Rowena:I have an Elizabeth Edna Ticer married to Wilson Allen Green about 1884. One of their children is Myrtle Green Boucher.Myrtle named her son W. M. Boucher. (initials only - no names).I have a tape of an interview with her that someone did and she mentions that the initials were for William Marion but she thought that was too much name for a little baby so she just called him W. M.(she says like Wm).He had problems with that in the navy so the navy put him on record as W.M. (only).So that is what we call him! hahahaAnyway, I was wondering how Elizabeth might be tied to your William Marion.I do not have her parents but her siblings were Tom, Lee, Sam, Charlie, John, Martha, May, and Belle.Elizabeth was born 8/19/1869 and died 3/10/1906.Could these have been his children??Especially because the first son was called Tom.
