In Response To: Re: Skyles Family ()
This is a long shot, but have you looked at the Laura Jones on the 1880 census in Mount Pleasant, Marshall County, Mississippi, who is living with her husband Samuel. This may not be your Laura, but the family is black, and have a daughter, Ethee (could this be Effie?). I also notice that on Effie's death certificate she indicates that her father was born in Virginia. The Sam Jones in Mississippi was also born in Virginia. Additionally, a family surnamed Voss (could it be the same Vaulx related individuals in Tenn.?) who are the brother and sister of Samuel are also in the home. Your Laura was born in 1851 in Tenn. and this one is born 1854 in Tenn. The children's names are different, but you should take a look.
