I am looking for information on my great great grandmother. I am told that my great great grandfather went to church in order to find a wife after his previous wife passed away. That is where he and Sosalene (spelling??) met.
She was born 25 April 1855 in Fayette, Georgia. They married (John Henry Atkinson & Sosalene Caroline ____) on 10 Jan. 1875 in Henry, Georgia. She had a daughter, Mary Magdalene Maddox. Sosalene passed away 30 Sept 1882 in Henry, Georgia. Unfortunately, she passed before the Dawes Rolls so I can not look her up on there. According to the family she was full blooded Cherokee. If anyone can help with proving this information and giving me names of her parents it would be greatly appreciated.
