THE ATKINSON FAMILY
IN NORTH GEORGIA
On July 12, 1825, James Atkinson married Martha Greenhill "Patsey" Faulkner in Lincoln Co., NC. She was the daughter of Nicholas Faulkner. A wedding announcement in The Western Carolinian said James was "lately from Virginia." He was born about 1800. James and Patsey are listed on the 1850 census for Lincoln County. Their children were Nancy, Nicholas, Lucy, Susan, John (J. F.), and William.
James' son, Nicholas Faulkner Atkinson, was born November 1, 1827 in Lincoln County. Sometime around 1850, he moved to Cass County (later Bartow), Georgia, and married Elizabeth Abernathy. In 1862, he enlisted in the 18th Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry, with his brother, J. F. He was wounded and captured at Gettysburg, and later paroled. Nicholas died in December, 1887, in Bartow County. He's buried in the Old Macedonia Church Cemetery beside his wife. His children were Easel, Simon, Arinda, Cindy, Hardy, Isham, Lindsay, Rosa, Taylor, and Fanny.
Nicholas' son, Hardy Atkinson, was born in January, 1868, in Bartow County, Georgia. He married Mary F. Hulsey on August 14, 1887, in Cherokee County, Georgia. Hardy died about 1935. He is buried in the Old Macedonia Church Cemetery. His children were Minnie, Trannie, Renda, Andrew, Beulah, and Judson.
Hardy's son, Andrew Jackson Atkinson, was born January 6, 1894, in Bartow County, Georgia. He married Lou Magdalene Shuler on October 22, 1922, in Cherokee County. Andrew died in March, 1975, in Polk County, Florida, where he's buried at Lakeside Cemetery. His children were Willard, Dillard (my father), and Fred.
