Hyde, Micajah (abt 1797-1875)-Hall Co., GA

Micajah Hyde was born abt. 1797 in Wilkes Co., GA and died 1875 in Hall Co., GA. His wife was a Mary,  last name unknown. I think his father was David Hide (Hyde) born about 1768 in Wilkes, GA, died about 1845 in Hall Co., GA.


Micajah and Mary Hyde’s children were the following:


  1. Jesse Daniel Hyde was born 11 June 1825 in Hall Co., GA and died 10 May, 1883 in  Winston Co., AL.  Jesse married Sarah Jarome Barton on 3 Sept 1850 in Hall Co., GA.  They are both buried in Sardis Cemetery, Winston Co., AL.


    Their son William Jackson Hyde was born 17 May 1861 in Lynn, AL and died 17 Oct 1946 in  Haleyville, AL.  William married Harriet Elizabeth Barnett Hyde.  Their daughter Sarah (Sadie) Hyde Newman was my grandmother. I have a lot of history on the Hydes and Bartons who moved from Hall Co., GA, to Winston Co., AL.


  3. Greenberry Hyde b. 1826 Hall Co., GA, married Mary Jane Bell 29 Aug 1843


  5. Harriet Hyde b.1829 Hall Co., GA, married Elias E. Alred 11 Sept 1847


  7. Elizabeth Hyde b. 1830 Hall Co., GA


  9. William Jackson Hyde b. 1834 Hall Co., GA, d. Oct 1855, married Mary Carolina Head 15 Mar 1852


  11. Melinda Hyde b. 11 Oct 1839 Hall Co., GA, d. 11 Sept 1913 Hall Co., GA, married Levi Broom 28 Dec 1856


  13. Mary Hyde b. 1826 Hall Co., GA, married John Simmons


  15. Susannah J. Hyde b. 1838 Hall Co., GA marriage not known

DNA Data:

To my knowledge none of the living males in this Hyde line have had Y-DNA testing, but there might be some willing to participate.  I have had mtDNA and Family Finder testing done at on FTDNA.  So far I have not been matched with any Hydes except for my first cousin, also a great granddaughter of William Jackson Hyde.


If you are of this line, please leave a reply with your name and email address. Thanks!


  • I’m not sure if i fall in to the hall county georga lines but i do know my great grandfather was from north ga his name was joe hyde and he married a Cherokee names xenobia from winston county alabama and that is currently where i reside. my grand father had brothers and som more family mov to this area also

  • I am the great granddaughter of William Jackson Hyde. My grand father was Joe R. Hyde. usually called Rile by everyone who knew him. I have been trying to trace the line and have gotten as far as some census that put Jesse next door to Macajah. There is even one with David and Macajah. Just wondering how far along you are in your search?

  • Richard Hyde may have been the first immigrant in my family line: 1. Richard Hyde married Mary Cotton.
    2. Richard Hyde married Mary Evans. 3. David Hyde married Mary Wilkins. 5. Stephen Hyde married Mary mollie L Waddell. 6. Noel Hyde married Elizabeth Black. 7. Charles William Waddell Hyde married Mary Williams. 8. Charles William Hyde married Martha Lathona White. 9. Ira Herschel Hansel Jackson Hyde married Maude Elizabeth Woodward. 10. Urban Alexander Hyde married Lillian Eliese Wildman (my parents.) As the 11th generation in this line of Hydes, originally from South Carolina, I’m wanting to know more factual information about those first two Richard Hydes. I HAVE NO IDEA IF MY LINE EVER LIVED IN NORTH CAROLINA. Thanks for any asssistance.

    • Dorothy, there were three Stephen Hyde/Hides in the 1790 census. One of them is Stephen Hyde of Anson County, NC, who was the son of David Hyde and Mary Wilkins. He is mentioned in David Hyde’s will (NC, 1785). He was a slaveholder, as were almost all in the extended Richard Hyde line. This Stephen of Anson was married to Susanna Colson Fanning and is also mentioned in her father John Colson’s will (SC, 1789). John Colson was a Tory and I believe that Stephen was also. Both Hyde and Colson complained to the provisional government of NC concerning confiscation of their lands, 1786 – that record will clarify this Stephen’s descendants.
      The second Stephen only appears in the 1790 census and no other. I *think* Stephen Hide of Surry County, SC is the one married to Mary “Mollie” Waddell, and she appears as a widow in the 1800 Spartanburg, SC census, very close to Stephen’s brother George Hyde/Hide, who has moved from his land in Surry NC to Spartanburg SC. This branch of Hydes did not leave wills, but there are associations with probate records and land purchases between a Samuel, George, Charles and this Stephen Hide/Hyde. Possibly someone could jump in here with additional information? This is where I get confused.
      The third Stephen Hide/Hyde/Hede appears in Greenville, SC in 1790 and is the one associated with the Noel Hide who married Elizabeth Black. James, Noel and Isaiah Hide are all quite close to one another on the 1800 census, while Stephen is either not in Greenville or not a head of household (look for older males)…so I’m not saying that the Stephen Hide/Hyde of Surry is *not* Noel’s father, just that we need some clarification between Stephen of Greenville, SC and Stephen of Surry, NC – one of whom served in the Revolutionary War. Anyone? Tom?

      • Look at the year 1610-1669 he’s the first,1647- 1710 2nd, 1705- 1785 3th, Richard the pirate was just that.work your way back .

        • I’m direct line, if your kin to Richard hyde, David hyde 1805 hall co G.A, you go back to the year 1167, an even to the 4th cent

    • Hello cousin,like dais before, I’m a direct line, the hydes to 1167, people get stuck at. Hyde the piate, he isn’t the 3th,I could take back 1167, look at Matthew de hyde, work your way back, anyway Richard the first is 1610-1669, Richard the 2nd is 1647-1710, the 3th is 1705-1785, the pirate was just that, the martins, an the Farley’s married into the hydes,i have everything in my books, it’s going to blow your mine!

  • I think that my grandfather, Rufus Homer Hyde, was related to this family. He was born in 1909 in Fulton County, Ga. (I believe), and died in 1995 in Cleveland County, NC. This is his DSS card. Unfortunately, I don’t have much more information on his childhood than that provides.

    • Blake, this is Tom “Doc” Hyde’s direct line, so I’ve asked him to take a look at this. In my reply to Dorothy, which appears directly above your comment, is a breakdown of the Stephen Hydes. There’s quite a lot of (free) information on Familysearch.org, so you may want to use that to get birth, marriage, death, census and other records to fill in the blanks of this outline: Rufus Homer Hyde b 6 Aug 1909, married Epthia Pauline Curtis….Rufus’ parents were Rufus Thornton Hyde b 1881 and Della Clark b 1886….Rufus T’s parents were Daniel Tense Hyde b 1835 and Martha Eulone Mabry b 1848 (father Osbern Mabre/Mabry)…they appear in the 1870 census Shoal Creek, Dawson, GA next door to Pinien or Pinion family. Confederate soldier. Daniel T’s parents were…it gets very sketchy from here….possibly Daniel or David Hide/Hyde…On the 1810 census for Greenville, SC there’s a young Daniel – although could be David – Hide, approx 22 years old with his young wife. They are living near Linderman/Lenderman, Redman/Redmon, and Ray families, as well as Jacob Black and Samuel Dyer. In the 1830 census for Pickens, SC they are living next to Stokes Pinion, Noel Hyde and Stephen Hyde…Daniel Hide/Hyde’s parents are said to be Stephen Hyde and Mary “Molly” Waddell. On Hyde DNA, this is our R-M512 Group from England.

  • I’m trying to figure out what hyde line I belong to. My 3x great grandfather was Rufus F Hyde. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • Mary, yours is the William Christopher Hyde line. i sent you some information via email, let me know if you have any questions.

  • My husband is the 4 greatgrandson of Micajah Hyde. We are looking for more information as well. We hit a stumbling block with him everytime. What could a blood test prove? Thanks for any info ☺

    • AJ, fortunately for us all, a DNA test does not require blood, but just a Q-tip rubbed gently on the inside of your cheek then sealed in a vial and mailed back to Family Tree DNA. Our surname project has descendants of Micajah, and Diane Parvin is a good person to speak with about that, as is Tom Hyde. I’ll send you an email directly.

  • Diane, I am related to Micajah Hyde also. Micajah-William Jackson-William Thomas (Thom)-Nelia Hyde Wood-Lottie Blanch Wood Benson-Nellie Margaret Benson Webb-Mike Webb.
    I would very much lik to be part of your discussion group on the Hyde’s.
    Do you have any information on where William Jackson Hyde and Mary Caroline Head Hyde are buried? Mary Caroline’s, parents, Billy and Sarah Head, are buried at Airline Baptist Church.
    Also, did you know that William Thom Hyde operated a grist mill in Hall County? Hall County bought the mill several years ago and is now in the process of restoring the mill. I think they are planning a dedication in the near furture.
    Again, please add me to your association and list.

    • Hi Mike, thank you for your post, I would be glad to share information and eraser have our Hide/Hyde families with you. Micajah Hyde’s son Jesse Daniel Hyde, was my great great grandfather, married Sarah Jarome Barton. Your William Jackson would have been Jesse’s brother, and my great grandfather William Jackson would have been named after him. I believe your William Jackson died in the Civil War. I believe he was born in 1834, Hall Co., GA, married Mary Caroline Head 15 March 1852, daughter of William Head and Sarah Thompson. The Hydes and Bartons were very active in the Timber Ridge Baptist Church located about 11 miles outside of Gainesville, GA. Micajah Hide and his wife Mary joined by letter May 1852. William Jackson and Mary Caroline Head were received “by experience “ in September, 1853. I don’t know the date of William Jackson’s death, will look further into his Civil War records. I found C. Hide in the 1860 census living with William and Sarah Head and Thomas Hide, age 6 and Jackson Hide, age 4. I found Mrs. M. C. b. 1833, d. Oct. 1910, buried in the Timber Ridge Cemetery, Hall Co., GA. In 1859 my Barton/ Hyde families migrated to Winston Co., AL, and most of my search has been there. I’m glad to be finding more about the other children of Micajah. Thanks again, I look forward to sharing more information.

  • Hello,
    I was made aware of this site by Dan Hyde. My gig grandfather was Ansel Madison Hyde. He was born in Georgia and moved to Marion/winston county in Alabama. The area where they lived was Thornhill and he owned a store there. My great grandfather was Oralndo Hyde he was called Lando by everyone and moved with his mother to Florence, Alabama after the death of his father in 1886. I think it his ties into the Micajah line somehow. Thanks Debe

    • This would be Robert Orlando Hyde, 1879 – 1936, (not to be confused with Orlando Cortez Hyde, different line as far as I know). Robert Orlando was as you say, the son of Ansel Madison Hide/Hyde and Mary Amanda Hicks. Ansel and Mary can be found in the 1860 census in Winston, AL, 1870 and 1880 censuses in Marion, AL. Censuses show Ansel born circa 1833 in GA, both parents born GA. Marriage record for Ansel M Hyde and Mary A Hicks in Hall County, GA 29 Sept 1853. Ansel, various spellings, is believed to be a son of David Hide/Hyde of Hall County, GA, born in GA circa 1804 and appearing on the 1850 census there, so this is one of the David Jrs as Sr was already aged 60-69 in 1830 Hall County Census. This appears to make Ansel Madison a brother of one of the Micajahs and a cousin of the “Micajer” (age 30-40) and William (age 20-30) Hydes living next to David Sr in 1830. The best person to contact about this line is Diane Parvin, whose email is provided above.

    • Rose, please be as specific as you can. Are we talking about Cherokee or another tribe? Is this thought to have come down through the Pound/Pounds line?

    • So far as I know neither I nor any of my Hyde/Barnett /Pounds relatives who have had DNA testing have shown any Native American DNA.

  • My great great grandfather was William Jackson Hyde born 1834; died 1855. Married Mary Caroline Head born 1833; died 1910. Both buried at Timber Ridge Baptist church, Gainesville, Georgia.

    My great grandfather was Jessie J. Hyde; married Harriett Caroline Greenway.
    Both buried at Whitehall Baptist Church, Gainesville, Georgia.

    Any help in which Hyde line would be appreciated.

  • My great-grandfather is William Jackson Hyde. My bother and I just visited the Sardis Cemetery in Lynn, AL where his father Jessie Daniel is buried. Unfortunately, the grave of his wife is unmarked now. We also visited the Union Grove Cemetery in Bear Creek, AL where William and Elizabeth and several of their children are buried. My grandparents Thad Gordon and Susie Hyde Gordon are buried nearby in the Ireland Cemetery. I would love to have any information you may have accumulated on the Hyde or Barton families. My email is below.

    Thank you,
    Freda Gordon Silva

    • William Jackson Hyde and wife Harriet Elizabeth Barnett are part of the Micajah line. This page needs updating. Diane Parvin is the genealogist to contact with questions. Diane, please email me when you get a chance. Thanks!

  • Does anyone know where Ansel Madison Hyde was buried? he died in 1870’s in Winston county Alabama. He was married to Mary Amanda Hicks. thanks Debe

  • Donald B. Dodd and Wynelle S. Dodd published a book in 1972 “Winston: An Antebellum and Civil War History of A Hill County of North Alabama”, which includes an appendix with compiled cemetery records. The following record is recorded: Ans. M. Hyde 9/23/1830-10/8/1885; M.A. Hyde (wf) 18?-9/22/1889. Hyde Cem. W. of Haleyville.

  • Looking for parents/ancestors of Susanna(h) Elizabeth Hyde of Greenville Cty, SC. Married to Lewis Robert Cox of same county and mother of Martha Louella Cox Forrester, born in 1872 in Mauldin, Greenville Cty, SC.

    Thank you for any info,

    • Susan Hide (var spellings) of Greenville, SC born 20 Aug 1844 m Lewis Robert/Robertson Cox b 19 Aug 1845. Numerous books on Cox family history. Per “Forgotten Heroes: Police Officers Killed in Dade County 1895-1995”, Lewis’s great great grandfather William Cox Sr (1730-1814) was a resident of Greenville at the time of his death. Susannah and her husband are buried at Bethel United Methodist Church Cemetery in Simpsonville, Greenville County, SC, along with others of both extended families. The Greenville News 3 July 1903 published her obituary, naming her father as Abner Hyde and confirming that she and Lewis had 9 children. She died at Mauldin, formerly called Butler’s Cross Roads. Hyde, Cox and Bramlett families all lived in this area. From this point on, a deeper level of research is needed to confirm connections. Lewis may appear in the 1850 census in Greenville, family #1760. 1755 is Newton Bramblete. Not far, Hyde families #1846 and #1848 with probable relatives of Susannah. Family #1849 is Wilson Ray and family #1856 is Jacob Harlan Hide, possible but unconfirmed extended family grouping. We know that John B Hyde who married Margaret Bramlett is a probably relative, as Bramletts appear in same area and are buried in same cemetery as Lewis and Susannah Cox. 1860 census appears to show Lewis living with William Cox family, possible grandfather or uncle in same area, now called Fairview, Greenville, Dublin post office. “Sana” Hyde is living with Wilson Ray family. Same area family #2279 appears to be Susannah’s family living with Pinson family (possible alternate spelling of Pinion?). Recommend contacting area history centers as we have nothing on Abner at present time, and the censuses can only suggest possible relationships.

  • Looking for info on my 3rd great grandfather John Simmons that married Mary Hyde 1858 in Hall County Georgia. They had two sons Thomas and Jackson.

    • Mary Hyde, daughter of Mary and Micajah married John Taliaferro Simmons in Hall County, GA, 23 Dec. 1858. He was the son of Joshua Simmons (1790-1861) and Sarah Lewis (1793-1891), see Genealogy of the Lewis Family in America: From the Middle of the of the seventeeth century down to the present time Volume 1. The information on the Simmons family came from a transcription of the Simmons Family Bible from 1733 to 1923, transcriber Sallie Taylor Simmons. Further information concerning the transcription can be found here http://www.bookofbowie.net/family/INDIs/II4193.html#pedi

  • Hello, I’m researching my mother’s side ancestry. Her name is Juanita Hyde(Simek) born to John H. Hyde and Levonia Savage Hyde of Hall county. My grandfather had a corn mill on Noah Martin Rd off of Old Cornelia Hwy. I believe my mom was born in New Holland and her parents worked for the cotton mills.
    John Henry Hyde’s father was William Thomas Hyde, who was a son of William Jackson Hyde, who was the son of Micajah Hide married to Mary Keen. My research on the Hyde side stops at David Samuel Hide(Hyde), father to Micajah.
    Any historical information is appreciated. Thanks
