Notes for Mary Tate Anthony:

In 1855, Alabama State census, one male >21=Green, one male<21=Matthew Henry. Two females <21 and two >21. There would not have been two daughters under 21 at home. Caroline America was the only female under 21 but she was married to R. W. Tims and is shown in his household. Identity of the two females <21 remains unknown but probably an error in coding since Harriett and Lucy were spinsters and presumably living at home.

{The Census Taker made numerous mistakes on this entry. Green and Mary were actually 10 years older than the listing and Harriett was 39. They were all listed as unable to read or write but I know that to be false because we have copies of letters written by Green Talbot in March 1872 and it is unlikely that he would have acquired that skill after 1870.}


Often referred to as "General". Although, he was born in Wilkes County, Georgia, he lived in Morgan Co.,GA for many years but by 1830, he was living in Meriwether Co.,GA and by 1835, he was living in Chambers Co.,AL. He was the Deacon when the County Line Baptist Church was organized in 1835. Several court records exist to show some of his activities in Chambers County. He moved to Tallapoosa Co.,AL after 1845 and remained there until 1870/1871 when he moved his family to Harrell, AR. He died in December 1875.

He was a splendid person. Many of his daughters named their children in his honor and when their husbands were killed in the Civil War, they came home to live with him. He and Mary Tate raised the Sikes boys because both their parents died when the children were 6 and 4, respectively. He provided a home for his widowed daughters and their children. At the age of 80, he moved from his home of four decades to Arkansas in order to get his widowed children settled near at least three of his other children who had moved there in the 1840's.

Notes for Milton Anthony:

Milton Anthony founded the Medical College of Georgia. The publication, Memoirs of Georgia - Deceased Physicians, pages 173 - 175, contains the following:

" Eminent as a practitioner of medicine, he was also equally as skilled in gynecology and surgery. He was the first gynecologist to adopt the knee-chest position in uterine luxations. He also perfected the treatment of fractures of the thigh by weight extension -- Such a man must have necessarily been a Christian. He was thoroughly grounded in the doctrines of the Bible, and exhibited their effects in his life. His knowledge was sanctified and his benevolence expanded by his piety. There was one department of morality in which he labored with unabated zeal - that of temperance. Possessing an affectionate disposition and winning manners, he secured the regard of his patients and entered upon the difficult task of conversing with them on eternal things with great success. His labors of love were greatly blessed. His body was interred on the college grounds ..."
