Hall, Parthena-I am looking for information on our family that lived in Haralson County in the 1860 - 1874. Parthena Hall, born in 1848, was the daughter of Hiram and Charity Hall. She married James Thompson on 31 March 1970. They had a son, John Ledford Thompson, Jan. 1870.
The family story is that James and Parthena had marital problems and seperated some time after John was born. James supposedly kidnapped baby John and took him to a cabin somewhere in the area. He was murdered while rocking the baby (rumor is that it was one of Parthena's brothers).
Parthena remarried GB Brown on 2 November 1874.
The ONLY portion of the story that I have found records for is the marriages of Parthena and her family living in Haralson County. Hiram Hall is listed in a book titled Haralson County History where Parthena is noted.
If anyone knows of this story or is locating information on any of these families, I would appreciate any additional information I can locate on this family.
Thank you for your help,

Charles Christopher Head, Sr. Looking for the family of my grandfather, Charles Christopher Head, Sr. He may have lied about his age to get in the army during the Spanish American War. My family records state he was born 11 Jan, 1879 but some records show a Charles CW Head b. 11 Jan 1881 son of Joseph Henry Head. We have old family reunion photographs from the mid 1880's that say "Tallapoosa" on the back. Is my grandpa the son of Joseph Henry Head? Lee Kaplan 7-26-2005

UPDATE: My grandfather, Charles Christopher Head (SR) is the same person as Charles C W Head, son of Joseph Henry Head. Now I have a fairly complete history but I'm still looking for more details. Have you heard of the Heads of Haralson being part Cherokee? My grandpa said he was 1/4. I'm not sure if the Cherokee came from his mother, Savannah Susannah Dykes or John Henry Head.

UPDATE:
I am still looking for date of death for James Rowell (approx date of birth is 1858 according to 1880 census) that married Vinninah Dean. She died in 1948. In the 1930 census he was still alive. There were 2 James W. Rowell's in Haralson County but living on different properties during that era. I found a Eli Rowell with siblings James & Marion that parents were Joshua Rowell & Mary Frances Tollison. Could this be them. I also heard that James' parents could be Thompson/Thomas and Elizabeth Rowell. My James Rowell's children were Jefferson, Bruce/Bruister, Ida/Idder, Rosie, Mattie, Mentie/Minnie (my grandmother was Minnie) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Wilkinson, Lucy Susannah Hill My grandfather wrote the following in the 1950s in his memoirs:
"During the period following the Revolutionary War, an ancestor whose name I do not have, was serving as an officer of militia on the frontier in what is now Haralson County, Georgia, the county seat of which is now Tallapoosa. His wife preferred to stay with him, and they left their little girl, named Lucy, with friends at Augusta. Their home was somewhat isolated, and they were killed by Indians, and a small negro slave-girl was thrown head-first against the chimney, after which they set fire to the house and left. The child was not killed, and regained consciousness enough to get out of the house before she was burned to death. Weeks later a patrol of settlers came through and she was seen, and was in such a wild state that she had to be run down by the horsemen to be caught.
The daughter of the couple, Lucy, grew up and married a man named Wilkinson, who did not live very long, and later she married George Washington Frye in Alabama."

Williams, Oscar Looking for any information on Oscar Williams. He was listed on the 1910 Federal Census as living in Buchanan, Georgia along with my grandmother Ola Lee Williams and children, including my father, Reed Williams. I do not know who Oscar's family was. He went off and left Grandma and the kids sometime after 1910. Believe he went to Oklahoma because I remember a young lady named Jimmy Louise Williams coming to visit us in Wisconsin sometime in the late 30's. She said she was from Oklahoma and that Oscar was her father. How she found us up there I do not know because the family lived in Georgia when Oscar ran off. Any Information would be greatly appreciated to help me finish the family Genealogy. I have the Lee side of the family completed. Thank you very much. Jim Williams 12-28-2004
