Was the Rev. J. K. LEAK a pastor in Meriwether
Co.? From the Southern Christian Advocate obituary
of Perlina Paulina Blount
WALKER (1877), we learned her wedding date (to Henry H. Walker) and
performed the ceremony (Rev. J.
K. Leak) but can
find no Meriwether Co. records indicating that
the marriage took place in Meriwether Co. - which
is where the bride's family lived. She was a
daughter of Freeman W. Blount and Sarah McDaniel
Lassiter Blount. Any information on this preacher will help
I am interested in the Blount family and am trying to find what
happened to the children of Levi P. Blount and his second wife. Their names
were Claude, Mary, and Sallie Blount.

I need to know more info on Jewell and the girls. I know Beatrice
married a Thornton and Idell married a Bunn and was in Griffin, Ga

If you can help I would greatly appreciate any and all.
