I am searching for descendants of WILLIS C. SHIPP who
was a lawyer in Dudleyville in 1850-1862. He was born
in Pitt County, NC in 1812. He married CELETA E. GEORGE
on Nov. 17, 1834 in Jasper County, Georgia. By the 1840
census was in Walton County, Georgia and by 1850 was
in Tallapoosa County, Alabama. His children were;
Sarah married GEORGE J. THOMPSON; Caroline died July 18,1851
buried in Old Dudleyville Cemetery, Burton W. married
AMERICUS VICKERS; Mary Ann Melissa married AMOS IVEY;
Lettie married JOHN THOMAS BOONE; Martha Jane married
ELBERT Lovelace SHROPSHIRE; Selina married W. T. RIGGINS. Willis C. first wife died in 1858 and he married
ROZILLA A. CLANAHAN, widow of WILLIAM CLANAHAN of Dadeville.
They had two children Virginia and Walter. WILLIS C.
SHIPP died in 1862. Any help would be appreciated.
I have a George Thompson from Tallapoosa County, b: 1834 d: 1862(?) in service during the Civil War. As far as we know, he wasn't married, nor had children. However, stranger things have happened. So, if these dates for George match with your George's dates, we just might have a connection!
He was a member of the Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Tallapoosa/Chambers County, AL.
Father: James Thompson
