Joseph L. Lock? I have a few of them in the database but none that died in 1864. Do you know who his father was? He is kin to me, but I don't know who he is which is crazy as I thought I had everyone.

The listing for Elizabeth Jane Pellum and William Lock is not correct. She married Joseph L. Lock and after his death in 1864 married Thomas Glass. Joseph's middle name began with an "L" not "I". This is born out by his service records, death record and Elizabeth's claim for monies due him at his death. Feel free to contact me.

Is this the James A Locke that married Martha Ann Creamer, or is it a different James?
I am really trying to find info on W A Locke that was married to Maryann Mahala Whitehead. (have seen her name be Molly, Polly, Maryann Haley, etc.)
There is so much conflicting info on the Whitehead family on here, I am trying to avoid copying people's trees because some of it doesn't even make sense or match the records. Any documented info for the Locke/Whitehead connection would be appreciated.

HI Pat, you still searching for Armstrong's?? Hope this address is good. I think you have my private email, I lost yours. I still have not found who Matthew married, thought it was Sarah Kirkland, but you say she married Martin. Would love to talk to you again.

I have a HISTORY of PANOLA FAMILES book in which my Aunt Marie (Marie was the daughter of Eldrige Mitchell; Gdaughter of Josiah) wrote the article on Josiah and Purity for this book. She mentions Jeff, but the info on his doesn't seem to match census records. But the names maybe helpful if you haven't already found them. She stated, "Jeff was born in 1876 and died in 1903. His wife Edna B. had two sons, Davis and Walter. Joseph and Elmina raised his sons." All of other info about the other siblings appears to be accurate. Don't know if she was taking info from family bible/writings or relating as she remembered it. Purity lived with Eldridge many years until her death. Eldridge lived with Marie many years until his death. I am searching for dates of death for Josiah (which I think is 1885 according to Pension records) and for Purity. There is no marker at where we think they are buried and would like to put something there if I could verify dates. If you have any of this information, I would appreciate having it. Thanks, Kathy (GGranddaugher of Josiah & Purity).

Thanks for your help. My dilemma is trying to find Mary's maiden name. I found a death record of her son Henton Green who died in May 13, 1956, in Dothan, AL. it listed her name as Mary Smtih and his father as George Green. I am unable to link Henton to his Mother and Father.
If anyone can help me or give me some tips as how I can find out what Mary's Maiden name was; I will be grateful. I was told she was an native american but I can't find any native american records in Henry County.

There is a 20 yr. gap in the census records [1880 - 1900] as the 1890 census was burned in the 1920's. Add 20 yrs to everyone's 1880 age for the 1900 census.

ALA Vital records -
VITAL RECORDS include birth, death, marriage and divorce records. Alabama law did not require the recording of birth or death certificates until 1908. The statewide recording of marriage certificates began in 1936 and divorce certificates in 1950. The Alabama Department of Archives and History has indexes to those records, but original certificates must be obtained from the Alabama Center for Health Statistics.
