Looking for information on my husband's ggrandfather, Matthew Dillard, who lived in Reform, Pickens County, Alabama.
I've seen a marriage for a Matthew Dillard in Pickens County which lists his wife as Mollie McCord.
The 1910 Census lists Matthew's wife as "Mary" and her age as 52 years. Matthew was 55.Children listed were: Sylvia (age 19), Pearl (age 17), Lila (age 15), Willie (age 12)and Mary (age 10).
10-year old Mary was Mary Frances Dillard, my husband Kenneth Clay's maternal grandmother.Mary was born about 1900 in Reform.On 31 May 1916, Mary married Samuel Seuther Sims of York, Sumter County, Alabama in Livingston, Sumter County. Their daughter, Flora Blanche Sims, was Ken's mother.Mary and Samuel also have a son, Walter Ray Sims.
Mary and Samuel divorced and both remarried, Mary to Ellis Bernard Rodgers, a native of Georgia.
