My ggggrandmother was Ada Clyatt Reeves. According to her death certificate, she was born in Childersburg – Talladega County, Alabama May 8, 1882.
I have a marriage certificate stating that she married H.G.Reeves (Harrison Groce) March 12, 1899 in Talladega Countyat the home of her father.
They had 2 daughters, Katie Belle born 1901 in Childersburg, and Alice born 1902.
Harrison Groce Reeves died before 1910, and Adaremarried William Cole.They are in the 1910 Shelby county Census.According to that census, both her parents were born in Alabama.
Ada’s death certificateHas the name C.B. Clyattlisted as her father, andDK ?as her mother.
I can’t find a Clyatt/Cliett in the 1880 Alabama census with those initials.
I did find H.J. Cliett (Henry Jonathan) in Talladega in 1880 with a daughter, Ada , age 5.I thought this might could be my Ada, even thoughher age would be off according to her death certificate. But I believe this Ada Cliett is listed in the 1900 Jefferson County census as a border in the household of her cousin, Albert Wynneand she was single.
Thiscould not be the right Ada, as mine was married to H.G. Reeves in 1899.
I cannot find Ada Reeves nor H.G. Reeves in the 1900 census.
Does anyone have any clue as to who was the father of Ada Clyatt?Do you know of any Clyatt living in 1880 with the first initial of “C”? He would have been still living in 1899.
Also,we have always been told that Ada was full blooded indian.Has anyone come across an indian connection with the Clyatts?
