Research notes

A Sarah M. Frady, age 16, born in Georgia is enumerated in the 1900 census in Cedar Grove, Walker, Georgia in the household of Andy H. Frady, her father, age 63, born in Tennessee. This is probably the Sarah Frady that married Samuel Coker. The families were both in Cedar Grove in 1900. In 1910 Andy Frady is living with one of his children in Chattooga, Georgia. He is a widower.

Unable to locate Samuel Coker and Sarah Frady in the 1910 census index on Ancestry or Heritage; the search was concentrated in Georgia.

I have the marriage record for Mrs. Sarah Coker to A. J. Dockrey on the 16 Dec 1917 in Chattooga County, Georgia.

Sarah Dockery is enumerated in the household of her husband Andrew J. Dockery, age 61 in the 1920 U.S. census in Wilson, Walker County, Georgia. She is 35 years of age. All of the children enumerated in the census have the last name Dockery, but it is possible that some of these children were born to Samuel Coker and Sarah Frady Coker Dockery.
