The following names and families were listed on the 1870 Walker County, GA, Census as being in "Fricks Gap" (Pigeon Mountain area)
I will not type the last name for each unless it is different from Rape. I will list their given name, age at census, sex, and where born.
Dwelling no. 686
Archibald 60 M N.C.
Margaret 45 F GA
Martha L. 17 F GA
Exer. L 15 F GA
Julia A. 12 F GA
Also in this same dwelling:
Cordell, Mary M. 30 F GA
Cordell, Josiah G. 5 M GA
I will not elaborate on the difference in the names and ages shown on the above that do not match. This is exactly as shown on the Census pages.
Alfred Rape 20 M Labor, Farm listed in the household of James Hixon, Farmer.
I know this to be true since the Hixson family on my paternal side were in this area and wife's Dad had told me this in the past. When James Hixson moved his family to Walker County, GA, after a family squabble, James dropped the "S" from his last name.
Josiah P. Rape 23 M GA Farm Laborer
Sarah Rape 27 F. GA
