Born and raised in Ringgold, Bienville Parish, Louisiana. Searching for information on Corleys, Pates, McGraws, Knightons, and Marlers in NW Louisiana. Corleys migrated from Virginia to North Carolina to South Carolina to Meriwether County, Georgia before moving to Louisiana. Pates migrated from Virginia to Tennessee to Louisiana. Solomon McGraw was born in South Carolina and came to Louisiana from Georgia. We have nothing linking him from South Carolina to Georgia. Don't have much on the Marlers.
