Does anyone have any information on Fayette County, GA
men who volunteered to fight for Texas Independence?
This would have been between 1836-1845...
I am trying to find some trace of my gggg grandfather
who had last name HANCOCK, first name Albert and/or
William and possibly middle name Garrison..
His parent's names were James Hancock and Sarah Scaife.
My Hancock, who spent part of the 1830's in Henry Co., GA
and possibly moved over to Fayette Co. in the early 1840's,
volunteered for the Mexican wars and presumaby died in the
fight for Texas Independence in about 1845 (before the formal
His widow, Mary (Bowden) Hancock shows up in the 1850
census in Fayette Co., GA with her children: Jesse B., Sally S.,
Margaret, and Ann W. Jesse B. Hancock joined the CSA
in Alabama in 5-1861, survived Sharpsburg, and ended up marrying into
a Bowden family in Henry Co. AL... I cannot find my Mary Hancock
again for sure until 1900 when she shows up in the Henry Co. AL home of
her widowed daughter, Sally Scaife (Hancock) Askew., my ggg gmother..
I have no idea where Albert/William Garrison? Hancock is buried or what
unit(s) he served with... he seems definitely to have been killed in ~1845.
Help if you can...
