I believe I saw this spelling of the name at the Red Oak Cemetery in Georgia, but I don't remember if the cemetery was at Ashburn, GA or Doles, Worth Co. GA, or where.

What you can do, however, is to send for a soundex of a Georgia census (for whatever year or years you know they were living). This will tell you where in Georgia.

If you don't know how to get a soundex census, go to your nearest Church of Jesus Christ Latter-Day Saints Family History Center. They will soundex the name for you and find a film to order the census for you.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. But I do remember that spelling. In the Red Oak Cemetery there was four different spellings for Fillyaw (mine).
