9. 1870 census: Middleton Upshaw family not found in Alabama or Georgia 1870 census indexes, although he was living in Tallapoosa Co, Alabama in 1870; a search of this census may locate him.

SECONDARY SOURCES:

1. Personal knowledge of Mr. W. Roy Upshaw, Waco, Texas, from his father, Leroy C. Upshaw.

2. Sophie W. Upshaw, "Captain William Upshaw, Gent. Planter of Virginia and Allied Families" (Baltimore, MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1975), page 32.

COMMENTS:

1. Middleton Upshaw had no military service or pension for any military service.

2. Lived in Tallapoosa Co, AL, from 1860s to 1883 (need to check Tallapoosa Co, AL, deeds for exact dates).

3. Need to search 1883 newspapers and the New Hope Baptist Church minutes (if they survive) for a possible obituary of him which may contain more biographical information.

4. The only other possibility for the father of Middleton, other than Forrester Upshaw, is Richard Upshaw Sr., son of Leroy Upshaw (RS). Richard Upshaw Sr. had a male under 10 years old in his household in 1820 Elbert Co., page 162. Also, in 1830 Walton Co, GA, census, page 158, Richard Upshaw has 1 male born 1815-1820. Richard Upshaw Sr. evidently died in Walton Co., GA, between 1830 & 1840, although no estate or other evidence of his death has been found.
