Seeking information on family and background of Robert PAGE (b. ca. 1810 SC or GA – 1860s) and wife Sarah (UNKNOWN) PAGE (b. ca. 1813 SC). He may be the Robert PAGE who heads a household on p. 282 of the 1840 census of Wilkinson Co, GA. Sarah’s background is unknown, except that a later census says her parents were born in Ireland. I have not located them in 1850 – according to their children’s birthplaces, they moved from GA to AL about that time. However, in 1860 they and their children were at Clapp’s Factory in Muscogee County, GA. By 1870, he had died and she had moved the family to Brownville, Lee Co, AL, where she still lived in 1880. Their children:
>>> Louisa “Lou” PAGE (ca. 1838 GA – aft. 1880), not known to have married.
>>> Permelia A. “Melia” PAGE (1841 GA – 1905 Carroll Co, GA), m. 1864 Muscogee Co, GA, to Henry M. NEWSOME (his second wife) – these are my mother’s g-grandparents.
>>> William PAGE (ca. 1841 GA – 1862 Skidaway Island, Chatham Co, GA), died during service in Co. A, 31st Regt, Georgia Infantry, CSA; buried in the Clapp’s Factory Cemetery, Muscogee Co, GA.
>>> Melvina PAGE (ca. 1844 GA – aft. 1880), not known to have married.
>>> Ellafair “Ella” PAGE (ca. 1846 GA – aft. 1880), m. 1870 Muscogee Co, GA, to Franklin C. “Frank” WILLIAMS (ca. 1850 AL – aft. 1880). They appear by her mother in 1880; no known issue.
>>> Mahala PAGE (ca. 1848 GA – ca. 1896, buried in Linwood Cemetery, Columbus, GA), m. 1873 Muscogee Co, GA, to Charles J. OWENS (ca. 1845 GA – aft. 1880). They appear by her mother in 1880; one known child: Mary L. OWENS (b. 1879 AL).
>>> Jane PAGE (ca. 1850 AL – aft. 1870), perhaps m. 1878 Lee Co, AL, to William EDWARDS; can’t locate in 1880.
>>> Robert PAGE (Jr.) (ca. 1854 AL – aft. 1880), m. 1878 Lee Co, AL, to Rachel MARTIN (ca. 1862 – aft. 1880), d/o William R. & Jane (McCOLLISTER) MARTIN. Married at her father’s home, with his consent and consent of F. WILLIAMS (evidently Robert’s brother-in-law Franklin). They appear by Robert’s mother in 1880; one known child: William R. PAGE (b. ca. 1879 AL). Robert and Rachel are buried in Linwood Cemetery, Columbus, GA.
>>> Emma PAGE (ca. 1856 AL – aft. 1870), perhaps m. 1875 in Muscogee Co, GA, to Robert KNOWLES. Not located in 1880.
I am interested in contacting descendants or anyone researching this family. I will be glad to share what I have – thanks! John in TX
