MAYO Family: TN to AR
Seeking information on the Mayo Family of TN. Adolphus Mayo was born 1852 in TN (per the census) and wed Mattie (maiden name unknown) who was born in 1863 in TN. They had children: James, Myra, Cora, William, Thomas, Lee, John, Mattie, Georgia and Robert. Adolphus died between 1904 and 1908; Mattie remarried to Benjamin Green in 1908, also of TN. These families resided in the Lauderdale County area of TN.
I have not been successful in locating Adolphus Mayo in the 1880 or 1870 census records. Other than Adolphus being skipped by the census takers (not an unusual occurrence), any speculation as to what could have happened to him? He would have been 28 years of age in 1880.
Some of Adolphus' descendants moved across the Mississippi River to Blytheville, Mississippi County, AR (in particular son Thomas Mayo).
