Debnam & Hight Family


My 3rd great-grandmother was named Laura Debnam Ross. Growing up, I was told that her maiden name was "High" however, when finding her 1874 marriage certificate, her name is listed as Laura Debnam. On her children's death certificate, her maiden name is listed as "High(t)" or "Debnam". Listed on her marriage certificate was her mother "Celestea Debnam" and I located her in the 1880 Census with her husband, Simon Hight and family. My ancestor was one of the eldest children, with she and 2 other sisters surname listed as Debnam. On marriage certificates and death certificates, Simon is listed as their father. Would it be safe to assume that this family was owned by 2 separate owners?
