I am looking for information about my great-great grandmother.I believe her name was Martha Celani and that she married William Stephen.I'm guessing this was about the mid 1800's.My great-grandmother Sallie Stephen was born in April of 1870 somewhere in Louisiana she married Eli B. Baughman from Pensylvania in 1886.They moved to the northeast section of Texas and had several children, one of which was my grandmother Edith Lee Baughman.
When Sallie died in Greenville, Tx., her son who gave the information to the funeral home for her death certificate listed her mother's maiden name as Martha Cealney.I can find nothing at all on this surname. I mean nothing, nowhere, anywhere! Nothing!But I did find where there was a family of Celani's living in Louisiana at the time of question.From what I can tell they came from Naples, IT.I'm fairly certain my great-great grandmother was among them, but I just need a little more information to confirm.If anyone could be of any help, please let me know.
With Much Appreciation,
Michele L. Langlo
