How exciting research is and "tossing" these things about.What I have recorded is..... 1870 Census Delila Sides age 76 states her place of birth being North Carolina.She was not living in 1880.She had passed in March of 1875 at age 83 years, 2 months and 25 days according to family bible and cemetery records. 1880 Census daughter Caroline Rulon states mother's place of birth North Carolina 1880 Census son Daniel Monroe states mother's place of birth North Carolina 1880 Census son William Wilson states mother's place of birth North Carolina
We do not know who gave the census taker the information that they did concerning the parents of Michael Alexander Sides married to Cynthia Six to which you refer to as his mother being born in Maryland and father born in Pennsylvania. Michael A.'s father was not born in Pennsylvania either he was born in North Carolina.
I'm sure you clearly understand my willingness to be thorough in this matter.As thorough as possible.I can not discount your information any more than I can discount the letter from Elizabeth Briggs Stephens in reference to her mother Constance and aunt Delila.
In order to press this issue further would you be so kind as to contact me at email@example.com.I sincerely appreciate your time and patience in this matter.
