I am trying to start a search with almost no information and I don't know where to find any. My ggrandfather's name was Sam or Samuel Carr. The information that I have is that he was from Michigan or someplace near there but he didn't get along with his father and he was either kicked out or ran away from home when he was twelve. He married and had a family, Joseph Lawson, my grandfather, Grady, G.B.( I do not know his full name) Ruby and Venice, who was mentally handicapped by Down's Syndrome. All of these people resided in Upson Co. Thomaston, Ga. between 1910 and 1984. Sam never spoke of his father or mother, and my grandfather had nothing to go to search for them. Sam was buried in Alabama, I don't know where. Since all of the people mentioned above are now passed away, I would appreciate if anyone with information would get back to me. There are very few of us left. e-mail me at Thanks so much.

ADISON ANTHONY first appeared on the Ouachita Co., AR census in 1850. We have no record prior to that. He said he was born in VA. in about 1829. No civil war exists. I am thinking he could have been a Quaker. His wife was Primitive Baptist and left land for church & cemetery in Bearden, AR. This is where many family members were buried. Family tale was that Adison killed a man and his father put him on a fast horse to leave. We have no record of any family members or proof that he was from VA. He married Esther Mason who was born in Yalobusha Co., MS in 1835. Her father, Phillip Mason died in 1839. Mrs. Mason married Elkanah Sullivent and they moved to Ark about 1844. No other information in available.
