In Response To: Re: Booze ()
I need help in finding out the true last name of my ancestor. His death certificate has a different last name than his parents. He was a mulatto. His death certificate stated that his father was born in a state that has no record of him. I have checked several different census records looking for this person and only find his name in states that my ancestor did not live in. His mother is a mystery. Ancestor name is Louis aka Lewis A Oliver born in 1834 Virginia or Alabama. Parents are Tom Booze B. In Courtland,AL and mother Phoebe Woods B in FL. No record of either parent. How do I find out how he got from VA to AL? He also had a name change to Oliver.
