Treasure Chest Thursday- Birth & Death Certificates (This one of Dovie King Buffington)

This is the Georgia Death Certificate of Dovie Emmeline King Buffington.  She is the daughter of John King, Jr. (1795-1852) & his wife,  Kezia King (1805-1878).  Dovie King married Ezekiel Buffington (1832-1911). He is the son of Ezekiel Lafayette Buffington and his wife, Nancy Gilmer/Gilmore.  Both born in Hall County, GA they later moved through Lumpkin County, GA and later into Ellijay, GA in Gilmer County.

Dovie & Ezekiel are the parents of my great-great-grandfather, Walter Leonedas Buffington
He often went by Walter Lee Buffington.

Birth and Death Certificates can be one of our best treasures to find as genealogists. Just remember- they often contain mistakes.  This one has an obvious error or two.
