I am interested in learning about all my ancestors but some more than others and my Great Grandma Georgiana is one of them. She was born 20 Jun 1899 to Alec Beck and Minnie Belle Burke in Alabama, she had a brother named Charlie who was about four years older than her. By 1910, Georgiana was living in Birmingham, Alabama with her mom and older brother. According to the 1910 Census, Grandma Georgiana had attended school, and knew how to read and write. Three years later, Georgiana had a baby (my Grandma Clittee) with my Great Grandpa James Luther Christian. Grandma Georgiana worked numerous domestic jobs throughout her life to help support herself and her daughter. By 1920 Georgiana was living in East Youngstown, Ohio with her mom, daughter and Stepfather Ed Stacks. Sometime between 1920 and 1926 Grandma Georgiana got married, her husband’s first name is unknown at the moment but his last name was Mason. 10 Jun 1928 Great Grandma Georgiana died from tuberculosis in Indiana County, Pennsylvania at the young age of 28 years old.
