This was her second will. She had a will in Wilkes County Georgia but changed her will when she left Wilkes Co to move in with another daughter in Fayette County.

After Fadda Jarrott died, Althalia lived with her daughter Frances and her husband Peter Bennett in Wilkes. They were to inherit much of her estate according to this will. When she left Wilkes County she cut them from the will and made out a new one..

Wednesday, October 21, 1998 DAR will honor Starr family ancestor Sunday

By CAROLYN CARY Contributing Writer

A special ceremony for Athaliza Carroll Pinkston Jarrot will be held Sunday, Oct. 25, 1998. She is buried at the County Line United Methodist Church Cemetery in that part of Spalding County that was originally Fayette County. The ceremony will be at 3 p.m.

She was the widow of a Revolutionary War veteran, Shadrack Pinkston, who had served as a bodyguard for Gen. George Washington.

After his discharge they moved to Wilkes County, Ga., where he died. She subsequently married Fadda Jarrot, also a Revolutionary War veteran, and upon his death, she moved with family members to Fayette County in the early 1830's.

Her daughter, Charlotte Pinkston, married Benjamin Franklin Starr and Atha made her home with them. It was this Starr family for whom Starr's Mill was named, although it had been built and owned by others for about 40 years.

Atha was born in c. 1754 and died in 1846. She was buried on the homeplace which was then Fayette County, now Spalding County.

To get to the County Line United Methodist Church, go south on Hwy. 92, just after crossing into Spalding, turn left on Birdie Road, go about 1.5 miles to County Line Church Road, turn left and continue about a half mile.
