States: Georgia: Talbot
An item in the Southern Christian Advocate, early newspaper in Georgia, refers to my grgrgrandfather Henry Mims b. 1797 in Jones Co Ga, d. June 16, 1864.in Marion Co Texas: The article reads "Died near Auburn, Macon County, Alabama, 18 August 1841, Mrs. A. A. Duke, wife of Hamilton Duke & dau. of Col. H. Mims, formerly of Talbot County, Georgia, Sep. 17, 1841".
I am trying to locate (1) the family of Hamilton Duke. I know Hamilton was in Talbotton at the same time as Henry Mims (1830-1838) and was hoping someone might have info on Hamilton’s family, and (2) Henry married Sarah Wimberly. I know she and Henry were close to John Wimberly and his son Lewis D Wimberly, I just cannot make the connection. Thanks for your help…...Pat Tolliver.
