Thank you so much for the 1880 census information.You mention a child Ezekiel (Zack)on the 1900 census with W.W. and MJ.Was that name on the census?My gr-grandfather was Zachariah Wells (Zack), and by 1900 was already married to Alice Sides and had several children.
As far at the J.T. marriage - I don't know - but the name and timing make sense.
As you can probably tell, I've done the most research on my direct line.W.W. to Zack Wells, to Odie Zack.I'm really just starting to dig into W.W. and Mary Jane's other children and their families.
