Re: Frank Battles of Alabama?
My name is Steven, the great grandson of Iona Battles, daughter of what is listed in the 1920 census of Frank Battles, born in Sept. 1872.He had listed Gertrude and Mildred as older sisters of Iona, as well as Unice Delina Battles.All these names are familiar to my grandmother, the daughter of Iona Battles.Mildred apparently was from another marriage, and my grandmother said that he died shortly after Iona's marriage, which would place that around 1925.
He had listed that he was born in Alabama, as were both parents.Iona's mother was apparently nicknamed "Netty", or "Anne Jeannette" (spelling?), and died before the 1920 census, as it listed Frank as a Widower.
My grandmother remembered that he worked/owned a grocery store or farmed, and that he went by the name "Bill".
I have as yet been able to to further our lineage with this line, and would appreciate any help you may give me.
