I am looking for information on Rolley Spinks and Sarah Bird who were married in 1848 in Sumter Co AL.Rolley was from neighboring Lauderdale Co MS, and that's where they were living in 1850.A 6 year old James C Byrd (Bird?) b. AL, along with their son Walter 6 mo.,is living with them.
I don't know if BirdByrd was Sarah's maiden name or previously married name.I could not find her in 1860, and it appears that in 1860 Rolley had another wife.In 1870 James C BirdByrd was still in Lauderdale Co MS with wife Narcis(?), and children Sallie and 4 mo unnamed child.
Did Sarah Bird Spinks and Walter Spinks die before 1860?
