In 1910 my Great-Great Grandparents, George Robert Craft and his wife, Effie Verona Powell, were living on Sanders-Ferry Road in Gains, Militia District 199, Elbert County, Georgia. "Bob," as he was called, was a general farmer working rented land on his "own account." The couple had been married for 19 years and had seven children. Both could read and write. My Great Grandfather, Bennie E Craft, was a 14 year old boy living with his parents. He was attending school at this time.
In 1910 my Great-Great Grandparents, John H Evans and his wife, Leila Frances Craft, were living on an unnamed road in Gaines, Militia District 199, Elbert County, Georgia.

My Great Grandmother, Sallie Ruth Evans, was an eight year old girl living with her parents. She was attending school, but whether or not she could read and write is marked through.
