Her name was nearly impossible to read on the birth records but very legible on the 1870 census record. Though her age is indexed wrong at on this 1870 record. Her age is indexed as 19 in an effort to keep the children's ages in chronilogical order. But the image looks like Marietta was 12 years old - which agrees with the birth record.

(As the McWhorter Jackson Sketches say that Miranda's daughter Florence married a Ferrell, I wonder if Marietta's middle name was Florence.....) Ah yes!
