I am looking for my Argo family.My gfather is Perry L Argo,born Nov 1886 mar Minnie Shiver d abt 1913).He had brothers Russell; Limuel born July 1881; Rufus, born Sept 16, 1883 (mar Esther Poole 1st and cora ? 2nd) died Sept 15, 1924 or Jan 1, 1925 and sisters Tommie Lou Argo (Mar William C. Smith)died Sept 1977 and Beulah Mamie Argo born March 1891 (mar (I think) Luther S. Bailey) died April 1 1978.
All of the above were born in Ga - Rufus moved to NC and died there.
1990 coweta cty census has Limuel (18) as h of h, with Perry L (13) Tommie Lou (10) Beulah M (9) and an Aunt Lydia Jones (wid) 25 and a niece Ola M Jones (5) Neither parent is present in this household.I found Rufus listed in the household of James M Argo (son of Nimrod) as nephew (15) in 1900 Palmetto, Campbell, Ga census.Cannot find Russell anywhere.Also cannot find any of these siblings in 1910 census anywhere. Rufus has sons Leonard Waymond Argo and Russell Mayfield Argo.Perry had son Carl and daughter Jennie Belle. Tommie Lou had son William C. Jr, don't know about Beulah Mamies children, but I know she had some.) If any one knows anything about this family please let me know.I especially want to know who the parents of these siblings were and what happened to them to leave their children alone. If Rufus is James M's nephew, that means he is a son of James' brother!If Lydia is an Aunt of Limuel (who I understand was called Nim) and Perry etc, then she must be a sister of Perrys' Father or Mother.Since she is married, I dont know her maiden name, but a sister of James, Sweet Lillie married a J. D. Jones (also in Coweta County in 1891 which would be a good age for Ola to be 5). All this leads to these kids being the grandchildren of Nimrod (the Ga one) My mother said she thought Perry's parents were Perry Sr. and Mary Johnson but I can find NO record of this couple ever existing anywhere.PLEASE HELP> Thanks, Maxine
