Hi June... I finally found some info about Talitha.
Her last name is Smith!!! So, her full name is Talitha Taquemi Smith; born 11/15/1856;died 11/1936 in Donovan, Ga. That's all I have for now. Just wanted to let you know.

June,

Talthia Tequemi McNeil Smith was also my great-great grandmother! My great grandmother was Lily Belle Hines (Mercer), spouse of Junie B. Hines. Their daughter Jessie was my grandmother who married my grandfather Lewis Layson Beecham. I would love to hear more about your family connection. My family tree on ancestry.com is under Elliott. Thanks, Judy Elliott Shipman originally from florida!

Hi Judy, I am Joyce (Hines) Smith. My Daddy is your grandmother's (Jessie) brother. I'm assuming you are Pat's daughter.
Anyway, this is what I have finally found out regarding Talitha. Sarah Jane Shepard married Thomas Smith and they had Talitha. Thomas died and Sarah married John McNeal. On the census record I found it lists John, Sarah, Talitha, and
James McNeal. It notes James( age3) as son, but does not list Talitha (age 14) as daughter. It looks like Talitha used her stepdad's last name until she marries Levi Thomas Mercer, then used her legal last name (Smith). Hope this helps. I am on Ancestry under Hines/Colvin.
