My gggrandmother Susanah Elizabeth Mode, was born 25 Jul 1849, Dysortville, NC, and died 21 Mar 1925, Vernon, Wilbarger Co., TX.
She married gggrandfather Stephen Aaron Holland, who was -born 4 Oct 1852 in Cocke Co., TN, and died 1915 in Buckholtz, Milam Co., TX.
There is a J. W. Mode, born 9 Sep 1812, died 8 Oct 1900, who is buried next to her husband in Corinth Cemetary.It is not (yet) proved that he is her father.
Can anyone shed light on this mystery?I have looked at the NC census transcriptions and marked some possibilities, but am still confused. (Familiar, no?)
According to tradition Susanah Mode's father was born in Pennsylvania and fought for the North during the Civil War.I know of records of Modes in Milam County, TX, as late as 1960.I don't yet know their connection to Susanah Elizabeth.
