After many years of attempting to search my mother's line, 2 weeks ago I found that my great-grandmother was Vinnie (birth record shows nee Luvenia, funeral card shows Lou Vinnie, and grave shows Vinnie Lou) Maranville, who married William Gibson.I have quickly gained a lot of information since that time.Riley was born in Illinois and lived most of his life in Blount, Tennessee.Family history tales are that one of my great grandmother's was born and left at a farm along the Trail of Tears and was taken in by a couple and adopted.As near as I can tell this was Riley's wife, Serilda.
I have been unable to find much on the following Riley / Serilda children: Samuel: b 1865 according to 1880 Census Maria:b around 1886 who married ? Phillips
I have found the following information from a Maria Phillips death record.However the problem is that this appears to be a sister of Riley, given the parents and dates, however everything I have read was that Jabez and Emily Tubbs Maranville had only one child, Riley Pulaski Maranville. Name: Maria A Phillips Death Date: 07 Nov 1919 Death Place: Peoria, Peoria, Illinois Gender: Female Marital Status: Age: 89 Estimated Birth Year: 1830 Birth Date: 24 Feb 1830 Birthplace: Ohio Father: J Meronville Father's Birth Place: Ohio Mother: Emily Tubbs Mother's Titles and Terms (original): Mother's Birth Place: Ohio Occupation: Retired Spouse: Edward Phillips Spouse's Birthplace: Burial Date: 10 Nov 1919
Any information in regards to this line would be greatly appreciated and I'm willing to share what I have as well.
Also is anyone aware if the book by Ron Moranville is still available as all the information I have have found on it is several years old.
