Georgia Connections

This is my highest brick wall! John Thomas' father is supposed to be John W. Yawn and his mother's name was Janie. I have no idea if this is right because I can find no trace of John Thomas before 1912 in Pulaski Co., GA. I found a possible first marriage in Decatur County and one in Irwin County but those descendents wouldn't let me have him. So I am stuck. But I keep chipping away and someday I will have to break this wall down.

Notes for OSSON BRANCH HOSFORD:
From the Dodge County, GA newspaper clippings Thur, Sept. 27, 1917

Mr. O.B. Hosford, a nephew of Mr. C.C. Hosford of Eastman, who was employed at Mr. Martin Miller's ginnery at Gresston, was caught in one of the shafting Wednesday morning about 10 o'clock and was so badly wounded that death resulted a short time later. It is said that every thread of clothing was stripped from the young man's body except the wristbands of his shirt, and that he was badly bruised, and mangled. It is not known how the accident occurred, as no one was with him at the time.
The deceased was a son of Mr. W.H.Hosford, of near Gresston, and was about 26 years old. He is survived by a wife and two children.
