States: Georgia: Macon
I am looking for information on the Tookes and Whitakers who lived in Macon County. They are listed on the 1870 Macon County Census (Oglethrope Post Office, Gatlins 757 District). Does anyone know the approximate location in Macon County where they might have lived, given this census district? John Joseph Tooke and Elizabeth Mildred Whitaker were married in 1868 in Macon County. Bible records show that they had a male infant who died in 1869, and a female infant named Minnie Lee Tooke who died around 1871. Does anyone have access to cemetery information in Macon County were these infants might have been buried? In 1870, John and Elizabeth Tooke seem to have been living near Elizabeth's family. Her father was Thomas R. Whitaker. The Tooke's were listed in household 1040 and the Whitaker's in household 1095 in the census records. This Tooke family and Whitaker family moved to Mississippi some time after 1870. They are all listed in the 1880 Monroe County Mississippi Census in 1880. Any information about their lives in Macon County would be greatly appreciated.
