I fear this response may be too late but thought I would send it to you. I am descended from John Majors, brother to Daniel (Webster) Majors. John's daughter, Elisabeth, married William Benjamin Reynolds and they were my 3rd g-grandparents.
Below is what I have so far, more so on John but some on Daniel. A search of records in Marion Co would likely turn up more on Daniel. Hope this is some assistance.
On census records John and Daniel Majors both indicated they were born in South Carolina. Where has yet to be determined though one source gives Abbeville District as their origin before coming to Georgia.
I do not at this time know the names of my 5th g-grandparents. The names Thomas, Jasper, Rachel, and Winnefred are common so a search of these names in South Carolina may yet yield fruit. They were married prior to 1803 where is unknown also but they appear to have come to Georgia before 1820 possibly to Webster County. They had the following children born to their marriage :
1. Sarah Majors, born October 12, 1803.
2. Daniel Majors, born January 1, 1806 and died June 27, 1891. He married Elizabeth Johnson in 1824. He is buried at Shiloh Church in Marion Co., GA.
3. Thomas Majors, born December 24, 1807.
4. Mary Majors, born April 28, 1809.
5. John Majors, born April 3, 1811. He married Nancy ________ and they were my 4th great-grandparents.
6. Rachel Majors, born March 7, 1813.
7. Martha Majors, born November 12, 1814.
8. David Majors, born June 10, 1818.
John Majors was my 4th great-grandfather and was born in South Carolina. His wifeâ€™s first name was Nancy and I have been unable to locate a marriage record for them but they are believed to have married about 1831. Together John and Nancy had eleven children as follows:
1. Rachael Majors was born about 1834.
2. Elisabeth Majors was born about 1836. She married William Benjamin Reynolds and they were my 3rd great-grandparents. She died of a fever during the Civil War after going to Vicksburg to tend to her husbandâ€™s injuries.
3. Thomas Majors was born about 1838.
4. Jasper Majors was born about 1840.
5. Sarah Majors was born about 1842. She married Henry Chapman.
6. Newton Majors was born about 1844.
7. Winifred Majors was born about 1846.
8. James Iverson Majors was born about 1851.
9. Rodolphus L. Majors was born 1853 and died 1911. He is buried at County Line Primitive Baptist Church in Marion County, GA.
10. Enoch Alonzo Majors was born about 1856. He married Martha Y. Yelverton on Nov. 7, 1878 in Chattahoochee Co., GA.
11. Charles Caleb Majors was born in 1859.
Census records for 1850 show John and Nancy living in Marion Co., GA with 7 children and one teenage boy named John Odum. Whether this was a relative of Nancyâ€™s is not known. John was a farmer with land valued at $1,500 at the time. By 1860 they had moved into neighboring Chattahoochee Co., GA. A man named George Green, age 55 years, was counted in the household. A son-in-law, Henry Chapman, husband of Johnâ€™s daughter Sarah was also counted in the household. Johnâ€™s estate had prospered in the previous ten years with land valued at $2,000 and personal belongings valued at $4,350.
