William Stoker’s family moves to Troup County, Georgia

Troup County, Georgia, 1850 United States Census, detail
09/11/1850
While William Stoker was born in Chambers County, Alabama, his family moved at some point before 1850 to western Georgia. Thomas C. Evans, the assistant Marshal for Troup County, noted on September 11, 1850 that “Elisha W.” Stoker lived with his mother Rebecca, two brothers, three step-brothers and sisters. Arnold Stoker, William’s father, had died in 1841 and his step-father, Thomas McKissack, had apparently moved out at some point earlier. (By Don Sailer)
