Special Thanks & Notes:
I learned that George W. Carter [1826 - 1863] m. 24 Dec. 1844
to Lucy Ann Carter; is not our George Carter. Their children
were Robert Lesley, Wm. Thos., James Alexander, Mary Elizabeth and
Georgia A. (dau). This George lived near Broadnax's Mill not far from Between, GA.
He also was in the Civil War. Notes from Jim Gilreath dated September 21,
2003 & June 2004.
Thank you, I received more information from James T. Lord about Jessie Carter
Gaddis in October 2003.
Dot S. Cox wrote me about Mattie & Joe being
buried at Westlawn Cemetery, Monroe, GA.
