Looking for the CHERRY FAMILY 1800s
Posted by: Brenda Drews (ID *****3225) Date: October 07, 2003 at 20:12:40

I'm looking for information on S Hiram Cherry & Elmira Walker Mills who moved to the Dublin area abt: 1880. The family group info I have is listed below, any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much in advance... Brenda Mills Drews

ELMIRA WALKER MILLS was born 1845 in Abbeville, SC, to William S & Janette Crawford Mills, who moved the family to Augusta, GA. Area prior to 1867, and she died in Possibly in Dublin, Ga?. She married S HIRAM CHERRY February 10, 1867 in Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia. He was born 1849 in Augusta, Georgia, and died August 14, 1897 in Dublin, Georgia. (Transported back to Augusta for burial)

Also according to the cemetery records, the single grave was purchased by Mrs. E.W. Cherry of Dublin, Ga., but only 1 grave was purchased.

Burial: Magnolia Cemetary, Augusta, Georgia
Occupation listed as a Mechanic of some sort in Dublin, Ga on cemetery records, however, he was appointed a Police Officer in Augusta, Ga. as noted in the Augusta Chronicle & Sentinel Newspaper dated: January 11, 1874, and according to the 1880 census was listed as a "Wood Dealer, so my "assumption" is that the family moved to Dublin sometime after 1880.

Children of ELMIRA MILLS and S CHERRY are:
i. ELLEN G CHERRY, b. 1875 (listed on census)
ii. ROSETTA R CHERRY, b. 1870 (listed on census)

iii. GEORGE T CHERRY, b. Abt. 1871.
iv. LURANA CHERRY, b. Abt. 1872.
v. JANE CHERRY, b. Abt. 1873.
vi. MARGARET CHERRY, b. Abt. 1874.
