My 2nd great-grandfather was a railroad engineer. Born in Atlanta he died of yellow fever contacted on a run to New Orleans. James Thomas Giddens also had two daughters named Lura and Dora. He is censused in 1850 with his wife and one son in Atlanta. The transcriber put Gillings. Nearby is a John and Sarah old enough to be his parents.
