RE: Benjamin F. King

I'm not sure you are wrong. It's all so confusing. Frank E. King, who signed Benjamin's death certificate, was my paternal grandfather. His son, Frank Earl King (Jr) was my father. I'm just stumped as to why B. D. King is showing up as Benjamin's father. And no mother listed. My grandfather Frank was shown in the 1930 census as living at 423 Kendrick Ave (Alms House?) His marital status was listed as widowed. The 30 census also showed his wife Louise as married and head of household in Atlanta. Then in 1935 Frank and Louise were living together in College Park.

Maybe there was another Benjamin King living in Coweta County, who happened to be born about the same time as the Benjamin listed on the 1860 census with Nathan King as head of household. Or, maybe Nathan was an uncle and not Benjamin's father and Nathan happened to be living with him and Mary. The Benjamin listed in the 60 census had a brother named Benjamin Dozier King. Maybe there was a Benjamin Dozier King, Sr. who was the father of both Benjamin's? I couldn't find him if he did exist. Kind of confusing.

I was told by someone at the Coweta County Probate Office that they do not have birth certificates going back into the 1800's. A birth certificate would tell us a lot.

Benjamin F. King

In regards to the death certificate you attached to Find A Grave for Benjamin F. King, my paternal great grandfather, I am a little confused by the listing of B. D. King as his father. I was led to believe that Nathan King was Benjamin's father. Benjamin was born in 1850 in Coweta County. He married Cornelia A. Simmons around 1875. Benjamin did have a son named Benjamin Dozier King (maybe somehow that's where the B. D. came from.) My grandfather, Frank Earl King (Sr.)who was taking care of his father, signed the death certificate.

You are more involved in ancestry than I am, so I though you might be able to shed some light on this confusion. I wish I had talked with my father (Frank E. King, Jr.) about his side of the family before he passed away in 1972.

Please feel free to review my tree on Ancestry. Com. I'm not sure it's correct anymore.

P.S. Cornelia is also buried in East View Cemetery.

RE: Kings
Hi Tom. My maiden name is King. Benjamin and Mary Ann Burson King are my ancestors. I descend through TWO of their grandsons - Joseph B. King and Martin A. King. Are you on I think we may have crossed paths some over there. My user name is Sabrina1574. My tree is set to private, but I'll be happy to give you access if you'll message me over there. I'm still uploading a lot of paper documents that I've accumulated over the years and old photos. You can let me know. My grandfather used to talk about a Tom King that he knew. He said that Tom King used to tell him they were related, but my grandfather didn't think so. He was Olin King from Tallapoosa, GA. My brothers haven't been DNA tested. Two have no interest in genealogy, but the other one might be open to it.

RE: Susan (Stout) King
I am really sorry for the condition of the marker! It has rained so much here the last month, everything is soaked. Her marker, unfortunetly, had quite a bit of mud on it when I got there. She was originaly buried in another cemetery in the area, but when they built Fort Gibson Lake, they removed everyone from several cemeteries to Pioneer. I could not find a date of death on her for you, nor did they have information on the name of the cemetery where her original resting place was. Sorry I could not be of more help!
