Barbara, I'm looking for Thomas Addison b. 1861. I believe he was married first to a woman named Millie. They had the following children: Arrina, Mary "Alabama," Henry Lee, Maud, and others. Thomas's first wife died early and he married a woman named Mollie. His drinking caused them to separate and Mollie raised his children. The children grew up in Monroe county Alabama. The family was there by 1920. I looked in the 1880 census and could not find Thomas listed in Alabama. There is a Thomas Addison of the right age in Lauderdale county Tn, living with his mother Mary A.(born in England abt. 1823).
Do you have any record of a Thomas Addison born 1861 who moved to Alabama? I am told our Addison ancestors are of Irish descent ("Black Irish"). Have you heard of this?
