I am trying to find the parents of Alford P. Whatley who married Zilpha Lawhorn in 1865. Also A.P.'s sister Laura married Zilpha's nephew, David S. Lawhorn about 15 years later. They lived in Preston, Ga at one time and Nancy Whatley, the mother-in-law lived with them.
I am desperate to find out what happened to A.P.'s father. On the 1860 census A.P. was the "man of the house" and he went into the Army two years later in 1862, coming back after the war to marry Zilpha in 1865.
If anyone has info, please help!!! firstname.lastname@example.org
