I've been told that my great-grandfather, Marshall Canie Lassitter, was born in 1900 in Florala-- which I understand to be a town in Covington County.I'm having trouble finding much about Marshall's family. What I have is this:
Marshall Canie Lassitter b. 12 Sep 1900, Florala, Covington Co., AL m. Emma Christine Andersen (b. 30 Mar 1904, Racine, WI, moved to AL at six months of age, d. 2 Jan 1978, Baldwin Co., AL) on 28 June 1923, Bay Minette, Baldwin Co., AL d. 8 May 1970, Baldwin Co., AL
Marshall and Emma had ten children-- four boys and six girls-- one of whom is my grandfather, John Kenneth Lassitter.
I'm not sure how long Marshall lived in Florala, but somehow I get the feeling that it wasn't for long.By age 23, at least, he had moved to Baldwin Co., where he met and married Emma.
I'd appreciate any information anyone might be willing to share about Marshall or his parents and siblings.
