1.  HERRIN,  Would like any information on the William E. Herrin family.

 William Elmore Herrin (1882-1962), son of Francis Melford Herrin(1854-1910) and Rebecca Catherine Elmore(1853-1896) was born in Coweta County, but grew up in the Whitesburg area of Carroll County. He was a grandson of Moses Gresham Herrin and Sophronia Ann Williams of Meriwether, Coweta and Carroll GA and Cleburne AL. I would like to know anything about the William Herrin family in Vanishing Georgia Photograph 161 taken about 1905 to see if there is a connection to my Herrins in the same area. Are there any available resources about the Whitesburg area?" Please contact Clarke Rodgers

PUCKETT, ANDREW JACKSON AND FRANCES ROBERTS PUCETT

I am researching the Andrew Jackson Puckett & Frances Roberts Puckett  family of Coweta Co. GA.  The  children lived in Paulding, Carroll, Troup, Pickens, Greene & Forsyth Co. GA.  Also in Southwest AR, Eastern AL & Upshur Co, TX.    Andrew Jackson & Frances married in Coweta Co. in 1837.  One of the sons had the name of "Tillero" & this unusual name was also found in the Davidson, King, Smith & McClain families of the same areas & time frame.

The children of Andrew Jackson Puckett & Frances Roberts Puckett:

1.    Elizabeth - was in the 1910 Troup Co. GA census, as Eliz Harris,  living with dau, Mandy/Amanda  (her  name was Samuels so maybe she was marr before)  & Mandy's  husb, James Culbertson.   Eliz  was born in the White Oak Community in Coweta Co.   In the 1870 Forsyth Co. Ga census, James & Eliz have a 10 yr old in the h/h named Eliza Jones.  Wonder who she is?   Maybe from another marriage?

2.  Mary Ann - First marr was to a Marcus deLafayette Smith who died during the CW.  Second marr to Wm Lawrence Hogan III  in Randolph Co. AL.  Buried in Carroll Co. GA.    I am in touch with several of her desc.  Have pictures.

3.  Lucinda - married Peter E. Duncan/Dunkin - his 2nd marriage.    Had one known dau, Margaret/Maggie (b 1868).   Lucinda's husb, Peter Dunkin  d 1879.     She is living with her bro, Joseph Richard Puckett & w/Epsie (Grubbs)  in the 1880 Haralson Co. GA census.  In the 1900 Carroll Co. GA census, Maggie has my grandfather, who was her cousin, in the h/h.  They are in the h/h of a Lattimer family.  Don't know who they are & Lucinda isn't listed.  By 1900, Joseph Richard & his family have moved to Columbia Co. AR but don't know if the ladies went with them. 

4.  John A. - married a Nell  Fuller, moved to Upshur Co, TX in about 1888.  Had at least one & maybe 2 other marriages.  Had 3 children, Robert, Newt & Ida Frances.  Ida married a "Nipper" in Upshur Co.  In the 1910 U Co. census, his wife is a Martha.  A grandson by the last name of Cornett in the h/h.  In the 1930 U Co. census, John A. &  his dau, Ida Frances, are living with a Johnnie & Mattie Nipper. 

5.  Wm Samuel - my line, I think I sent you that.   Have pictures.

6.   James Tillero/Tillaro/Tillerow - marr Eliza Clementine Duke went to Upshur/Camp/Wood Co, TX.  Committed suicide.   I have picture of Tillero & family.

7.  Geo W. - married Ana/Anna Fuller in 1872.  Had at least one other marr - maybe to a Barbara Ann?    Died 1939 Carroll Co. GA,  (Villa Rica) & buried in New Hope Primitive Baptist Cemetery in Villa Rica.

8.  Joseph Richard - married Epsie Grubbs, in the 1880 Haralson Co. GA census.  By about 1888, he had moved to Columbia Co. AR & think he went on to CA.  Had another marriage.  I am in touch with 3 of his desc.  At least one of his children, (Andrew T.) went into LA. 

9.  Mittie A. - Married Pete Embrey/Embree.   Found her as a widowed school teacher in the 1920 Pickens Co. GA census.   She was in Troup Co. in 1880 & had daughters, Mary 21 , Sallie/Sarah 18, Tommie 13  & possibly an Effie 17.     No husb at that time. 

10.  Andrew  Phillip - died at 20 yrs of age of pneumonia.   Have picture of him.

Any info on these folks appreciated.  Have info & pictures to share.    

Thanks,Diane P. Ethridge, Conroe, TX

Thanks again..here is my email address.

Classification: Query 
Surnames: Fortner
I'm looking for information about Thomas J. Fortner born 1854, Carrol County, Villa Rica, Georgia, USA. 
I'm trying to find out his wife Lucy's maiden name and also any information on his parents. 
I think his fathers name was William. his mother's maybe Jane but I don't have a maiden name. 
But I'm not sure really of either first name.
Also I was trying to find out where in Carroll Co Thomas died and what cemetery he's buried. 
Also Thomas died 5-17-1923 but the date is all I can find, no other information was given to me.
I hope this is enough information to help.
Thank you.

Copies of death certificates are not on line for 1938.  Sorry but at least you have the certificate No. 11255. 
I believe you can order a copy of the certificate from Carroll Co. Probate Court.  Cost $10.00 I think .
