Hiram Whatley was born 27 February 1841 in Alabama. The first census record listing Hiram was in the southern district of Henry County, Alabama in 1850. He was living in the household of 43 year old William Watley born in Georgia and 40 year old Clerenetto Watley born in Georgia. Other members of the household were Wm. Watley, Joseph S. Watley, Hiram Watley, Manerva Watley, Augustus Watley and Benjamin Watley. A school teacher named Joseph Wofford was also living in the household.
We find 19 year old Hiram Watley living with another family in the 1860 census. He worked as a clerk for a merchant named Thomas J. Gilford in Hilliardsville, Henry County, Alabama and was enumerated with the merchant's household.
Hiram was listed as a 2nd Corporal with Guilford's Calvary in Henry County Reserves.
Hiram married Georgia Anna F. Stone 05 May 1862 in Henry County, Alabama (FamilySearch™ International Genealogical Index). Georgia was born 10 January 1844 in Alabama. She was the daughter of Thomas Wesley and Ellen Stone.
Hiram and Georgia, along with five children, were enumerated in the 1870 Precinct 12, Henry County, Alabama census. They lived with 64 year old William Whatly born in Georgia. Hiram left Henry County, Alabama shortly after that census and moved to Texas in 1871 (Hiram's obituary). They settled in the Lawrenceville community which eventually became known as Judson. Hiram, Georgia and their children lived in Precinct 2, Gregg County, Texas when the 1880 census was taken.
According to the history of Judson Missionary Baptist Church, the church was organized in 1883 by thirteen local Baptists; Georgia Whatley was a founding member who "suggested the name Judson Missionary Baptist Church for a church she had attended in Lawrenceville, Alabama which was named in honor of Adoniram Judson (1788-1850)." Church members met to worship in the Lawrenceville School. Georgia and Hiram Whatley donated a plot of land and the church structure was erected in 1894. In the late 1890s H. A. Whatley gave one acre for the Judson Cemetery. It is located north of Longview on Judson Road and sits to the left of the church.
Children of HIRAM WHATLEY and GEORGIA STONE are:

To bloom with God on high"
