With a marriage that took place before Loving vs. Virginia I see three possibilities: Your parents didn't disclose your mother's heritage (i.e. she could 'pass'). Your parents married somewhere else (not likely to be South Carolina or Georgia). Your parents married after 1967 (or never married). Since you have a marriage date, let's assume for the moment ...

Georgia registration of deaths statewide began in 1919 and was generally complied with by 1922. But there may be records at the local level. Unfortunately, marriage records in Georgia didn't record the parents of the bride and groom, so you won't be able to find direct evidence of his father's name there. You may have to build a case using indirect ...

Unlike many Ancestry databases, there is only minimal explanation on the search page of the 1864 Census for Re-Organizing the Georgia Militia. However, it does say that the names were extracted from a book of indexed entries. Books have introductions and opening pages with useful information. Use the "Browse this collection" function at the right ...

For deaths you can also check with the local historical society for the County, and see if they have any death indexes that might pre-date the official death certificates. I'm thinking earlier records might be your best bet. With no obit or death cert, I would start by looking for birth, marriage, or military records as your best chance of finding his name....

Regarding whether or not the name should have been allowed to be seen, the federal government limits census records going back for 72 years. For example, my husband, who was born in 1937, is shown on the last publicly-released census of 1940. That census was released in 2012. The next census to be released will be the 1950 census in 2022. My point is ...

My reading would be that David Allison is a trustee for Sophronia Boyd (or possibly for her estate if she was dead). If you look you will see that there are ditto marks before the word trustee, indicating that you need to read David's name there. If you look further down the page you will see a similar arrangement with Milton Boyd as guardian for Margaret ...

History: Wikipedia's article Indian Territory says: Indian Territory later came to refer to an unorganized territory whose general borders were initially set by the Indian Intercourse Act of 1834, and was the successor to the remainder of the Missouri Territory after Missouri received statehood. The borders of Indian Territory were reduced in size as ...

When using any Ancestry database, your first stop should be the About the Database information on the main search page. Since this is a two-page form, we can see that this is a list of white taxpayers. Ancestry tells us the list might include: name number of polls taxable profession number of employees acres owned (and location) value of ...

I believe it means that Augustus Hinton was Agent of Rebecca Flinn (white) and Guardian for Jane Burnett a free person of color. Check the laws in effect at that time and place because people of color may have needed a court-appointed person to act on their behalf. In this case, paying taxes on Rebecca's land as her agent and (perhaps) a poll tax for Jane.

My ancestors consistently show they are the age given (in years and months) as of January 1864 (Glascock and Warren counties).
