Re: Olivers in GA
In Response To: Olivers in GA ()

Hi,

Sometimes you have to look for name changes between census periods.
I'd take a close look at this family in 1870:

Name: Sarah Darley - head of household
Estimated birth year: abt 1835
Age in 1870: 35
Birthplace: South Carolina
Home in 1870: Schley, Georgia

Race: Black
Gender: Female
Post Office: Ellaville

Sidney Darley
Estimated birth year: abt 1857
Age in 1870: 13
Birthplace: Georgia

Name: Henry Darley
Estimated birth year: abt 1862
Age in 1870: 8
Birthplace: Georgia
Home in 1870: Schley, Georgia

Other listed children - Rubin and Eliza.

She is listed as born SC.

Your Sidney in 1880 has mother listed as NC in index but it could be SC on actual record.
