Subj: BAKER, ONIE Date:
97-06-14 From: KWilli1046@aol.com
I'm looking for some help on solving
a puzzle. My grandfather left my father when he was very
young. Per my great uncle, his brother changed his name
from Howard Williams to Roy Baker. It is believed by the
family that he married Onie Baker and had one child Roy Baker
Jr. It is also believed that Roy lived in Augusta, Ga.
from 1940 to 1945. He then moved to Altanta. From
there, no one knows.
The other day I did a search on Onie
Baker against the Social Security Death index and it came up
with one who died in DeKalb County, GA. Her date of death
is listed as April 9, 1994. She was born Dec 28, 1909.
I was wondering if someone can take a look in the local newspapers
for an obituary. I'm hoping the obit references a Son,
Roy Baker Jr., and where he currently
Also, I was hoping that there is an old
County or town phone directory during the 50's and 60's to see
if a Roy and Onie Baker lived there. I know this
is asking a lot but I'd like to determine if the stories are

My great-grandmother (Malinda C. Rawlings, daughter of
Nathan Newton Rawlings of Tennessee) was born to Malinda P. Collier
Rawlings, daughter of Merrill and Elizabeth Collier, of the Panthersville
district of Dekalb Co. Apparently Malinda Collier died either
at the birth of my great-grandmother or shortly thereafter, around
1856. I am trying to figure out where Malinda P. Collier
Rawlings was buried. Through the Atlanta historical society
I was able to ascertain that Merrill and Elizabeth Collier were
buried in the late 1850's at the Wesley Chapel Churchyard
on Wesley Chapel Rd. in Dekalb Co., but I can't figure out where
Malinda P. Collier Rawlings is buried, when she died, her exact
birth date, or what happened to Nathan Newton Rawlings since
he doesn't show up in any census that I can find for 1860 or
1870 or 1880 in Georgia or Tennessee. Malinda C. Rawlings
was raised by her uncle Philip T. Rawlings, and he mentions
her in his will in the 1870's.
I was hoping that you might give me a
clue as to where to start looking, or publications on Dekalb
Co. information which could help. The Rhea Co. Tenn. Historical
Society has lots of info to purchase to help in the search, but
I am not certain where to start with Dekalb Co.
I am searching a James COOK line which begins in TN, migrates

I am requesting information
which I have not had any success obtaining up to this point.
I am the great nephew of William LaGrange Goodwin, Sr.
who was a descendant of Robert Goodwin. Robert was married
to a woman named Peggy. Robert and Peggy were descendants
of slaves in DeKalb, County. As far as I know, he was born
in Atlanta, Georgia on September 24,1882. He married Sally
Freeman who came from a family who were native Atlantans.
We are of African ancestry which may explain my difficulty in
finding this information up to this point.
Another piece of information
that may be helpful to you is that William Goodwin, Sr. attended
a college in the 1920's in what may be now considered a part
of Atlanta University (e.g. Morris Brown or Clark).
Any help or information
you can provide in assisting me in my search would be appreciated.

I'm not sure if this is correct, however, I did find in "The

Reeves who married Elizabeth Tanner, 20 July 1815 in Jackson
Co., GA. I believe this is my Burgess P. Reeves and wife Elizabeth.
Their daughter, Anne Reeves, was my great-grandmother.
She married George Washington Golightly, 03/18/1851 in Dekalb
Co., GA. Burgess P. Reeves, wife Elizabeth, and 12 children
were listed on the 1850 census of Dekalb Co., GA. Elizabeth was
age 50 and Burgess P. was age 56.These 12 children were:

Marion 12, Winford 11, James K.K. 6, Anne or Anna 26, Margaret

family that would help me locate Elizabeth's parents? I would
appreciate any information to point me in the right direction.
