    How do I obtain a copy of the Will for Elijah William PHILLIPS b: 24 Feb 1833 Troup County and d: 1867 Georgia.
    Will was probated and is in Will Book B pages 270 -271, but I can’t find an online view of it.

  2. I have an ancestor who lived in Antioch, Troup Co., and was on the 1850 census. His name was James Porter and his wife was Tabitha. Children were: David A., James, John, Elisha and Mary A.F. Porter. This James Porter died after 1850 census and before 1859 when his widow married David McJunkin. In 1840 there was a James S. Porter who lived in Troup Co., GA and I am trying to get documentation to prove that these two men were two separate people. Can anyone help me?
