Mrs. Emma Jane Patterson Fountain

In his book "History of Wilkinson County", (pages 597-598)Victor Davidson uses a "genealogical sketch" prepared by Mrs. Emma Jane Patterson Fountain. Since the book was first published in 1930, I'm looking for a descendent that inherited her family sheets, Bible, or other information, or has further amplified her sketch before her ancestors moved to Wilkinson County, GA. Obviously, this "sketch" has become extremely important to the work of later genealogists, and coupled with scant surviving records, it has become a "building block" for other family histories.
