|I am researching the Robert Iverson ARRINGTON family of Jefferson County, Georgia. He was born Jan. 23, 1839 in Stellaville, GA and died Dec. 24, 1915. He and his wife, Laura Ann ATKINSON, born May 22, 1843 and died Dec. 18, 1894, were both buried in the Mount Mariah Campground cemetery.|
They had four children, one of which is my paternal Grandmother, Eula Irene Arrington Walker. She listed in her scrapbook her mother's parents as Zaccaharia Atkinson, born 1808, and Anna Dye, possibly of North Carolina.
It appears that the ARRINGTON and ATKINSON families were close friends coming from North Carolina before settling in Georgia, as several ARRINGTON children married ATKINSON children.
Any information on these two families would be greatly appreciated.
