Yes, Elizabeth died and Sarah married her sister's husband in Putnam Co.,GA c 1853/54. Thus Warren's son, W W (listed as William in 1860) Lee, might have been Sarah's and not E. A. Elizabeth's. There is a big gap between Elizabeth's daughter, Sarah (named after her aunt, Sarah), age 11 and
"W W," the son, age 5 in 1860 on the Oglethorpe, Macon Co., GA census.
Elizabeth Ann Emeline Register and Warren W Lee were married in Putnam Co.,GA, 9 Nov 1843 (I have the marriage cert. and copy of marriage register index page from Putnam Co.,GA), then in about 1853/54 Sarah married Warren. I have the exact date somewhere. Probably Elizabeth died around the time of her daughter, Sarah's, birth in 49 or sometime before 1853/54, having no more living children??
The Mary A R living with the Lees in 1860 was Sarah's younger sister, and Mary's age is either wrong then or wrong in 1850 when at home in Putnam e Co.,GA with her parents, Mary A (Allen) Register and Wiley Register. Wiley is deceased by 1860, it seems, and the mother, Mary A Register, is living with Warren and Sarah in 1860. I cannot find a will on Wiley in Putnam - some one is looking in the state archives for me, but I have not heard back. He could have died in MAcon Co., GA. Can you do research in Putnam Co., GA??
I have seen the 1870 or 80 census - - you say they were in Fulton Co.,GA by 1870?? That makes sense as two of Sarah's probable brothers had lived in Fulton Co.,GA - Osborn J and my John Cooper Register, my g-grandfather. There seems to be another brother J L D Register listed as age 19, living/working on another's farm, in 1850 in Putnam Co.,GA J L D Register enlisted in the CSA from Fulton Co.,GA. (interesting that 2 of the children had three given names)
Wiley might have been in Walton Co.,GA in 1830 - there is a listing that is written over, listing "William" then looks it was scratched out and "Wiley" written over it, and the children seem the right ages - there are 2/3 older boys and one older girl (all out of the house in 1850) listed in 1830 - in 1850 my probable John is still at home as are the Sarah, who later married Warren, and the youngest daughter, Mary A. Wiley was still taxed on land/sold land in Morgan Co GA in the 1830s; he married Mary A Allen there in 1822. I have that record.
Wiley might have been a nickname for William (??) or might have been pronounced Willy?? In 1840 in Putnam Co.,GA he was lsited as Whitey?? so it might have been pronounced Wiley, as we think; Wiley can be spelled Whiley and someone might have accidently crossed the "l" as a "t" in 1840??
Anyway Wiley appears to have been b in SC c 1801 and married just before 1820 to a lady in Beaufort Co.,SC and he had one young son in 1820; there was a cholera epedimic along the GA/SC border in 1821, and he might have lost both his first wife and son - or the son might have been left for the 1st wife's relatives to raise??
Anyway, by 1822 Wiley was in Morgan Co.,GA and marrying Mary A Allen, possible daughter of David Allen of Maorgan Co.,GA. Wiley appears to be from the line of Joshua Register (b c 1730 in NC) who came to SC c 1750s or 60s (his father was Joseph Register SR b c 1700 in VA). Joshua had sons in SC starting in the 1760s. We know the names of the sons but not all the g-sons of Joshua - the use of Jesse (name of one of Joshua's sons) in both John C and Osborn J's family and the use of the initial J - could stand for Joshua and/or Jesse is another connection to the SC Registers. (There was a Henry Cooper living near Wiley in Putnam Co., I think.) My John's name was John Cooper Register and his first son was Henry O (Osborn aftert his brother) Register.
