The Leatherwood Family is in the 1860 Census of Campbell County, GA
Shaddrick Leatherwood age 47 born in S.C. around 1813
Delitha Leatherwood age 51 born in GA around 1809
William Leatherwood age 16
Mary Leatherwood age 11

The Leatherwood Family is in the 1870 Census of Walker County, GA
Shadrick Leatherwood age 61 born in S.C. around 1809
Telitha Leatherwood age 64 born in S.C. around 1806
Mary J. Wood age 22 in GA born around 1848, daughter
William F. Wood age 2 born in GA around 1868, grandson

The Leatherwood Family is in the 1880 Census of Catoosa County, GA
Shadrick Leatherwood age 60 born in S.C. around 1820, widower
Mary J. Leatherwood age 29 born in GA around 1851, widowed
William F. Leatherwood age 11 born in GA around 1869, grandson

Delitha must have passed on between the 1871 & 1880 census and Shadrack after the 1880 census

I found records where the Finley brothers were farmed out to Benjamin Smith and his sister in the mid 1840s from the Georgia Archives. Benjamin Smith later moved to Randolph County, Alabama in the 1850s. The Finley boys are with
Benjamin Smith and sister in the 1850 census of Campbell County, GA. I am pretty sure that Delitha Nations Finley Leatherwood's mother was a Smith, so my guess is that the Finley boys were with kin. Somestimes the Finley name is spelled Findley, Finly, Fenley, & etc.

My John M. Finley married in Randolph Co., AL around 1858. He had two children, a girl and boy. John M. Finley was killed in the war on Oct. 7, 1864. His brother Jeremiah was captured and died in a POW camp, so both of Delitha's boys by the Finley marriage were causalities of the Civil War.

Thank you for getting in touch with me and I am looking forward to getting more
info from you.
