Re: Putnam Co., GA, Martin Moore
In Response To: Putnam Co., GA, Martin Moore ()
You might want to broaden you research to include the county that boarders Putnam to the north. I couldn’t discern from your message if you were aware that Godfrey and Eatonton are located in the southern most part of Morgan county. Since Martin Moore and Mary Willie Walton married in or near one of these two townships, I assume that Mary was a resident of Morgan county in that it was a practice that a marriage take place in the county in which the bride resided.
Morgan county researchers are fortunate not only to have access to court records but also to those records that are in the possession of the Morgan County Archives. Could the Moore family also be residents of Morgan County? To determine if Martin and Mary did in fact marry in Morgan County contact Mr. Marshall Williams at the archives to request a search of the 1889 Colored marriage index.
