I have traced my greatgrandmother Ginnet Towns to Dougherty County, Albany Georgia. She is the mother of Fannie Tharpe my grandmother on the 1880 Census and probably a slave. She is listed as coming from VA. The trails goes cold there, but in 1860 there is an overseer named Frank Tharpe on the Towns Plantation. I got Fannie's death certificate and Frank Tharpe is listed as her father...HELP!! Where do I go from there? Are there plantation records of Towns Plantation? A slave record? Fannie went to Americus Georgia in Sumter County and married Gus McCullough. I found his dad (Augustus McCollough) on the 1870 census for Sumter. This means he was probably a slave in Sumter County also. Are there slave records for this area? Plantation listings and records? I don't know where to go from here, I can't believe I got this far !!
