Carrie Beulah Wilson Waldrep





by William Bradley Dunagan

My grandmother was Carrie Beulah Wilson Waldrep. I never knew my grandfather but I knew this strong willed, very spirited lady we called Grandma Beulah Waldrep.

She was married to George Hamilton Waldrep. George married Carrie Beulah Wilson on 2 Jul 1905 in , Hall Co, GA. The photo above I believe is from their wedding day. He is 20 years of age and she is 19 years old in this photo. Carrie was born on 21 Jan 1886, in Maysville, GA. She died on 6 Feb 1973, in Gainesville, Hall County, GA.

Below is a picture of the George Hamilton and Beulah Waldrep family, taken during the summer of 1939, with George H. and Beulah sitting, holding grandchildren. They had the following children:

Deuward Sherman WALDREP was born 3 Apr 1906. He died in 9 Oct 1983.

James Cicero "J.C." WALDREP was born on 19 Aug 1908. He died on 24 Jan 1964, as a result of a work place accident at the New Holland textile mill in New Holland, GA.

George Richard WALDREP was born on 3 Sep 1913. He died 2 Aug 2002.

Emily Ida Lou WALDREP was born on 24 Sep 1915. She died on 2 June 2002.


Warren Hamilton WALDREP was born on 20 Dec 1920. He died on 18 Oct 1999.

unnamed(female) WALDREP was born on 6 Mar 1925. She died on 6 Mar 1925.


Beulah's father was Cicero Columbus Wilson. Isn't that a great name. Life was not easy for Cicero, born 29 Oct 1856 in Jackson County, GA. He was only seven years old when his father, Posey Wilson was killed at the battle of Vicksburg, MS on 2 Aug 1863, fighting with the CSA, Co. E, Georgia 34th Infantry Regiment. Cicero's mother, Zelma Emily C. Thornton remarried a few years later to Eli Minish and they had several children together.

William Wilson's father migrated to America from Antrim, Ireland. My 6th great grandfather, James Wilson was born in 1703 in Antrim County, Ireland, which is north of Belfast in Northern Ireland. There is some evidence that he paid his passage through indentureship/bond arrangement and later settled in Rockbridge, Virginia, where he died 7 Apr 1776. He was married to Rebecca Wilson Armour(1728-1820) I also found that at least one of his children, Samuel Wilson(1760-1833) served under Washington in the American Revolutionary War.
