GEORGIA LAWINGS
Posted by: debbie allen (ID *****3033) Date: May 29, 2007 at 10:51:11

I AM TRYING TO FIND OUT ANYTHING ABOUT NANCY LAWING, WHO HAD A SON NAMED WILLIAM EMORY LESTER LAWING (MY GRANDFATHER). THEY MOVED TO ANDERSON, SOUTH CAROLINA FROM RABUN COUNTY, GEORGIA IN OR AROUND 1900. IT HAS BEEN TOLD THAT THE SON WAS BORN ILLEGITIMATELY AND WAS THE SON OF A DR. PARKER FROM THE SAME AREA. ANOTHER SOURCE STATES THAT NANCY LAWING WAS A PARKER BEFORE MARRIAGE. HOWEVER, NO RECORDS CAN BE FOUND REGARDING HER BIRTH OR A MARRIAGE. THE SON WENT BY THE NAME OF EMORY LESTER LAWING. HE MARRIED BEULAH ETHEL WELBORN WHOSE FAMILY WAS FROM PERSIMMON, GEORGIA. THEY HAD SIX CHILDREN-DELLA ROSE, RAYMOND LESTER, DELIA CAROL, WILLIAM HAROLD (MY FATHER), THOMAS HOWARD, AND LAYLON COOLIDGE. DELIA CAROL LAWING JONES BORN IN 1918 IS THE LAST SURVIVING MEMBER OF THEIR IMMEDIATE FAMILY. WE CAN FIND NO RECORDS OF THIS FAMILY BEFORE GRANDFATHER. ALL WE KNOW IS HIS MOTHER'S NAME AND WHERE THEY CAME FROM. IF ANYONE HAS ANY INFORMATION WHATSOEVER, PLEASE E-MAIL TO ME. I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY INFO I CAN GET.
