I thought I had found Wyatt and Elizabeth in Henry County in 1850, but it was the
wrong family. If you have any suggestions on this family, I will be glad to follow

As a follow-up on Spencer Stamper, there are a couple of Web pages dedicated
to this family. and

Joel C. Stamper married Martha Emily Bevil, daughter of Edward Bevil and Jane C. Wise. Martha Emily was a sister to my
great grandfather James Burton Bevil. Joel and Martha left Georgia to go to Mississippi along with several other members
of this family.

Thanks again, Bill for the wonderful work you are doing transcribing the
wills of Pike County!

There are several ways you can obtain copies of these wills.
· You can write the Pike County Courthouse and request a copy of the will. This method is generally successful if you know
the book and page number or at least the approximate date of death. Enclose a small check to cover copy costs and postage.
· You can submit a request to the state archives and they will conduct a search and send you the requested document for $25 out-of-state and $15 in-state. There are very prompt and do a wonderful job. The archives also have microfilm for sell, but
you do have to get permission from the county itself to purchase the county records.
· You can rent the microfiche thought your local LDS family history center at $3.20 a roll and do your own search. This is
a very economical option.
· You can try to locate a local volunteer or arrange a research swap with someone in the area. These arrangements can be
very beneficial and it's very economical.
· You can hire a local researcher, either in Pike Co or at the Georgia Department of Archives and History. Possibilities
are HERE [Check out the Holiday Special!] or HERE. If you want several documents, this option can be more economical
than ordering from the archives.
The above index was compiled from contributions from readers, from Jeannette Holland Austin's "Index to Georgia Wills,"
from Joyce Hill Gossett's "Abstracts of Pike County Will Books A and B and Part of C," and from my own personal and client records. I am finding discrepancies in the various sources, so I am in the process of compiling my own all surname index
directly from the microfilm. It will eventually replace the above index. Please let me know if you find errors or omissions.
