looking for information on when and from where the Reid family
immigrated to Meriwether County. Robert A. Reid, b. 1/4/1826, presumably
in Meriwether County. He and his wife, Carolina Bowles, are buried near
Rocky Mount and Strickland Town. We have information about their
Dora Reid Nash, and great-grandson of Robert A. Reid
I'm looking for information on the death of William Allen Farmer in
Meriwether County, GA. I'm looking for newspaper articles,
obituary, etc. William Farmer was a U. S.
Marshal. He was living in Chalybeate Springs,
Meriwether County, GA during the 1930 US Census.
He was given an assignment to pick up an escaped prisoner some
time in the early 1930's. He had to go into
the area called, "The Cove" in Manchester,
Georgia to find and arrest the escapee. He never returned home to his
family. Six (6) weeks later his body
was found in The Cove. He had five (5) shot
wounds to his back from a pump shotgun. The wildlife had worked him
over pretty well, but he was still
identifiable. The above info came recently
from a descendant of William's. I have been
trying to find any reference to this murder of William Farmer as well
as to where he was killed and where he was
buried for several years. I would also like
to order a death certificate on him. So far I've come up empty with
all my attempts, but this information gives me new hope.
Can someone who as excess to the necessary records help me with
this? Any and all help would be greatly
appreciated. You will be completely
reimbursed for copying and mailing fees.

Information on KINNEY.
I am searching for the parents of John
Franklin TAYLOR and Mary Lenore PORTER. They are shown on the 1920
census as John and Mary. They are on the 1910 as John F and Mary
L. They are on the 1900 as John F and Mary L, but in 1870 they are
Andrew J and Mollie . Their marriage
license has J.A.J. and Mollie, they
married 13 April 1871. In 1880 they had children Mammie, Minnie,
Rosa and Callie G. Believe me these are the same people. They moved
to Jacksonville, Calhoun Co. AL, not sure
when and I owned a grocery
store there. I am also told that they
donated some property to the college
there. I am also told that Callie G. was
severely burned in a house fire before they moved. I would
appreciate it if anyone has any information on this family. Rosa is
my grandmother. Thanks.
