Jan, Thank you SO much for responding to my message.We have information that Hebert (or John Hubbard or Herbert) was married 2nd to a Mary READ on 02DEC1865 in Columbia, AR.Did he marry Mary SMITH after that?Or was Mary SMITH a widow of a READ?We have only found the "Marry" SMITH listed also on Henry Clay GARLINGTON's death certificate and father not known.This comes from Thesta Scogland's book. I have Henry Clay's birthdate as 03SEP1868 LA. In the 1870 census Mary appears to be 25 years old, so I guess it is not impossible that she was married to a READ before Hebert GARLINGTON.Perhaps her husband died during the Civil War.Just a guess.
I don't see a Jesse Washington GARLINGTON listed in the Garlington Book, but I suspect it is quite incomplete.It sure hasn't helped us a lot with our Mary J. GARLINGTON who was "probably" the daughter of Hebert.I would love to exchange any information that might help you.And I would sure like to know what you have, as well. Thanks so much for the help!
