I have located a marriage certificate for a Francis P. Brazzel to a J. B. Bowers that married in Yalobusha County, MS on October 5, 1890. I believe these are my great grandparents. Francis apparently went by the name Fannie/Fanny. She had a daughter Mary Lee Bowers July 5, 1891 and died either in child birth or shortly thereafter.
I heard a story that her husband stole the daughter from her. I only know that my grandmother, Mary Lee Bowers, was not raised by her mother.
If this sounds familiar to anyone, please contact me at SFra351734@aol.com
