Hi, searching for one of my great-grandmothers who married a Mr. Clark in GA or MS ca 1820.My Mary (no proof of maiden name) was b ca 1780, she was in MS TERR by 1800 as Mary Griffin (possibly thru a relationship).
1850 Camden GA Census enumerates a Mary P Clark b abt 1785 NY living with Thomas B. Clark b abt 1825 GA.
Per Ancestry.com public trees:It appears this Mary was nee Pettit, m John Clark b 1784 Camden GA, d 1840 Camden GA.Their listed children, all b Camden GA 1822-1835:
--Jacob Francis --Thomas B --Cader --Frederick James --Amanda M
Other names associated with my Mary:Ellison/Allison, Stewart, Griffin......possibly Hampton and Silivan/Sullivan(t) also.
I know this is a long shot, however, I'm also extremely curious how/why/when a lady from NY made her way to GA? I would appreciate any info on this Mary Pettit.
Thank you, Lynda Stewart Misner......email direct:firstname.lastname@example.org
