If it were easy, it wouldn’t be such a fun way of having headaches.
The majority of critical links in my family tree is “Smith”, and they seemed to love the name “James” as well.
My gggrandfather’s obit states where he died and his son-in-law was minister of the church, but it doesn’t tell where gggrandfather was buried.
Someone wrote all over the names in the census record. Who let them do that?
The 1900 Houston County, AL census shows an 18 year old daughter listed with the other children in my great-grandparents’ household. Only none of my relatives ever heard of her. So I don’t know if she died young or was a visitor mistakenly listed as a daughter.
