Re: [MS] Loggins
In Response To: [MS] Loggins ()

If her husband was Alex, this might be the family in 1910:

1910 United States Federal Census
Name: Bell Loggins
Age in 1910: 30
Estimated birth year: abt 1880
Birthplace: Alabama
Relation to Head of House: Wife
Father's Birth Place: Mississippi
Mother's Birth Place: Mississippi
Spouse's name: Alex
Home in 1910: Greenwood South Ward, Leflore, Mississippi
Marital Status: Married
Race: Black
Gender: Female
Household Members: Name Age
Alex Loggins 35 abt 1875 AL
Bell Loggins 30
Sara Loggins 14 abt 1896 MS
Jerry Loggins 12 abt 1898 MS

On the image they are enumerated as a separate household, living in the same dwelling (#919) with a widowed Edith Nally, 48, born in MS. And another widow, 55, Martha Love, and her 20 y/o son, Frank Burton.

The census reflects both Alex and Bell reported this as a first marriage for them, and Bell reported she was the mother of 4 children but only 2 living.

Have you ordered a copy of her original application for a SocSec #? She would have been required to list her parents' names including her mother's maiden name. This could be her SSDI listing:

Social Security Death Index
Name: Belle Loggins
SSN: 304-26-6324
Last Residence: Wilkes Barre, Luzerne County, PA zip code 18702
Born: 1 Oct 1876 Died: Apr 1969
State (Year) SSN issued: IN Before 1951)

Linda Durr-Rudd could probably obtain a copy of Alex and Bell's marriage certificate (email rtnlinda@earthlink.net) and her website is http://www.angelfire.com/folk/gljmr/index.html. Sometimes witness names on the marriage certificate can provide helpful info:

Mississippi Marriages, 1776-1935

Spouse: Alex Loggins
Marriage Date: 11 Apr 1900
County: Montgomery
