I'm looking for the parents of Willie Gann, born in the early 1840's in Cobb County, Georgia. In 1863, he entered service as a private in Randolph County, Alabama, married about 1864, first child was born in Alabama in 1865 and by 1868, his second child was born in Georgia, along with his third in 1873. By 1880, they were in Cleburne County, AL and in 1887, they arrived in Winston County, AL where they STAYED.
On the 1850 census in Cobb County, there is a William Gann in the household of Francis Gann (possible grandfather because of age). No other person is in the household, and I'm really not even sure if this is my William Gann. His death certificate only states his parents as ? Gann and Martha Gann, so big help there. Anyone have any ideas??
