Ancestor Bio – Ella E (Mitchell)Adair

52 Ancestors – Week 190

By Don Taylor

Photo of Don Taylor with cat Nasi.This week I look at Ella E. Mitchell. As is so often the case with women ancestors, her life events are defined by her husband and her children. We know she had at least seven children, five of whom lived to adulthood. She was a sharecropper’s wife and lived a simple life. She was born in Georgia, lived her entire life in Georgia, probably entirely in Paulding County. She died fairly young at the age of 49.

Ella E (Mitchell) Adair (1887-1936)

I believe that Ella E. Mitchell was born in 1887.  I don’t normally consider an individual’s grave marker as certain, however, in this case, the 1910 Census, which is the census closest to her birth indicated that she was 22 suggesting a birth between 16 April 1887 and 15 April 1888.  The 1920 Census was way wrong saying she was 38 years old (born about 1881 or 1882). The 1930 Census indicated she had only aged three years since 1920, she was 41 (born about 1888 or 1889).

I have not been successful determining who her parents or siblings were. I have searched newspapers (Newspapers, Newspaper Archives, Genealogy Bank, and Chronicling America) to no avail. I believe I will next need to try a surname focus study for Mitchell in Paulding County, Georgia and see if I can determine a potential family.

Marriage

The first record showing Ella is her marriage license and certificate where she married Allen William Adair on 18 April 1904 in a ceremony performed by B. H. Owen, J.P. in Paulding County Georgia.[i]

Adult

Tragedy struck the young couple quickly. The 1910 Census indicates that Ella had two children, one of whom was living.  We know that Floyd was born on 21 Apr 1909. So, and unknown infant must have been born and died, probably between Allen and Ella’s marriage in 1904 and the census date (15 April 1910).[ii]

1910 Census – The family consisted of Allen who was a farmer renting his farm near Humphrey, Paulding County Georgia. Ella and one-year-old Floyd were with him. Neither Allen nor Ella could read and write.  Living with them was a 20-year-old boarder from Alabama named Hollis Ware. They were living in Humphrey, Paulding County Georgia.[iii]

Search Military Records - Fold31918 – Ella was identified as Allen’s wife when he registered for the draft. They were living on R.F.D. 1, Dallas, Paulding County.[iv]

1920 Census – The family had grown by 1920.[v] 

  • Floyd was still at home and attending school.  He is identified as being able to read and write, the first in the family.
  • Elmer was born in 1912 and was also attending school.
  • Lola was born 14 Oct 1914 in Dallas, Paulding County, Georgia.
  • Paul was born 25 Aug 1918 also in Paulding County.

1923 – Tragedy struck again with the death of another infant child. Ella had twins, was named Mary Lee that lived, the other twin died. It is not clear how long the second twin lived.

1930 Census – The census record shows that Allen and Ella have three of their children still living with them. They are living on a farm on Villa Ricca Road, Dallas, GA. Sadly, 17-year-old Elmer is working as a farm laborer and is not attending school. He is also identified as unable to read and write. His brother, 11-year-old Paul, is attending school and can read and write. Six-year-old Mary is not attending school.[vi]

Ancestor Biography – Allen William Adair (1881-1963)

Adair Project 2017 – Ancestor #8

By Don Taylor

Allen William Adair was a sharecropper in Paulding County Georgia. The oldest son of a sharecropper he lived a simple life, farming other people’s land, raising children, and being ever close to the church and finally being buried in the church cemetery.

Allen William Adair (1881-1963)

Birth

Allen William Adair was born 22 July 1881[1] in Paulding County, Georgia, the first of eight children of Robert Hutcheson and Mary Jane (Parsons) Adair. Again, birth records are confusing and conflicting so a table will help explain why I settled on 22 July 1881 as his birth date.

Source Statement Comment
1900 Census July 1881 Accurate
1910 Census Age 28 (1881-82) Accurate
1918 WWI Draft Registration Age 40 22 July 1878 3 years added reduced his likelihood of being drafted.[2]
1930 Census Age 50 (1879-80) 1 year closer to actual.
1961 SS Claim Index 22 July 1881 Accurate
1963 Marker 1879 Same as 1930

The record that I have that is closest to his birth is the 1900 census. His Social Security Claim is consistent with that date.  I believe that his marker and other records are incorrect.

His name changed over the years. Early census records indicate his name was William Allen Adair. Later, he used Allen William Adair. In later he may have used Alan William Adair as Alan is the name used on his grave marker. He may have possibly used Bill Adair, also.” I have settled on Allen William Adair as my preferred name to use for him.

Childhood

The 1880s were extremely difficult times in Paulding County.

In June of 1883, his brother Joseph C. was born and the local news reported a jump in deaths due to consumption (TB) and typhoid fever in Paulding County.[4]

Family Tree DNA - Family Finder & Population FinderIn 1883-4 there was an outbreak of measles. In 1884, there was one of the most destructive storms to hit Paulding County as well as flooding, which took out mills and bridges in the county.

In 1885, his sister Minnie was born.

In 1887, Measles were again reported in Dallas and meningitis was raging in some parts of Paulding County.[5]  I believe another sibling was born during 1887 who died the same year.[6] With so many tragedies occurring the family moved from Paulding County, Georgia to Alabama.

In Alabama, four more children were born, Foster in May 1889, Maggie in Apr 1892, Celie in May 1894, and Pearl in April 1897.

By the 1900 Census[7], the family had moved back to Georgia and settled in the Weddington District 941, Humphrey, Paulding County, Georgia.  His is listed as William A. Adair in the 1900 Census. He was living with his parents and six siblings. He is identified as being able to read but not write; He is working as a farm laborer.

Marriage

On 18 April 1904, Allen married Elle E. Mitchell in a ceremony performed by B. H. Owen, a Justice of the Peace in Paulding County.[8]

Adulthood

The 1910 Census finds the young family consisting of Allen, Ella, and son Floyd Adair living in Humphrey, Paulding County. Allen is a share-cropper. Ella had had a second child that had died by then.[9]

In 1918, Allen registered for the draft; he was married and had three living children (one had died)[10].

Search as I might, I have not found Allen in the 1920 Census.

The 1930 Census finds the couple living along Villa Ricca Road in Dallas, Paulding County, Georgia. Allen is still a farmer, renting his farm, and cannot read nor write.  Their seventeen-year-old son, Elmer, is living with them as is their son, Paul E, and their daughter, Mary L.[11]

Allen’s wife, Ella E. (Mitchell) Adair died in 1936.

I have not found Allen in the 1940 Census.

Allen’s son Floyd M Adair died in 1943.

In 1961 Alan filed for a Life Claim with the Social Security Administration.[12]

Death

Allen William Adair died in Fulton County, Georgia on 26 August 1963.[13] He was 82 years old.  He was buried as “Alan W. Adair” in Bethany Christian Church Cemetery, in Paulding County, Georgia.[14]

His son, Paul E. Adair succeeded him.  Two of his other children may have succeeded him as well. Mary Lee, and Lola Adair may have been alive at the time of his death.  I have not been able to find their status yet.

Community Context Research Yields Clues

 Adair Project

By Don Taylor

Determining Elmer D. Adair’s parents has been frustrating me for some time. He is the paternal grandfather in my Adair Project and something of a nefarious character. He wasn’t spoken about in the Adair family.  We did not know if he had any siblings, nor did we have his parent’s names.

Blank Wall with Crack
Blank Wall with Crack in it.

We know he had several run-ins with the law, including one when he was just 18-years-old that resulted in his going to prison for a year.  That event was in 1931, in Paulding County, Georgia. I thought it should be easy to find a 17-year-old Elmer in the 1930 Census; however, I had no success. So, I decided to do a Community Context (Cluster) Search for Adairs in Paulding County, Georgia in 1930. I used both Family Search and Ancestry.Com in my searching. In both cases, I searched the 1930 Census for “Adair” in “Paulding County, Georgia.” On Ancestry.Com, I added criteria that the relationship to head of household should be “Head.” On Family Search, I just looked for “Head” in the household role.  The results on both were 13 families. Two of the families were black, so they were dropped from my focus leaving 11.

Note: All individuals listed above were born in Georgia.

As I went through the families, I noticed an obvious mistake in the Census. In the household of Allen Adair, there was a son named “Elma D.”  Could this be Elmer D.?  The age is right; the location is right. I suspect that Elma is Elmer. A quick search of the 1920 Census didn’t yield any results for Allen, Ella Elmer/Elma or Paul Adair.

I’m not sufficiently confident to ascribe Elmer’s parents as Allen and Ella Adair yet; however, I suspect that an in-depth look at the Adairs of Paulding County, GA in the 1920 Census and a close look at the neighbors of the 1930 Allen Adair family may result in success. Also, following the other children of Allen & Ella may well lead to confirmation. In any event, what was once a blank wall has cracks in it — clues about how to get through it.

Lessons
A community context search can illuminate facts that you may have missed previously.
Names such as “Elmer” can be misinterpreted as “Elma.”

Future Actions
Follow the children of Allen and Ella Adair and look for potential references to Elmer.
Look at the 1930 neighbors of Allen and Ella Adair and see if there are any to find in the 1920 Census.
Look at the Adair’s of Paulding County, GA, in the 1920 Census and document any new relationships found.

Adair Ancestors: Luel Glazier (1912 -1997) #7

By – Don Taylor 

On my Adair project, it was time to step back and look at the life of Luel Glazier. Her life was filled with death all around her, first her only sibling, then her mother, and then her father.  Finally, she was widowed at only 43 years old.

Biography: Luel Glazier (1912 -1997)

Luel Glazier was born on December 22, 1912, in Luthersville, Georgia to Josephine Ophelia Lambert, age 25, and John Henry Glazier, age 39.

In 1914, her only sibling, Joan Glazier was born.

In 1917, when Luel was five years old, Luel’s sister, Joan, died.

In 1920, Luel Glazier lived in Hapeville, Georgia, with her father, a postal clerk, and her mother. Luel attended school.

Tragedy struck again in 1929 when Luel’s mother, Ophelia died.

309 Grant Park Place, Atlanta, GA Today
Photo courtest Google Maps.
Note: 309 South ave & 309 Grant Park Place
appear to be the same location.

By 1930, she and her widower father moved to 309 South Ave., Atlanta, Georgia. John Henry still worked as a postal clerk, Luel attended school.

The 1932 and 1933 Atlanta City Directories indicates Luel and her father lived at 309 South Ave., and 309 Grant Park Place, respectively. She was a student.

Tragedy struck again in 1934 when Luel’s father, John Henry Glazier died. The 22-year-old Luel was orphaned. She stayed at 309 Grant Park Place, for a short while; but we know she moved to Turin, Georgia, in 1935, but it isn’t clear where she was living, but presumed to have been with relatives.

In 1940, Luel was living with two uncles, Howard & Hibe Glazier on Glazier Road, near Turin, Georgia. Her uncles were farm and peach orchard supervisors and owned a farm.

Luel Glazier married Svend Christian Hansen on February 27, 1942, when she was 29 years old. Svend was 13 years her senior.

Svend and Luel had four children. At this time in her life, she had lived entirely in Georgia. In 1955, Svend and Luel moved to Arizona in support of treatment for Luel’s emphysema.  They loved at 505 W. Ajo Way in Tucson, AZ.

Although a house in 1955, 505 W. Ajo Way
is an insurance sales office today.

Six months later, Svend was in an auto accident. Family history says he didn’t get treatment. Shortly afterward Svend had a pulmonary embolism. On 12 November 1955, Svend died at the VA Hospital in Tucson, AZ.

Luel’s moved to South Carolina to be near her daughter, Dianne, whose husband was stationed there.

Luel Glazier Hansen died on December 5, 1997, in Aiken, South Carolina, when she was 84 years old.

Bio – Lura Scroggins (1906-1949)

Adair Project

AH-05 – Lura Scoggins

6 October 1906 – August 1949

Lura Scoggins was born on 6 October 1906 in Georgia[i],[ii]; she died in August 1949 in Georgia, at age 42.[iii],[iv] She was buried in Pleasant Hill Baptist Church Cemetery, Austell, Cobb County, Georgia[v],[vi].

She is the third child and third daughter of George Scoggins (1875-1955), aged 31, and Minnie Estelle Jackson (1880-1978), aged 26. Her two older siblings were Bertha (b. 1901) and Nora (b. 1903).

“Historic” Milton County, Georgia, c. 1910
Map courtesy Georgia Info 

In the 1910 Census, “Lurie” is living with her father, mother, and three sisters. A third sister, Fannie Lou, was born in January of 1910. Her father rented and farmed in Crossville, Milton County, GA. (Milton County was abolished and merged into Fulton and Cobb counties in 1932.)[vii] Also, living with the family was George’s brother, Choice.

Also of interest, is that the 1910 Census (15 April) reported that Lurie was four-years-old, implying she was born in 1905. This is inconsistent with all other information regarding Lura’s birth. I believe this implied birth year to be in error even though I usually consider the first census a person is recorded in as correct regarding birth year.

Over the next decade three more siblings were born. First Cleo in 1912, then Lee Bell in 1914, and finally a brother, James S was born in 1917.

The 1920 Census finds Lura’s father renting and farming a farm on Crass Road in Gritter Township, Cobb County, Georgia. The family consisted of George and Minnie and five of the children; eighteen-year-old Bertha is no longer at home. It is interesting to note that although the three oldest children can read and write, none of the four school-age children are attending school. ,[viii]

The 1920s must have been good to the Scoggins family; George earned enough to be able to buy a farm on Brownsville Road in Powder Springs, GA, where they were enumerated in the 1930 Census.,[ix] Another sister, Lillian, was born in 1923. 1930 finds Lura and two of her sisters were working the farm while the three youngest siblings were attending school.

The 1930s turned into a trough time for Lura. Actually, she had one of the roughest lives of anyone I’ve ever researched. She married[x] Elmer Adair (~ 1910-?) in Cobb County, Georgia, on 15 April 1931.[xi] That August, Elmer went to prison for a year. After his release, Lura began having children – four of them before Elmer abandoned her. In 1939 Elmer went to prison for another year, this time for abandonment. Elmer escaped the minimum security facility and was then arrested for another crime while an escapee. He was returned to prison.

During the 1940 Census, the 31-year old (she’s getting younger) Lura is living with her parents and is identified as a widow. Her husband is actually alive but in prison. With her are four of her children. Also living with George and Minnie is Lynell Bell, a grandson who is apparently daughter Lillian’s child. Lura is listed as working as farm labor.[xii]

Another three children, all boys, are born for a total of seven children, four boys and three girls to Elmer and Lura,

In 1945, Elmer and Lura are back together and living at 553 Washington, SW, in Atlanta. Elmer is a driver for the Benton Transportation Company. [xiii] Benton Trans. Co was an over the road trucking company.

Lura died in 1949. Funeral services were held at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church on 7 August 1949. Internment was to be at the church cemetery.

Children of Elmer and Lura were:

Ruth Adair (1934-????).[xiv]
Geraldine Adair,, (1935-????)
Living Adair. [xv]
Wilma Adair (1939-????)
