Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

How sweet it is!

Saw you mention NC, just took a look for my great grandparents in NC and SC
Family Search.

Up popped a WEST VIRGINIA marriage in the South Carolina data base!

I had to take a second look but there it was... our Anna Louise from
Orangeburg SC married Eugene Bowman
(that's our cousin) from OHIO ( my grandmother used to take us there to visit the Bowman side of the family)
but the marriage took place in... West Virginia - in 1912!

I could not believe my eyes because they were not identified as Black/Mulatto in these census records

I'm mentioning all these details because we generally do a search to find the Names that are Black/Mulatto, but this one almost fooled me.

Found another Marriage Record for a "Thomas A." and
there it was, all the information that I dreamed about.... gave the names of my great grandparents with their correct middle initials.

I did not even know they had a child named Thomas A.... got to go now, off to Family Seach again. :)
