I have just rec'd marriage lic. info on the marriage of my grandparents, Margaret Pearl Disharoon to George Harris in Cleveland, OH 12/4/1912.The printed app. was hand written by the Rev. A. A. Shaw so this may account for Margaret's name written as DISHRON. On this app Margaret P.s father is given as BETHEL and her mother as JOSEPHINE BAILEY.
On my father's birth records, Margaret states she was born in Canton, GA. On Margaret's brother JOHN EDWARD DISHAROON's social security application his parents are listed as BETHEL QUILLAN and ELVERIA BAILEY and as having been born in Marble Hill GA in 1900.His obit states that 3 sisters and 1 brother preceeded him in death but did not give their names.
I only recently came across the 1880 Dug Rd., Pickens Co., GA census with BETHEL and LUVIRA DISHAROON, both 18, living next door to MARTHA DISHAROON, DIVORCED, along with several children.
In Mary Markley's 10/3/01 message referring to this same census suggested that the ex-husband (and possibly father to Bethel) might be Erwin Disharoon, 59, who later married Abagail, 26.
This info made me think that some of the pieces to this puzzle were perhaps falling into place...
