Wiley G. Marchman/GA 1810-1883/Barnes Connections
Posted by: Brett Barnes (ID *****2866) Date: September 03, 2006 at 18:23:30

Hello,

I'm researching Wiley George Marchman who was born in Georgia July 10, 1810 and died in Carroll County, Georgia on May 20, 1883. He married Sarah Moore February 26, 1834. They joined the Bethesda Baptist Church in Carroll Co. in 1863 and are buried there.
I believe Wiley to be a son of John Marchman and Elizabeth (Betsy) Barnes Marchman. John and Elizabeth married sometime prior to 1813, when they were found in Baldwin County, Georgia. Elizbeth was dealing with her father's, Jethro Barnes, estate settlement at that time.
In 1831, in Henry County, Georgia, a John Marchman left land to his son, M. G. Marchman. I have not been able to find an M. G. Marchman in any records of that period in Georgia. I believe the deed was misread and should read "W. G. Marchman". In an ancient (1999) posting on another forum, a Marchman researcher and descendant of Wiley states that Wiley was "definately" a son of John and Elizabeth Marchman. However, I cannot find any proof.
Is anyone out there working this line?
I also found, on another forum, that John Marchman was supposedly a son of Charles and Tabitha Marchman of early 1800's Georgia. Any ideas on that?

Thanks,
Brett Barnes
