Re: [AL] Whitaker~ John & Mollie
In Response To: [AL] Whitaker~ John & Mollie ()

Janet,

I never even knew those funeral home records were out there. It looks llike VKN posted those some 10 years ago. Those records contain some excellent information and there really isn't much more to know especially about Mollie. I had a John Whitaker in my research in Alabama so I thought I would look to see if there was a connection. I did not find a connection between my Whitakers and yours. The first record that I find for Mollie for certain is the 1910 census in Talladega County Alabama. It appears that she married Henry around 1901. I did not find Mollie, for certain, prior to the 1910 census. My guess is that both she and Henry originated in Randolph County, AL but you'd need to canvas your family for some oral history about Mollie (i.e. who where some of her siblings, etc). You could contact the library in Anniston to see if they have a funeral program for her in their collection. Mollie list her parents as Henry Seamore and Sallie Jones. I do not find a Henry Seamore/Seymore and wife Sallie/Sarah. There are possibilities but you'd need some additional info to feel confident that you've found your Mollie.
