I am researching the Mason family of Spotsylvania Co., VA in the late 1700s and early 1800s.They later moved to Anderson Co., KY in mid-1800s.
In Spotsylvania Co., VA, Elizabeth Mason married ??? Mourning in the late 1700s or early 1800s.Children from this marriage are listed in an 1826 Mason will.I have no further information on this marriage.
In Anderson Co., KY, Elizabeth Mason married Benjamin Mourning on March 29 or 30, 1842.
In the 1850 Anderson Co., KY census a Susan Mourning, 45, is living in a household with James Mason, 74, Benjamin Mason, 19, and Benjamin Mason 85.
Can anyone help me understand this Mourning-Mason connection a little better?Thanks.
