- BRADBERRY, STANLEY
on Wednesday, June 4, 1997
STANLEY/BRADBERRY connection. James STANLEY moved his family
from NC to Henry Co. AL ca 1825. James BRADBERRY moved from
NC about the same time and settled his family in Pike co. AL.
I think that James STANLEY'S wife was Sarah BRADBERRY, daughter
of James BRADBERRY. James & Sarah's first son was named James
Bradberry STANLEY (my gg-grandad) In 1855 J.B.STANLEY moved his
family to Trinity Co. TX. James STANLEY died in Henry Co, ca
1845 & James BRADBERRY died in Pike, Barbour or Russell Co.
Any information would be appreciated.

- MOYE, SCOTT
on Tuesday, August 26, 1997
According to the family Bible, my great-grandmother's parents
were Walter and Virginia SCOTT. The obituary of my
great-grandmother, Augusta Lee SCOTT MOYE, says that she was
born in Lee County, GA; my grandfather's Social Security
affidavit says she was born in Calhoun County, GA--but if she
was born either place, her family didn't stay there very long.
Augusta Lee married my great-grandfather, William Henry MOYE, in
Cuthbert, Randolph Co. GA, in 1887.
I have finally succeeded in finding the family in the 1870 and
1880 census. In 1870, they were living in Glennville, Russell
V. A. SCOTT, wf, 40, born GA
Walton (?) SCOTT, wm, 15, born AL
John SCOTT, wm, 9, born GA
Virginia SCOTT, wf, 8, born GA
Augusta SCOTT, wf, 4, born GA
In 1880, they were in Clay County, GA:
V. A. SCOTT, wf, 50, NC/NC/NC
J. S. SCOTT, wm, 19, GA//NC
Gussie SCOTT, wf, 14, GA//
Virginia did not identify herself as single, married, or widowed--
why? And clearly one of the two census takers got her state of
birth wrong--but which one? And what was her maiden name?
I'd like to find out what happened to Walter between 1865, when my
great-grandmother was born, and 1870, and why the family was moving
around so often, from Alabama in 1855 to Georgia during the War,
then back to Alabama by 1870 and back to Georgia again by 1880.
I'd also very much like to find some descendants of my
great-grandmother's siblings in the hopes that they might be
able to shed some light on this. On the basis of the 1900
Soundex, I suspect John *may* have wound up in Early County GA:
John SCOTT, wm, born Oct. 1860 in GA, living in Arlington, Early Co. GA
Emma SCOTT, Oct. 1859, GA
Connie, son, Jan. 1882, GA
Bernard, Mar. 1884
Cotton, S. Dec. 1887
Charley R. Nov. 1889
Sidney S., Sept. 1893
John A. Apr.1895
Mattie A. Dec. 1896
Emma M. Jan. 1899
Any and all leads will be greatly appreciated.
