Re: [GA] Laura Parks
In Response To: Re: [GA] Laura Parks ()
I believe the Laura Reid you found on the 1920 census for Atlanta, Georgia is Laura Parks. I found death records for her children, Joe, Carrie, and Sandy and they all list their parents as Mead Reid/Reed and Laura Parks.
On the 1870 census for Pike County, GA, I found Laura (17 y.o.) living with her parents Asbury and Elmira/Almira Parks, and 8 siblings, which includes Sidney (6 y.o.) and Berry (3 y.o.).
I also found Mead Reid on the same census living with his family in Pike County.
The 1880 census has Mead and Laura Reid, and their children, living in District 1065, Spalding, GA.
I also found death records for Sidney Parks, his wife, Frances, and their children for Chattanooga, Hamilton, TN. Sidney's parents are listed as Rodney (not Asbury) Parks and Elmira Jones. Frances's parents are Wade Oxford and Harriett Jones.
Good luck in your research.
