Re: Sam Whitfield & Lizzie Scott of MS
In Response To: Sam Whitfield & Lizzie Scott of MS ()
It looks like Ferney or Furney probably had a previous marriage given his age in 1900 and the date of his marriage to Laura:
Name: Ferney Whitfield
You might want to look at this record in 1880:
Name: Fenny Whitfield (looks like it could be Ferney on record)
I realize the age is off compared to 1900 - but I've seen age swings of over 10 years between census periods.
