I'm helping a friend with his genealogy and we got a copy of his grandfather's death cert (William Clayton Vickers born 3-18-1876 FL) and from that we know that his dad was JW Vickers and his Mom's maiden name was Davis.
I believe I have them in the 1880 Jefferson Co. FL census:
JW Vickers 31 al ga ga Amanda E. 22 fl sc sc (would be Amanda Davis, daughter of Noah Davis) ME (f) 3 fl al fl WC (m) 2 FL al al
In 1900, Thomas Co. GA:
Richard Davis40 Hattie wife 29 Susan 6 Vickers, Wm. c nephew 22 Emily niece 21
IN the 1900 Mitchell Co. GA census we have who I think is Wm. C Vickers parents and siblings.I have no clue why Wm C. and his sister Emily are living with their aunt and uncle at this time but, here is the reading:
Vickers JW 2/1849 RA 1/1858 MA daughter 10/1880 JT son 1/1890 JC son 3/1893 LM daughter 1/1896
1910 JW and Amanda Vickers are in Mitchell Co. GA, still there in 1920 and 1930.
I'd like your input as to what line of Vickers these folks belong to.I think the Caroline, wife of William is Caroline Golden, married 1847 Henry Co. AL.I have no clue who John W. Vickers wife, Amanda, was.
The center of this search as I said in the beginning is William Clayton Vickers born 3-8-1876, died 1-2-1945 in EAstland Co. TX.I'm just getting started on this but I have no clue why William Clayton Vickers came to TExas, seems like his family stayed in GA and the Davis family stayed in FL.I don't pick Wm. Clayton Vickers up in the 1910 census but do in the 1920 (Hunt Co. TX) and 1930 (Eastland Co. TX).
