From the Files of Marguerite Cook Clark: Georgia Ann Frances Bryan Pitman Wimberly

Marguerite Cook Clark
1913 - 1989
I know a lot about Georgia Ann Frances Bryan Pitman Wimberly of Bienville Parish, Louisiana. I have written about her in two of my posts, but had never seen her obituary until I was given the chance to look through the files of Marguerite Cook Clark. 

From old letters, I believed that Georgia Ann Frances had her own child, but from her obituary, it appears the child was her sister's child. The child may be Sarah Catharine Watts as she was living with Georgia Ann Frances in 1870. 

The author of the obituary was Josie S. Cook, niece of Georgia Ann Frances. Ironically, Josie was the daughter of Georgia Ann Frances' brother and wife, Joseph B. and Sarah Wimberly Bryan, but she was adopted and raised by James  (half-brother to Joseph) and Alice Wimberly Bryan (sister to Sarah).
