My grandfather, Albert Campbell Alexander, Sr., m. (1) Virginia Vicoria Smith b. 1882 in MS.[I descend from him and wife (2) Annie Estelle Boulton]
They had a dau. named Alva who m. Pearl Cooper Blakeney of Taylorsville, Smith Co., MS.
I have been searching for the parents of Virginia Victoria "Virgie" Smith.I was told by a relative that she thought that Virgie was d/o Wm. B. Smith and Cora (Neill) Smith, but this Cora was b. 1882!However, her grandparents, John & Mary Adeline (Alexander) Neill, had a Cora Neill b. 1865 and if she married a Smith, perhaps this is the one whom I seek...I do not know whom she married [she would be the aunt of Wm. B. Smith's wife, Cora Neill].
These folks lived in Montrose, Jasper Co., MS.
My hope is that, since Cora and Alva are not everyday household names, perhaps this will be a hit !Alva is surely a boys name, too, as I think is the case for you.
Make my day???Thanks, Mac Alexander of Cypress, TX. [firstname.lastname@example.org..my home]
