I am looking for any information about Georgia Lenora Alexandra.She was my Great-Grandmother. She was born in Savannah, Chatham, Georgia in 1869 and married Forest Lee Garner of Hancock County, Augusta, GA. Their son, James Rufus Garner (married Mattie Martha Howard) was my grandfather and his daughter, Exie Jean Garner (married Dillard L. Barley)is my mother.
According to family members, Grandma Garner (Georgia Lenora)was the daughter of a lady (we do not know her name)from Savannah, Ga., who married a Sea Captain from Greece (we do not know his name either). We do know that Georgia's mother died from the yellow fever outbreak in Savannah when she was small and she was taken in by another family (a woman who either was a friend of her mother's or an employee) and raised by them. The story goes, her father went to sea and when he returned, his wife had died and he went back to Greece.We do not know if he even knew he had a daughter.
We do not know if Alexandra is her father's last name or the last name of the family who took her in and raised her. According to IGI Individual Records, (www.familysearch.org)these records list her as Georgia Alexandra, but with no parents listed in her pedigree.
Anyone with any information about Georgia Lenora Alexandra (married name Garner) please contact me at the email address listed above.
