Hi All. Just beginning my search and need help. My name is William Tom Cearley, go by Tom. My father was Tom Watson Cearley, born 14 Aug 15 in Ball Ground, GA and died 1980. His mother was Maude Cearley, maiden name Thacker. Also from BallGound (1882-1946). My first hurdle is that all I know about my paternal grandfather is that his name was William. He and Maude married around 1900 somewhere in Cherokee County GA. They had three children; Lillian, Dorthy, and my father. William left the family (don't know if a divorce) prior to the 1920 census. Supposedly remarried at some point and died around Marrietta somewhere. No birth records, marriage licence, etc. Would appreciate any help or info that may help me identify William specifically. Can supply a few more details. Thanks.
