Did Wm & Mary Love Mizell's daughter Eliz really die in GA?
Question:Is there actually a record showing that Elizabeth Mizell, daughter of William Mizell and Mary Love,’ died in Georgia?Or was she just not listed after a move to another county?
Need help with research on ‘Hallie Ann Measles’ born 1822 in Georgia, married John Myrick ca. 1837 in Sumter County, Georgia.Listed on Sumter Co, GA 1850 census as “Steff Myrick” and on Pike Co, AL 1860 census as “Aloof Mirick.” I feel that transcription errors may have led to the spellings of Steff and Aloof, and her name is probably Aliff or this is short for Elizabeth.Elsewhere documented as Hallie Ann Measles, and I feel that her full name may have possibly been ‘Elizabeth Aliff Ann Measles’ or similar.
Notable is that William and Mary Measels are listed in Pike County, AL census records.Also notable is that John and Hallie Myrick had a son ‘Polk Owen Myrick’ who died in Bienville Parish, LA where other Measles family are also located on census records.My hunch is that ‘Hallie Ann Measles’ is Elizabeth Measles, daughter of William and Mary Love Mizell.
Per notes from Rootsweb on ‘Polk O. Myrick,” son of John Myrick and grandsonof Henry Myrick referring to “Hallie Measles” as having a brother named William in Houston County, GA:
“… the letter found in Grandmother Carrie's [Huckabay - married to Polk O. Myrick] trunk by Uncle Myron Morell Myrick … written June 6, 1872 at Toomsboro, Wilkerson County, Georgia, to his sisters and brother living in Alabama.” [from Eli Lumpkin Myrick]…. “He also said that Uncle William lived in Ft. Valley, Houston County, (now Peach County), Georgia.Don't know whether he is a Myrick or his mother's brother.”[ - - Eli Myrick had an uncle named William Myrick, and ‘Hallie Measles’ had a brother named ‘William Measles.’]
