Re: Richard Norris, Lumpkin Co., GA
The Richard Norris you enquired about seems to have passed away by the 1860 Census. He left a wife Elizabeth, and same children you listed, enumerated in the 1860 Federal Census in Greene Co. Georgia, household #225; living next to her in House # 224 is Jacob Norris and Linney Wood Norris, who were married Nov. 23, 1819 in Greene Co. Since Richard was born c. 1815, it's possible he and Jacob were brothers?
This is the Jacob Norris who is also enumerated in the 1830 Greene Co. census believed to be associated with Samuel C. Norris and John Norris who are a few households away in the same county for that year.
Both Samuel and John came from Edgefield Co. South Carolina.
In 1870 Richard's widow, Elizabeth, shows up in Bullitt Co. Kentucky.
I'm researching Samuel C., John and Jacob and ran across this information. I know your post is nearly ten years past and you may not get this message but other's may benefit.
