Ellifair Wade/Lydia Wade/Benjamin Franklin Hawkins jr

Looking for information on Great Granddad's (Benjamin Franklin Hawkins Jr)first wife Ellifair Wade. They were married in Dooly county, Georgia (now Crisp) Jan 1 1874. Need parents, birth date, when died, and where buried. Other than the marriage information, I have had no luck in finding any data online. I have also visited several cemeteries around Cordele but have had no luck.
Benjamin was the son of Benjamin Franklin Hawkins Sr (NC) and Malissa Stewart (SC), born abt 1850 in Dooly county and died in 1929.

His second wife was Elizabeth Lydia Ann (Liza) Wade, (my great grandmother) married Sep 27, 1877, also in Dooly county GA. She was the daughter of Ashley Thomas Wade and Martha Atha Caroline Royal and was born Aug 4, 1853 in Jennings, FL. I have found several of the Wade family graves, including her parents, but have not located Lydia's. Some online family trees show her death date as Jun 29, 1951, but my uncle says that is wrong. He is sure she died before that. There is a Lydia S Wade buried at Zion Hope Cemetery in Crisp county with the same reported death date, but that is a different person---she married a Wade. I don't know if Ellifair and Lydia are related. The information provided by Grady Wade did not show her as sister of Lydia.

Benjamin's third wife was Lithy (Litha) Woods, borm 1846, died 1928. They were married Feb 24, 1898 and are both buried at Rocky Creek Primitive Baptist Church, Worth Co, Ga.
