Looking for info on Malinda G. Morgan d. 5-15-1869 Lee Co. Va. LDS shows parents names as Thomas & Harriet Morgan.
Does anyone know how the parents names would have been determined since the death was before death certificates were issued?
I have an ancestory, Thomas J. Morgan who md. Harriet J. Helmandollar in VA in 1864.Harriet's mother's name was Malinda.It seems plausible this Malinda and the one whose death record shows 1869 are the same person.Only problem is age at time of death needs to be verified.Thomas, Harriet and family appeared on 1870 Tazewell Co., VA census & 1880 Lee Co., VA census.
Any ideas on how to find more info concerning this Morgan family at the time they lived in VA would be appreciated.
