Rachel Ludie Forehand Kent, daughter of Thomas Aaron Forehand, and Harriet Louisa Lolly, was born Nov 15, 1875.I have two consternations:
In 1880, there is a Rachael Lolly (appx 2 years old), living with a Louisa Lolly (appx 20 years old), and Louisa's parents Henry and Sarah.I'm wondering if this is Rachel Ludy Forehand, born out of wedlock, prior to Louisa marrying Thomas Aaron.
Fast forward to appx 1895, before marrying Sage Jefferson Benjamin Columbus Kent around 1909, Rachel Ludy Forehand was previously married to a gentleman with the last name of Kirkland. It is my understanding that her first husband, last name Kirkland, was murdered. I believe his father may have been Morgan Kirkland, born 1845 in Alabama and living in Walton County, FL in 1910. I think Morgan Kent and possibly Phillip Marvin Kent are actually Rachel's children from her first marriage, and current family lore supports that they aren't actually Kents, but Kirklands.
I am unable to find any information on Rachel's first husband, and feel I should be able to find Morgan Kirkland, born 1895, in the 1900 census, but I can't. I would greatly appreciate any leads or helpful hints.
The probable children of Rachel Ludie Forehand, and the Unknown Kirkland are:
Morgan (Apr 24 1895-Dec 7, 1976; probably formerly Kirkland)
