Mary Denton - Nash Co., NC
This lady was my grandmother (bn. abt. 1880, d. 1961) and she lived a very sad life.She was the sister of Dr. Aulsey L. Denton of Castalia, NC, whose father was Jordan Denton.
I know that Mary Denton appeared as a servant girl in the 1900 Nash County Census in the household of a Thomas Tyson farm family just prior to her marriage to Charles B. Mullen, my grandfather.She eventually had 2 children named Pearl and Alonza (my father).In 1910, she was sent to an institution in Raleigh, NC, leaving behind her husband and 2 young children who never really knew her. She died in an institution in 1961 in Goldsboro, NC.
Are there any Denton relatives or anyone else reading this that may have any information, old Denton family pictures, etc., in regard to Mary?
