By the original marriages of Jasper Co., Ga. I can document marriage of William Whorton to DOLLY SANSOM.

The 1820 census of Jasper Co., Ga. shows two Whortons in Jasper Co., Ga. in 1820 and both are adjacent to father and son Sansom's -one is adjacent to Micajah Sansom, Sr. and one is adjacent to Micajah Sansom, Jr.

Micajah Sr. married Dorothy (Dolly) Gibson in 1771/2 in Lunenburg Co. Va. (Minutes of Meherrin Baptist Church, Lunenburg Co., Va. He is grandfather of Dolly Malone, Artemissa Malone and Miranda Clinton Malone.

Micajah, Jr. md. Lemila Vann 6 Nov. 1818 Jasper Co., Ga.-he was b. 1792 and he is a son of Micajah, Sr. and his wife by my documentation. In the Superior Court Minutes of Walton Co., Ga. Micajah, Jr. sold some 83 1/2 acres of land drawn by the orphans of Daniel Malone to settle a suit against Dolly and Jeptha Whorton. The other shares of this land are in Newton Co., Ga. deeds where the other two orphans (Miranda Clinton Malone and his brother-in-law Alexander Wallace (in right of his wife Artemissa Malone Wallace) sold their 1/3's of the total 250 acres of land in Newton Co., Ga. but originally Walton Co., Ga when drawn in the 1820 land lottery by the "orphans of Daniel Malone". Micajah, Sr. died in Newton Co., Ga. ca. 1829 in Newton Co., Ga. and named in his will his granddaughter, Artemissa Malone.

I believe that Dolly Sansom md. William Whorton is a d/o Micajah, Sr. and Dorothy Gibson Sansom.
In the newspaper, The Southern Banner, Miranda Clinton Malone was security on William Whorton on a debt owed to a George Glenn (may have been married to Hannah Sansom).
The other securities were William and Nathaniel Harris.

The names of Miranda's children were: William D.; Elizabeth; Nancy Ann; James Madison; John Griffin; Sarah; Dolly Adaline; Artemissa; Margaret; Doctor Alexander, Francis Marion Malone.

The names of Artemissa Malone Wallace's children were: William (md. Sarah Landers)-my husband's line-; Mary Ann md. Andrew Jackson Vickery; Francis Marion; Thomas (named after Alex's brother Thomas); James; Jane; Elizabeth; Sarah; George Washington; Miranda Clinton and Emmeline.
Frank and Clint, George W. all lived in 1870 in Wesson, Copiah Co., Ms.; William had died. Thomas and James are not in census but several of the sons died in the Civi War. The name Emmeline is seen in the Sansom family.
She is later called Emma and she md. a J.D. Gunther and is buried in a plot said also to be occupied by her parents in Wesson City Cemetery, Wesson, Copiah Co., Ms.

Jeptha Whorton is in the 1840 census of Benton Co., Alabama (later Calhoun) as Jeppha Horton. I am sure it is Jeptha Whorton as he is near others known to and associated with him-and Artemissa and Alex Wallace. Alexander Wallace and Jeptha were joint grantees of land in Alabama. I am trying to locate by the land description where that land is now.

In Alexander Wallace's father (William Wallace) estate returns in 1837 in Newton Co., Ga., a John Whorton buys from the estate. Alexander was left $5 and some land jointly with his siblings William, Thomas and sisters Margery, Francis and Abigail that was to be sold by their father's executor (Redding C. Shipp). His receipt (in the form of his middle name which was Almed) is shown receiving his $5 as is his brother, Thomas. Thomas and his wife, Martha (Bently) Wallace must have also moved to Alabama when Alexander and Artemissa (and perhaps Jeptha and Dolly). Thomas' widow is in the census next to an Abigail Bently and near Martha's father Isaac and brother John Bently, and if I recall is close to Jeptha in census also.

By 1850, Alexander and Artemissa were in Tallapoosa Co., Ala. and 1860 in Mobile Co., Alabama. I am not sure when they went to Ms. but Alex ran the pipes to the Wesson Cotton Mill before he died. Some of their living children are in the 1870 census, but I can't find Artemissa in a 1870 census unless the census taker messed up and have her age as her daughter's and spelled her name Melissa, not Artemissa. Artemissa is a widow (as Artebrissa) in 1880 census and living with her are Reid and Vickery grandsons.

None of Jeptha's kids named Bartlett, though. I think William md. Dolly Sansom 1813 can't be a sibling to Mirandy Clinton and Artemissa as they are all same ages in census-born ca. 1810-11-12 and before marriage of Dolly Sansom to William Whorton.
