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

Six years to the date of my first email. I have an update and still unsolved mystery.

Found the marriage certificate dated 1877 between Sid and Amelia. From this, I was able to locate the maiden name for Amelia and then Amelia on the 1870 census. A transcription error prevented me from finding them on the census but I was able to find them in Schley County:

Members: Name Age
George Bivins 37
Ann Bivins 24
Jacob Bivins 14
Amilia Bivins 11
Ruben Bivins 7
Eliza Bivins 6
Edward Bivins 5
Caroline Bivins 1
(Fathers Birthplace SC) So there is the tie...
If there are any Bivins from Macon county please contact me!

I am still uncertain about the parents of Sid. I was hoping to get a hold of a death certificate that would hopefully list the parents name on it. Still trying to confirm the name change.

For those still searching, be persistent. Sometimes it takes a while to uncover unsolved mysteries. It took me six years. Happy Black History Month!
