Re: Carroll Co. Marriages

I'm really scratching my head now. I just found a page on the internet that is a Carroll Co. marriages index. I found the Amanda E. marrying the Streetman man, but they have her as a "Barks". i also found a mary Ann Barles marrying a Thomas Gray. in one of your previous messages, you mentioned a mary Ann Barber marrying a Thomas Gray. I also found Nancy "Frashour marrying Elisha Harbor. It is quite evident the original documents are difficult to read and as different people are trying to transcribe, they are coming up with different names/spellings. There must be something to the "Barles" looking like "Barber". Your index has mary Ann as a "Barber" and the one on the internet has her as a "Barles".

Back to the Amanda E. Barles/Barber and the Streetman man. After their marriage in 1848, on the 1850 Carroll Co. census there is a Amanda E. Barber living with the "Elijah" Barber family and there is a Alman Streetman man living alone. Figure that one out.

Here's where i found the index

Is there anyway you could scan the page where you show Elisha Barber marrying nancy Fraser and e-mail to me? I am trying to prove this marriage to an individual.

On the Elijah Barber deal, I think if you google Elijah Barber Trial in jones County Georgia, you will see what i am talking about. He was sentenced to 5 years but he escaped after about 1 year in prison. some think he came to Carroll County and lived as Elisha Barber. I don't subscribe to that. i am convinced they are 2 different people and the Elijah on the 1850 Carroll Co. census is actually Elisha and Elisha went to Arkansas between 1853 and 1857. Like you said for "Land!". Thanks.
