Most Wanted: Barbara Baxter Kendrick

My g-g-grandmother’s name was Barbara Baxter.  I have very little information about her.

She was married to Francis Marion Kendrick on 16 Apr 1871. I can place the two of them, along with various children, in the 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 censuses, always living in the Alaculsey District of Murray County, Georgia.  She was born 20 Dec 1854 and died 05 Mar 1939.

That’s it.  That’s all I have.  No parents, no siblings.

In searching through Murray County Heritage, I’ve just discovered that there is a Baxter Family Cemetery in the Alaculsey Valley.  I must find out where it is and visit.

I had remembered from a prior perusal of the same book that there was an iron works company called Baxter & Buchanan that operated in Alaculsey Valley in the 1860’s.  It makes sense that this company would be associated with Barbara’s family in some way.

Does anyone know anything about Barbara?  Please leave a comment; any information at all would be most appreciated.

Update:  I found Barbara’s parents.  Read about it here.

    I have some information for you on the Baxters. My GG Grandfather was James David Baxter, born 2/5/1850 and he was your GG Grandmothers brother. :) If you need anything I have you can surely have it.

    Thanks, Rhonda
