Birth and husband

Georgia "Carline" Johnson was born August 1, 1875 in Kellis Store, Kemper County, MS . Her second given name was used and pronounced Carlean and Carline.

Carline's married in 1891 to William Elijah Perryman. Perryman seems to be a surname change after the 1880 census which listed his name as John Hopson. It is unknown why this occurred. Some oral history stated that he wanted name change because of a troubled situation in Kemper County. Others speculated he found out his father's name. However, DNA suggests that Perryman in NOT his father's surname. It points to a surname of Williams.
William Elijah was the first African American agricultural agent in the area. He held that position in Neshoba County. MS

Frederick recalls going to his Grandma Carline's house.
He said, " Grandma had all these fruit trees; apple, peach, and plum. She canned and made preserves from the fruit. Also, she had all kinds of birds in the yard, chicken, geese, ducks, guinea fowl and turkeys. When she needed a turkey to cook we had to find the nest. The turkeys were fairly smart so it took some time. My cousin Homer and I were always together. Homer was Uncle Curtis' son. He was the one who died in college, I think from meningitis. Anyway, Homer and I had to always get some sticks and make a brush broom. We were responsible for sweeping the dirt yard from all the bird droppings. We also got into mischief. I recall Homer and I driving the geese babies to the creek. We each got on one side of the creek and had fun tapping the heads of the babies with a long pole (stick). The babies would go under and come up the other side where one of us would tap the head again. We really didn't tap hard but they made a lot of noise and grandma came up on us real fast. She got a switch off of a tree and whoopped us both real good for tapping the baby geese.
But for the most part Grandma was quiet. She didn't say much and when she did talk it was right to the point. She would talk to Papa a lot, though. Real pleasant.
One of the memories I see in my mind is Grandma brushing her hair. She was a small lady and had long straight gray hair down to her waist line. At one time it was all black. She would sit on the porch and flip her hair down and brush for almost an hour.
I remember picking nuts off the ground for her to make pecan pie, too."


Carline died March 11, 1963
