Waits Family Genealogy Forum
I'm searching for the parents of William M. Waits, born Jan. 1, 1822 (according to his tombstone in Cleburne Co., AL). According to censuses, he was born in GA. He married Mary E. Treadaway in 1845 in Floyd Co., GA, and was in the 1850 Randolph Co., AL census, then moved to Borden Springs/Palestine area of present day Cleburne Co., AL by the late 1850s. He and Mary had about 10 children . . . some of whom stayed in GA, others who moved on to Texas.
He may have been the son of Samuel Waits, who married Ann Eaton, in Hall Co., GA in May, 1822. This Samuel Waits was in the 1830 Campbell Co., GA census and in the 1840 Chattooga Co., GA census (and in between may have been in the Hamilton Co., TN area). He may have been the Samuel Watts who is listed in the 1850 Chattooga Co. mortality census.
Any help appreciated -- Charlene
