Do you have any McAFee's listed in your files on OXFORDS in Georgia ?I am seeking any data on the daughter of DAVID OXFORD who is NANCY C. OXFORD and her husband BERRY McAFEE who are on the 1850 WALKER CO. GA Census, when his younger brother SPENSER ( A. ) McAFEE was then living with the family.Spencer ( Spenser ) returned to his mothers home in CHEROKEE CO. GA and is also on her later 1850 CHEROKEE Co. GA Census after being on his brothers earlier 1850 Walker Co. GA Census.Their mother is ELVIRA McAFEE shown on the 1850 Cherokee Co. GA Census with her children including Spencer McAfee shown below as SPENSER McAFEE.Both Berry and Spencer McAFee would soon move to ARKANSAS.
1850 Walker County, Georgia CensusAug. 8, 1850 enumerated in Walker Co. GA by A. M. Reid, Ass't Marshal:

Living 2 doors away is URIAH HICKS age 37 and wife Virena Jane Whittle b. 1821 TN ( either Sevier or Knox Co. TN )In this line of HICKS are many ( over 65 ) SPARKS from MD to Cocke Co. TN.Interesting to note is that the first wife of Spencer McAfee was an EVELINE SPARKS.
Some are listing that SAMUEL & BATHSHEBA BARRETT OXFORD are parents of JONATHAN OXFORD born Aug. 06, 1772 in Burke Co. NC who died 1850 in WALKER CO. GA.
I have a JONATHAN WALKER of that description listed being the father to DAVID OXFORD born FEB. 02, 1802 and Jonathan's wife's name is ELIZABETH WHITE born abt. 1774 Buncombe Co. NC.It appears that the following census's may be for this same DAVID OXFORDwhose daughter NANCY C. OXFORD married our BERRY McAFEE and lived in Walker Co. GA in 1850.. . . and we are all trying desparately to find out more on BERRY McAFEE as we know that NANCY C. OXFORD McAFEE married a WILLLIAM AUTERSON in BERRY Co.MO and then moved to AR with her McAfee children.Nancy's first husband BERRY McAFEE born abt. 1824 in NC or GA had supposedly died about 1863 ( possibly died in either AR or MO ) and then she remarried to AUTERSON.
Per my files they show that DAVID OXFORD b. 1802 Buncombe Co. NC married SUSANNAH TURNER on July 17, 1823 in Habersham Co. GA.Susannah Turner born abt. 1812 and I have her listed as DAVID OXFORDS first wife, with his 2nd wife being an ANNA FISHER.DOES THIS SOUND RIGHT to you ??The last child I show for SUSANNAH TURNER OXFORD is named SALLIE OXFORD born about 1835.Sallie's sister NANCY C. OXFORD born about 1832 and is the wife of our BERRY McAFEE.
DAVID OXFORD's records in my own files shows :

3 females age 5 & under 10( one is daughter NANCY C. OXFORD who md. BERRY McAFEE ) 1 female age 20 & under 30( Anna Fisher listed b. 1805 NC would have been age 35 then )
Living in Lumpkin Co. GA also is JONATHAN OXFORD & wife both age of 60 & under 70, who are parents to DAVID OXFORD.Anna Fisher b. 1805 Lincoln Co. NC is listed as 2nd wife of David Oxford and that they married on 17 Feb. 1839 in Lumkin Co. GA.If so, then the age of Anna Fisher Oxford may be incorrect or the census data above showing the only female of age to be a wife to David Oxford was in age range of 20 to 30, and in 1840, Anna Fisher if born in 1805 NC would have been age 35, making her older than the female listed age 20 to 30 in this census.
