I am researching my gggrandfather John R. Frazier b.1846 Wayne Co.,TN d.1922 Dyer Co.,TN. I have an old journal that one of his daughters kept (51 pages) and she mentions her fathers bro/sis. 1/2 sis. Sally, 1/2 bro. Sam, and George & Jim.
Later in the journal (1917) she said the family travels to Dyersburg,TN (from Stelle, MO) to see daddy's sister Sally and her 2 boys John & Doug Surratt, and cousin Bill Dunkins. (her spelling may be off) I found the following: ------------ On the 1870 Wayne Co.,TN Census WY-453 All living in same household (#106)
JOHN ALFORD M-W-70 Occ-Miller brn. SC MARY (wife) F-W-65 TN --- ELIZABETH ELLISON F-W-27 TN TAMMY H. (dau) F-W-10 S.H. (son) 9mos --- SARAH FRAZIER F-W-23 TN JOHN JAMES (son) 11mos
------------ On the 1880 WAYNE CO.,TN ED-165 VOL34 SALLY FRAZIER F-W-34 TN JAMES M-W-11 F.E. (dau) F-W-3<---living with Polly Alford, relationship grandaughter.
Was Sallie an Alford, and married a Frazier? Has anyone seen this before? All information is very much appreciated.
