The "do not know" response by both parents to where were your parents born is strange. Both knew very well where they were born, and it was not Miss. Also they must have known where their parents were born. Could loosing the Civil war have anything to do with the answer?

This will take some careful review. The parents names are correct, the age for Mary is exactly correct, I did not have a date for Henry,

Problems, she states born in Alabama, should be MS or SC. But at that time her mother and two of her sisters are in Altoona, Alabama visiting her grandfather's family. So even if she knew where she was born she may have associated with Alabama and her grandparents.

She states she has been married for 10 years and is 33 now, so it is easy to belive that this is her first marriage. She states 6 born and 5 now living. There are 5 that are under age 10.

It will be good to have additional proof, but this is a very good base, marriage and 1900 census records. I will continue to look using this as the base.
