George Traylor family of Troup County, Georgia

  of 896

I have recently found out that I have Traylor ancestors. They are George H.(or F) and Synthe (sp?) Traylor. I am looking at the 1850 census and having a hard time making out the spelling of Synthe. I have seen it spelled several ways...including Sinthia.

The 1850 census of Troup County, Georgia shows George H. Traylor as 50 years old. It shows Synthe as 49 years old. They have the following children living with them. George (23), Mary (19), G -----(sp? 16 year old male) Synthe (16), John, (14), William (13) George R (11).

George and Synthe Traylor were,also, the parents of Martha Ann(e) Traylor. She married Simeon Hammond. Simeon died 9/20/1846 and his father, William Hammond, died 9/10/1846. (coincidence?) In the 1850 census Martha Traylor Hammond lived next door to her parents, George and Synthe Traylor. The census shows that Martha had four children. They were Mary M. (born 1840) Synthe E. (born about 1842), Sarah V. (born about 1844) and William T. Hammond (born about 1846).

Mary M. Hammond was my great grandmother. She was the wife of William R. Davidson of Troup County.

I am getting the above names from the 1850 census and the spelling of some of the Traylor names may be off. Please contact me, if you can give me the correct spelling or you are connected to this family.
