I hope you are still out there. I think I have a connection but am not sure exactly. In the 1850 Cherokee Cty. GA Census, page 507B there is the family of Wm Griffin (24), Mary A(18), Martha (1) and James J (1/12). The next family is David McElroy (30), Martha (32), Sarah F.(8). The next family is Thomas Griffin.
I am almost positve that Sarah F. McElroy is my ggggrandmother. She was supposedly born in Cherokee County. I also believe that David McElroy's wife is Martha Ann Elizabeth Palmer (Palmore). There were a Martha A. E. Palmer and a David J. Mcleroy married in Walton County on 15 Jul 1841.
It would make sense that Martha Palmore is the sister of Mary Griffin who lived next door. This is a lot of loose facts that seem to tie together. I do not know why the McElroy's were in Cherokee County. They were married in Walton Co. I know that by 1860, Sarah F. was back in Walton County and married.
I would like to hear from you about my conjecture. I have had a very hard time with this Palmore/McElroy line, but your posting seems to help tie things together.
