We are looking for a church named Bethlehem Baptist Church in Coweta Co. We think we have found ancestors that were members there in 1880. Can anyone give us directions to the church, and tell us if they have a cemetery? Was there a town or community named Bethlehem or was this just the name of the church? We are also looking for a place called Bohannon's Crossing. Is this a place, a cemetery? We are looking for Henry BROOK, born abt. 1801, died abt. 1866-1867, who is supposed to be buried there or nearby. Can anyone help us locate either of these places?
Thanks, Mike and Beth Brook - mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org

Seeking any information on the family of the widow, Margaret E. (FOSTER) TRAVIS (1838-1884) who m. Moses A. SHIELDS (1837-1897) in Pike Co., GA Dec. 20, 1866. The family settled in Senoia perhaps in the 1870s, moving from Pike/Spalding Co. Moses and Margaret are buried in the Senoia City Cemetery, Coweta Co. Margaret's son Willis Sidney TRAVIS (1859-1925) moved with the family to Senoia, completed school at the Brantley Institute, and after traveling with the RR became the second agent of the Central of GA in Senoia, after his father-in-law, Thomas Newton VINING. T.N. VINING (1825-1896), the first known agent of the Senoia Central of GA depot, helped manage the post Civil War completion of the RR in this part of GA. Willis Sidney TRAVIS married Estelle (BROWN) VINING (dau. of T.N. VINING and Leacy BROWN) in Senoia in 1884. Willis Sidney TRAVIS and Estelle (VINING) TRAVIS built the white Victorian house featured as the Threadgood family home in the 1991 movie, Fried Green Tomatoes. The home is still in the family, owned by Willis Sidney TRAVIS' grandson, Willis Olin McDANIEL and his wife Sue ADAMS. Margaret FOSTER's first husband, Sidney P. TRAVIS (1837-abt.1865) died sometime during the Civil War, probably in service from Alabama, but date, location and burial are unknown. Sidney P. TRAVIS was the son of Hiram TRAVIS (1808-1875) and Anne Louise WESTMORELAND (1811-1880) of Fayette and Pike/Spalding Cos. Moses A. SHIELDS and Margaret E. Foster Travis SHIELDS had SHIELDS children Mary Christian (1867), Harriet E. (1869) who m. Charles F. CROUCH, Robert (abt. 1870) who m. Irene SMITH, Frank A. (1879) and FOSTER (aft. 1800). The SHIELDS' home on Main St. in Senoia is still occupied, though not in the family.
Any information about this family would be greatly appreciated, and I will be glad to share what I know.

I am looking for the FURLOW family in Cowetta Co., one of them married a FOSTER. Do your records show this connection?.
Barbara McDaniel Ray Sun Feb 4 12:32:58 2001
Unfortunately, I have little information on the FOSTER family at this point. My Margaret Foster Travis SHIELDS grew up and married in what is now Spalding County, just across the line from Coweta. She and her second husband, Moses SHIELDS, and her son from her first marriage, Willis Sidney TRAVIS, settled in Senoia, Coweta Co., GA permanently, and are buried in the Senoia City Cemetery. Margaret FOSTER appears to be the daughter of Robert K. FOSTER (abt. 1816) and his wife Patience Unknown. The FOSTER children listed in the 1850 census of Pike (later Spalding) Co. were Margaret, Robert, Mary A., John, Carline, Louisiana T., Indiana, Rennetus F., and Robert A. Willis Sidney's daughter, Susie Estelle TRAVIS (my paternal grandmother) married Olin Black McDANIEL, from The Rock, Upson Co., GA, becoming long-time residents of Newnan, hence my McDANIEL name.
Good luck with your search.
