Hello... My name is Michael Walker, I live in Chicago, Il. I have recently started researching my family tree. One of the things I discovered is that on my grand father Milton Floyd Walker's death certificate, it was listed that his mothers name was REATHA OR RITHA WELLONS. I know that Milton was born in Upson Co. Ga. and my father was born in Roberta, Ga. So I'm certain that my people are from this area. From what I have discovered it apears that Reatha Wellons was a black woman, born abt 1860. My great grand father was named Benjamin Freeman Walker. He was a white man, born in 1840. I wonder if Reatha is any relation to you. Any info you may have would be aprecieted.
