I am seeking any info on my great great grandfather Harry Dinwiddie born April 1 1864 in Henry co, TN.
Harry is first found on the 1870 Henry Co,TN census living with Seth Dinwiddie. On this census it shows Harry being White and the son of Seth. Needless to say I figure I had the wrong Harry until I looked on the 1880 census that listed Harry still living with Seth but this time he is noted as being Mulatto.
On the 1900 census Harry is now living in Carroll Co, TN with wife and Family. Seth and his family has also moved to Carroll Co,TN. Seth is living with his family plus a female servent named Kissie, Kelzie or Kiziah. In 1920 Kissie is living with the son of Seth a man named Ballard Dinwiddie.
OK, This is the strange part, After recieving the death record for Harry who died in 1933 I was shocked to see that his son Oscar Dinwiddie stated that the named of Harry's father was Seth Dinwiddie of TN and His mother was Kissie Dinwiddie.
I guess my question is do I accept the 1870 census and Harry's Death cert as being the truth? And if so how does one document this?
