Jerri, I did get a copy of Tilda Mae Taylor Whorton's death certificate and it stated her mother's name was Fannie Wesson and father was A...(cannot decipher the rest of the first name to save me) Stewart. I know Tilda was raised by a woman called Grannie Wesson after her mother, Fannie, died. And sister Parthenia was married to Perry V Wesson. Perhaps Fannie married a brother to Perry. After Mr. Taylor's death, either Fannie married a Wesson or she married a Stewart.Or she married a Wesson but her daughter was fathered by a Stewart.Puzzling!
Tilda Mae always went by the name Taylor.It is on her tombstone, and why Stewart was on the death cert. is quite the mystery.
The clouded past of this family is one that begs for discovery.I hope to find out what happened to all these people. Where they are buried, what happened to Fannie's other children, what happened to Parthenia, Perry and their children. What a challenge!
