Ok, I found that the libraries here are a wealth of information, a friendly reference librarian in Waycross, GA has been able to locate a couple obituaries and things for me. His name is James Britton and his work email address is: If he finds anything for you he can make copies and send them to you for a small fee (that has to be paid in advance). this is the website for the Huxford Genealogical Institute. Don't let the appearance throw you off, I think their work is pretty good. In fact, I am waiting on a copy of "Pioneers of The Wiregrass" that I have on order at my local library. Early families from Wayne County have been profiled in this series of books. Also, the Huxford Institute is conducting DNA testing for descendants of Wiregrass families. I haven't gotten quite that far into it yet, but I might someday. This is a collection of Wiregrass family trees that I am waiting to be approved for.

I have most of these books on order at my library, but you might be able to find them in CA as well:

Eric Denty, Portraits of the Past: A Pictorial History of Wayne County (Marceline, Mo.: D-Books Publishing, 2003).

Margaret Coleman Jordan, Wayne Miscellany ([Jesup, Ga.:], privately printed, 1976).

Bobby M. Martin, ed., Wayne County, Georgia: Its History and Its People (Dallas, Tex.: Curtis Media, 1990).

George White, Wayne County, Georgia, History and Biographies: Taken from Memoirs of Georgia and Historical Collection[s] of Georgia by George White (Signal Mountain, Tenn.: Mountain Press, 2001).

If I can think of anything else, I will have to look at my notes again and see if I have any other good leads for you.
Hope this is helpful!
