Re: George W Mikell - Bulloch Co, GA 1880 Census
My great grandmother was Wealthy Ann Rigdon Mikell, sister to your Eliza Rigdon. I do not have proof but have always believed, from the things the older members of the family said, that her son's father was George Washington Mikell. He was called "Wash" and he never married. He is buried in the Mikell Family Cemetery near Statesboro, Ga.
Do you have photos of Eliza, Wealthy, America and Martha? I have all but Martha and would be happy to share copies if you are interested.
Wash Mikell and his six brothers all fought in the Civil War and several of them are buried in the Family Cemetery along with their parent, John Mikell and Catherine Lowther Mikell.
Would be happy to correspond with you. e-mail me if you are interested.
