In my forum message 555 highway 81 should be highway 20. I agree Atkins should be Akin. I have no info on Henry Clay Tarpley.
I do not think William Hampton Tarpley was a Jr since his father was Robert W. Tarpley.
I do not have a copy of Robert W. Tarpley's will. I copied a write up of it on page 283 of a Will Book from a book (1872-1894) from the Cobb County Library as follows. "Page 62 Henry County, Last Will and Testament of Robert Tarpley, signed 11 November 1870. To my beloved wife, Lucinda Caroline Tarpley, all my land, real and personal property during her natural life or widowhood for the purpose os raising out lawful children.Should my wife marry, all property to be sold and proceeds equally divided among the children that I have by my said last wife, Lucinda Caroline.Appoint son, Johm R. Tarpley Executor. Witness John B. Tarpley. W.H. Tarpley, Milton Akin (I wrote the above will). Probated 5 January 1875. A.A. Lemon, Ord"
