The VENABLE HOMEPLACE "Potash"Updated February 12, 2006
William Jasper VENABLE and Jane HENDERSON were married in the Coweta/Heard Co., GA area in 1849 and were counted in the Federal Census of 1850 along with a new baby girl.
William Jasper was son of William VENABLE and Elizabeth McCARTY.He was born Georgia about 1821.
Jane was born in South Carolina to Alfred HENDERSON and Peachy HUGGINS about 1831.
They remained in the Coweta,Heard County area through 1860 and then appear in Polk Co., GA in the 1870 census.
Sometime after arriving in Polk Co. they aquired a farm a little west of Cedartown that became known as "Potash" There they lived until their deaths soon after the turn of the century.
William and Jane had at least ten children. I have information on six of these.
