCARDEL mentioned in #1. Aria's sister, Esther HARRIS, married Louie Thomas ROBINSON (b. ca. 1904), son of Henry D. ROBINSON (1880 - 1971) and George A. PATE (1886 - 1942). Henry is son of Thomas R. and A. Frances (SIZEMORE) ROBINSON. Thomas is son of Burrell H. and Ferlinia (SIZEMORE) ROBINSON, and Frances is daughter of Richard D. and Mary Matilda (REVELL) SIZEMORE. Richard and Ferlinia are both children of George and Rhoda SIZEMORE.

4) Martha Georgia Ann TURNER, b. Feb. 15, 1879 at Juniper, GA, m. 09 NOV 1901 to Molie Isom "Dock" ROBERSON (ROBINSON, I think). Martha is daughter of Wiley and Mary (ASKEW) SIZEMORE of Marion Co, GA (relationship to George and Rhoda SIZEMORE mentioned in #3 not currently known).

5) Martha's sister, Pinkie TURNER, b. 02 JUN 1890 at Juniper, GA, m. 13 FEB 1907 to Jim ROBINSON (also given as ROBERSON).

Any information appreicated. I would be happy to share data from my records.
