In Reply to: Gaffords in Ga. 1850's by Susan Sutton Perry of 415

My great-great-grandmother was Ella Gafford (Mullis).
Her parents were Mamie Ann Gafford and Eli Mullis.
Her death certificate listed Mamie Ann Gafford and Miles Gafford as her parents. Miles was really her grandfather.
Mamie and Eli never married. I was in contact with another researcher in Twiggs, Ga. She said that the family history was that Eli killed Ella's half brother Vinson White during the time Ella was pregant with Eli's child. This may be the reason they never married. It is my understanding that Mamie never married. I know she was a traveling wash woman with the lumberjacks in Wilkinson, Ga.
Mamie Ann and Jemima are the same person. I haven't found anymore information though. I have seen her name spelled Gemima, Jemima and Mamie Ann. Ella lived in Wilkinson, Twiggs, Bleckley and Bibb County.
