I have been searching for my grandparents for years so that I can start doing a family tree. I know that my grandfathrer, Levi Breedlove, along with a brother was taken from Bainbridge, GA to Jackson County FL by the sheriff department. My grandfather stayed in FL while his brother return to GA. He married a lady in Greenwood, FL by the name of Mary Jane Massenburg. I have a copy of their marriage license. They were married on 8/27/1895. I can not find any records of when they died or where they are buried.
