I have been trying to find my great grandmother's parents. A cousin thought that she was born in Worth Co. GA but I have unable to find any listings for a Eva Nettie Hays born in Worth Co. GA. She shows up on the 1910 census for Turner Co. GA with 3 children by a previous marriage but in 1910 she is  married to Joshua Owens. Would appreciate any help. Thank you.

The children by previous marriage are :

Lily Houston born abt 1900

Niche (nick) Houston born 4/22/1902

Dock Houston born abt 1904

Their fathers name was Henry Houston. I found Henry and Eva's marriage license in Worth Co, GA for March 27th 1898.

Thank you so much

Lillian:     What you have found,Leroy and Josh are correct.If you look at the

original 1910 Census with Josh Owens,Lilley,Niche,and Dock are listed as

step children, When researching always look at the original census record,as in

this case it tells you many things,The other issue,Josh and Leroy may have been

brothers or some other relation.There are 11 children in 1910,8 are Josh first

marriage children,3 are Eva children.You have done well in your research.

Here is a lead for you. Marriage record for John D. Hays to Martha Brown

April 1856, Worth County Georgia. Martha died Aug 15 1909 in Texas.Look at

1860-1870-1880 Census for these two,see if any EVA  Nettie listed.Georgia did

not keep early records ,but i do not remember when they started.
