The surname in particular in the incident I am trying to solve is Parrott.

The incident is found in chapter XII of MY LIFE AND TRAVELS By LEVI BRANHAM; printed by THE A. J. SHOWALTER CO. PRINTERS AND PUBLISHERS DALTON, GA. 1929
from "GA Genealogy Trails" found at http://www.genealogytrails.com/geo/murray/biography_levi_branham.htm

It involved a "Mrs. Parrot" / "Mrs. Parrott" in 1875. I was trying to determine which of the ladies, who were listed on Murray Co., GA censuses, by that name, it could have been. In 1870, two were listed on the same page in Militia Dist 972 - PO Spring Place. In 1880, the two from 1870 were in Doolittle, twelve pages apart, one was married and the other was possibly a widow [husband's will was dated 1874 and probated 1875]. The third lady in 1880 was in Ball Ground, Militia Dist 825. [Two other ladies on the 1880 census wasn't married by 1875.] The article indicated that the incident happened southeast of Spring Place and not southwest of Spring Place.

These are the direct line surnames in my husband's line in the area: Parrott, Harden/in, Leonard, Roberts, Adams, Clark, Brewer, Yancy/ey, Rice, Bagley. Some of these were in counties nearby. Of course, there are a number of other surnames for the spouses of siblings and cousins of his grandparents of various degrees.
