James Hooten & Susannah Kidd

James Hooten and his wife Susannah Kidd came to Henry County in the early
1800s and settled just east of the Ola Community. They came by ox-cart from
South Carolina.  Their children were:  Cary, William, (Unknown), Littleton,
Parmelia, Moses, James Jr., Suzanna, Emily Jane, Martha Adair, Enoch Milton
and Jincy Dixon.

In 1838, they deeded a tract of land to the Ola Presbyterian Church for the
sum of $1 for the use of a cemetery.  This cemetery is known as the
Hooten/Rock Cemetery and is on the Montgomery Farm on GA Highway 81.  The road
has been closed to the cemetery in order to cut down on vandalism.  It is
being maintained in top shape by Mr. Lawrence Montgomery.  A goodly number of
the family are buried here, including James and Susannah.  

My great grandmother was Martha Adair Hooten, who married James Madison Moore,
son of Joshua and Thurza Wyatt Moore.  Joshua had come from Delaware to Greene
Co., Jasper Co. and on into Henry County to the Snapping Shoals community.
Joshua and Thurza married in Jasper County in 1824. Their sons were James
Madison Moore and William Woodson Moore.
James and Martha moved from Henry Co., GA to Randolph Co., AL sometime between
1850 and 1854.

Enoch Milton Hooten, son of James and Susannah, became a very famous Baptist
minister and was written up in the book of PROMINENT BAPTIST MINISTERS.

Fortunately, a few of their descendants are interested in genealogy and have
found facts regarding this family.  Most will share information.
