I am researching a Mary Susan Wilks/Wilkes born 1831 in GA. and died 1911 in GA. I believe her father was Osburn/Osborne Wilks/ Wilkes but can't find anything to prove it.
I don't think Carroll Co. GA. had death certificates at that time. I have read 2 books about the Wilks/Wilkes family and can not find any mention of her.
I haven't found a will or probate records for Osborn Wilkes.
Could there be a family bible somewhere?
Appreciate any suggestions.
