I can't say for sure but I think the John Brady listed with Jane Coalson in the 1880 Worth Co. Ga. census may be John Yearby. If you can take a look at the census record, you will see that the James Brady that is listed also, has parents born in Ireland and Georgia while John (Brady) has parents born in Georgia only. I believe the census taker miswrote the last name for John and wrote it as Brady instead of Yearby because the boy named James' last name was Brady. This John is the same age that John Yearby would be. This is just a thought! I cannot find him after that.

Do you know anything about whether Elizabeth Roberts was married to Newman and then he ran off to Florida with the daughter Josephine? Elizabeth took the name Colson for some reason! I wonder if they divorced??
