In the online marriages of Barbour Co., I find the marriage of Columbus Herring and Catherine Utsey 19 October 1854. I believe this is the couple I am looking for and find them later in 1860 in Choctaw Co., AL on census. Columbus was listed as Lafayette C. Herrin born 1835 in GA and Catherine was born 1838 in AL. Their children were born about right for this to be the marriage. His father lived in Dale Co., AL in 1850 and he was listed as Christopher C. Columbus is in Texas for the 1870 census, listed as Columbus with the same children as given in the 1860 AL census. Anyone researching this family or these family names? Need help to try to make the jump between these two names. So much is the same.. The Lafayette C. had a daughter R.V. Olivia born Oct. 1857 that is an ancestor of my husband. On her Death Certificate it is stated by her daughter that R.V.'s mother's maiden name was Lutze.
