I am hoping to find someone around Hiawassi who has some knowledge of this family group who would have lived around Towns County in the late 1800s or early 1900s.This is my search for info on my Grandmother, Auda Ledford. ANY info you provide will be helpful. As I said I am looking for info on Auda Ledford, Hettie Ledford, M. J. Ledford (male), A. J. Ledford (male), and W. R. Ledford (male). I have been told was that Auda was from Hiawassii, Ga. She married my Grandfather, John L. Christian, just south of Chattanooga, She died in Chattanooga around 1930. Hettie also died in Chattanooga in Oct of 1942. A. J. lived in Chattanooga and I have no record of his death. M. J. was living in Birmingham and W. R. was living in St. Louis at the time of Auda's death. I was not born until 1936 and since my mother and father seperated when I was a teen I have very little info on the Ledfords from the Towns County area. There is two toumbstones not far from where Hetti and Auda are buried in Chattanooga that have the inscriptions M. M. Ledford (father) March 15, 1855 - March 9, 1927. and S. C. Ledford (mother) Dec 26, 1860 - Jan 4, 1920. These may be the parents of this family. I have been told that my father, Arvil F. Christian was 25% Cherrokee. I am not sure if this is on the Ledford side or the Christian side. But based on Hiawassii's location I think it may very well be on Auda Ledford's side of the family. ANY INFO WILL BE VERY HELPFUL!
