      Charlotta is 52 and J.S. Pool (or Bool) is 68. Perhaps Charlotta / Charlotte is a sister to Milly. This is not a very common name but it crops up in this family quite a lot.

      J.S. Pool is enumerated next door to E.W. Pool, age 33 (probably a son).

  • Notes 
    • According to her daughter's 1910 census enumeration, she was born in Alabama. However the other census records all record her as from Georgia.

      Perhaps a way to track her down is to find families in 1840 in Cobb or Paulding County, Georgia that she could fit into that are near to Smith families where Thomas would fit.

      Backtracking with Millie Allen, we know the following:
      Burial - 1893, Paulding County, Georgia
      Death - 1893, Paulding County, Georgia
      Residence - 1860-1893, Paulding County, Georgia
      Marriage 3 - 1865, Paulding County, Georgia
      Residence - 1850, Cherokee Co, Alabama
      Marriage 2 - before 1848 birth of her child, probably AL
      Birth of Rhoda - 1844 - AL
      Marriage 1 - before 1843 birth of her child, GA or AL
      Birth - about 1821, probably GA

      So, as a hypothesis, Millie was born in GA around 1821. She married Thomas Smith around 1843 in Georgia. I suspect that they moved to Alabama, probably Cherokee County area. He died shortly afterward, probably without a will since he was likely very young and without property. Though having a daughter, there may have been a guardian appointed. But again, without property, perhaps not. Millie likely remarried fairly quickly, being young and with a child, to James Armer. He was a little older and had lost his wife and had young children to raise who needed a mother. He died after only a few years as well. Somehow, she ended up moving back to Paulding County, Georgia. What was the attraction back to Paulding and how did she end up there? Did she come alone?

      Possibly, Millie and her family moved to Alabama and she married Thomas there, since Rhoda always reports that her father was from Alabama.
