I was not able to find Henry in the 1870 Census for Bullock County. I will check the 1866 AL Census.
I have a copy of the marriage records for Effie and Ernest Gaston. Two children born to this union. Ernestyne and Arthur. Family members say Effie also gave birth to Beatrice and my father Elbert both have last name Leslie and their father as Sydney Leslie. I have found no documentation of this marriage. Effie died in Detroit, MI in 1944(have copy of death certificate and it shows her last name as Gaston). Arthur ran away in 1926 and was not seen again. He was last known to be in IL somewhere. Henrietta was married 4 times and I have copies of marriage records for 3 which were in Jefferson County. 1. W.A. Richardson, 2. Henry Leslie, 3. ? Caldwell(the missing marriage record;her signature on SS Application), 4. Robert Barker. No children were born to any of these marriages.
I beleive that Dr. Robert Lee was Henry's brother.
The 1900 Census records has all the children including Walter in the household with Annie and Henry. Henrietta was not born yet. 1920 Records shows Arthur as the head of household with Annie(mother), Henrietta(sister), Effie Smith(Roomer), Stroker Smith(Roomer), & Benjamin Washington(Roomer). I drew a blank in 1910 for both Bullock and Jefferson Counties. I checked this forum several times and this is the first time I saw this message.
