Hi
The only thing I have found on him is on the 1880 Screven Co census, I am looking for info on their daughter Patience who married Enos Phillips. They had three children, Mary Jane, Frances and Jordon. Which is listed on the 1860 Screven census. Patience and Enos had to have died during the war, because we find Frances and Jordon are found in the home of William Peevy, next door to Mary and John Peevy,in 1880 Jordon, nephew, and america Harris, neice is living with John and Mary. Della Harris is found in the HH of Guilford in 1880.
Mary Jane was born in 1853 and would have been only 10 in 1863, within the few years her parents died, she would have been to young to have been married, but she is not found in the house with her siblings unless she is in another families house that I have not ran across. If this is the same Mary, she would have gotten married to augustus Hansel Beecher in 1873. Hansel my great great grandfather was born and raised in Appling county GA, a few counties away from Screven.So right now I am looking into the census records of the surrounding counties, to see if she can be found. Anything you have on this family would be greatly appreciated.

Debbie, I am sorry I took so long in answering your mail. Lately there has been a fair amount of interest in Guilford. It has take a long time for me to compile his info. For instance, by chance I was looking for something on my Nease family in Effingham county and found a note on Guilford as a volunteer in the confederate army. So, you never know what you will find or where. If there is anything else I can offer please ask. Greg

Hi Greg,
Hope I can figure this out, I put to many postings out there so I hope I have this right. I am looking for Mary Jane Phillips. I believe her parents were Enos and Patience Peavy Phillips. On a census, there was Enos, Patience, two other siblings with Mary J., she was born in 1853, by the 1860 census, Mary J. is gone and the two siblings are in the house of another Peevy(sorry I don't have my notes with me, but I can get that to you later) and the by the 1870 census, the kids are in the next door Peevy home. So I believe both Enos and Patience must have died during the war and the kids were sent out to family. If this is my Mary Jane Phillips, she married my 2nd great grandfather Augustus Hasel Beecher, from Appling Co., GA. So if I could tie maybe a Peavy to Appling, or find more info on Patience, then maybe I can find a link. I also have been told that my great grandmother was Native American, and in a picture she looks it. If she is this would mean it had to have come through the Phillips or Peavy side. Hope this gives you enough to see if you have anything on any of these people.

Thanks so much, Debbie

Hi Greg,
This is looking more and more like this is my Mary Jane. Her daughter was named Maggie Malzora, but may have been Maggie Mezell . I also have Columbia S, Mizell b 1859 married a Mceachen and Susan Mizell b. 1818 married to a Bullard and William Mizell father of Susan. Check and see if you have these names, this would ar least connect the two families and close the gap a little. I have been searching for Mary's family a long time so any info you can pass my way would be so appreciated. If you could send it to my email address dalbert@itol.com
Thanks again so much, Deb

Since we live in Guyton, and Halcyondale es only a few miles north on GA 17, we will try and drive up to Doubleheads Baptist Church and see what we can find. We have always heard that Guilford along with many other of our ancestors are interred there but many did not have permanent grave markers.

Hi,
If you go up there you might want to check to see if there are any early church records. I have not been able to find any online. But I have had 2 other people that suggested that we look there for records, so it is a good place to look for him. Please let me know if you find anything, I am still plugging away at this family.
Thanks and happy hunting, Deb
