Re: Spouse and children of Alvin Allgood?
Elaine, I just discoverd this response. My e-mail address has changed to firstname.lastname@example.org -- thus I never received your input.
Also, I found your posting on Rootsweb WorldConnect (Laura Buckmaster) just this afternoon. Many thanks for your information. I have been trying to find out what happened to Katie/Fannie for years with no success.
"Wille A." in the 1900 census was William Alven (Alvin?) Hewitt per Hall Co., TX Death Certificate. He died 23 Oct 1907 in Estelline, Hall Co at the age of 11 years, 1 mo, and 17 days. The copy is very poor quality, but it looks like the cause of death was pneumonia. Being an old certificate, no parents are identified.
On the 1880 census, I just flat misread the info - you are absolutely correct - ie, Fannie Waters.
One question - where did James and Katie died? Oklahoma?
