In Reply to: Isabelle Yearwood, dau. of Perry. by Judy Rountree Mason of 519

Found Isabella was a witness on an affidavit filed by her sister, Mary Evaline (Yearwood) Proctor after the death of Mary's husband, Hiram. The Claim of Deceased Officers and Soldiers was filed in Hall County to obtain Hiram's back pay from the Government. One of the affidavits in Hiram J. Proctor's Confederate Service Records states:

"Also at the same time personally came M.A. Smith and Isabella Earwood who being duly sworn depose and say that they both are personally acquainted with Mary E. Proctor who has made and [ ia] the foregoing affidavit in their presence and they believe she is the person she represents herself to be. That she was known and recognized as the wife of Hiram Proctor deceased and that they continued to live together as man and wife up to the time that the said Hiram Proctor entered the service of the Confederate States. They further believe that the declaration in said affidavit are true and that they have no interest in this claim --

The foregoing affidavits were sworn to and subsribed before me and I certify that the foregoing Witnesses M.A. Smith and Isabella Earwood are credible and disinterested witnesses and that I have no interest in this claim.

Given under my hand and official signature this October 16th 1862
