unsure Malachi Pickett or Thomas j Rollins
I have found new information on this picture,
on a Rollins site they have the same picture
and they say it is Thomas Jefferson Rollins
from Paulding Co GA and TX. This could be, as
he would be my ggm Nancy Rollins Parker's brother. My grandmother was Laura Rollins Parker Pickett married to James Albert Pickett,
the grandson of Malachi.Thomas Jefferson Rollins was the uncle or Laura Parker Pickett.
This was my original message, what we Pickett,s thought.
We think that this is Malachia Pickett son of Micajah Pickett from Rutherford NC, Malachia moved to GA from Greenville co SC and Rutherford co NC in the 1830. He owned the land where the Pickett.s Mill Civil War Site and now State Park is located in Paulding CO GA. This site was called the Hell Hole. Malachi mother was Susanna Thompson Johns from Rutherford NC. Malachi was born in Rutherford Co NC in 1803 - died 1886 in Dallas Paulding Co GA.
