Georgia Turner Godwin had 13 children,9 Living.and for a period of time She and husband lived in Arkansas(roughly 1875-1880) but not during a Census year. Because in 1880 she and Husband were found in Census in Henry County, TN. It was my hopes that the family of the oldest child Oscar Easley Godwin born 1872 and died 1952 in Jefferson City, TN might be able to help with that information. Since he was the oldest child, but they don't know anything either, to my knowledge.
I had also thought Court records where Georgia Ann's parents died would be a clue, but even thought I have search, I cannot find any Probate or Custody records.
I show oldest child Oscar born in Grangier TN abt 1872 and the first Census I could find Georgia and husband Samuel Godwin in was 1880 in Henry County, TN. That may be where they marriage date was gathered from.
There is another story abt Georgia Ann walking across the River that was frozen and crossed over into TN where she met Samuel Godwin. I am looking for sources and facts, not stories. Sometimes those stories get distorted being handed down from Generation to Generation.
You don't know how much I appreciate what you have undertaken to help on this profile.
