In Response To: Walker, Mumford and Patience (Southern Virginia) ()
I'm sure you've pored over both the marriage and death certificates but are there any other names on either that matches her family members or neighbors? In my own research of my Dawkins line, I ran into two males with the same name. Which one was my ancestor's brother? The names of the witnesses on the marriage certificate helped to point me to the correct person.
You may already know this, too, but there is a tree on Ancestry.com put up by "lena mcdowell". She chose the Mecklenburg County couple for her tree. She lists them as Munford (not Mumford) and Patience Walker and even submitted a record correction to his given name on Ancestry. Your posting intrigued me because I just recently found out that the white Walker family who last enslaved my Grandpa George Walker, was from Virginia. Also, six of my half-siblings are surnamed McDowell. Good luck.
