Thank you for responding to my post.I have tried several ways to get in touch with you to discuss the Stephens family of Clarke County. I have found references to a publication by you "Joshua Stephens and His Descendants" and would like to obtain a copy if possible.
I agree there were no Paulks in Randolph Co. in 1850.William I. was in Talbot Co., GA in 1850.His wife Julia Ann, son George and his sister Weltha were enumerated with him. I first misread the census (it's very difficult to read the handwriting) and thought he was much older than he was.I have since corrected myself.I have him marrying Julia Ann Gammel, November 10, 1846 in Monroe County.
My wife is a descendant of David and Weltha through their youngest daughter Ella and James Thomas Mitchel.I have information concerning their descendants if you are interested.
Do you have a source for the parents of William and Weltha?I see the information about Samuel Paulk and Jane Ingram but have yet to find traces of them.
I would appreciate any information you are willing to share. My e mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
