Hello all GA listers,
I want to thank each of you for your responses on my question about
marrying at 11. I'm almost certain that to be her age due to the marriage
date of her parents. The man that she married, turned out to be quite a
monster. The deal is; they would have married abt 1887/88 due to the first
child being born in 1888. However, a cousin found a marriage record of her
marrying a man in 1886 with the same first name different last name. We
havent quite figured out if he may have gotten into trouble in GA/AL as
well, and changed his name, or if she married twice. Now, I personally have
not seen this record of the 1886 marriage, and do not know for fact that
this is my gg grandmother. According to the 1900 census, she was 24 and had
been married for 12 years, which still, only makes her 12. This is my own
finding and I have a copy. Due to the fact we have no 1890 census, I cannot
compare, and the fact that her husband (my gg grandfather) lost his mind in
1902, I cannot even compare with 1910. Although she remarried before 1904
her next two boys by this marriage always carried my gg grandfathers name.
Reason unknown, Unless she just wanted all her children to have the same
last me....Anyway, thanks for all the answers, Who knows, maybe
one day I'll wake up with a fresh mind, and all the answers will be right in
front of me. Here's hoping!! ; )

Again, Thanks to all, for all of your help,
Sharla Linex
