Re: Louisa-Allen Acree in Franklin Co. GA
Many Banks County Acrees moved to or toward Texas immediately following the Civil War.Many ended up in Nagadochess, Texas.It is highly probable that some stopped and lived in Alabama. Ny great grandfather, Jas Clayton was the son of Allem Acree of Banks Co, Gs. He out lived 3 wives, all born in Georgia but the last died in Texas.He moved to Texas after the death of his second wife in childbirth. He chose to seek his fortune in Texas because his Uncle Wylie brother of his father had previously moved there. He took his 3rd wife with hin.She died in Texas and one of his children with her remained there.Two younger children returned to Ga with him around 1904.There are Acrees in Valdosta Ga near the Ala line.Keep following the group who went to Texas.
