I'm trying to find "Shiney" or Sine Eakes b. 1871 TN. She m. Mr. Hardiman abt 1897 or earlier- I think in Limestone Co. AL.could have been in Giles Co., TN. Their daughter was Lillie Mae and she was b. 1897 in TN. Mr. Hardiman d. bef. 1903. Sine then married Martin Solberg in 1902. 1910 Fed Cen. shows Sine in Hazel Green, AL (sheet 9B line 63). Listed as Sine Solberg (wife) and mother of :Lillie Hardiman,and Stella, Oscar, Albert,Rolly Solberg.
EAKES/ Hardiman line eventually marries up with the WHITT family in Ardmore, Limestone, AL. That combined family marries into the HUTTO family. Also- family story (legend) says there is native american (poss. Seminole) on this side.Do you know anything about this? Here's what I'm working with -
