Hugh M. Epps and widow Lizzie
Maybe you already knew this, but I just discovered it.I believe Elizabeth Cole, the widow of Hugh M. Epps, was in Marshall County, TN, after Hugh died.
Somebody with more Epps experience than I can sort this out, or maybe everybody else was aware.
1880 census Marshall County, TN:
Thomas Epps 22 wife Martha(Aren't these your ancestors?)
Next door Lizzie Epps with children Mary and Joseph.
She looks suspiciously like Elizabeth Cole.She's age 58 born North Carolina father born North Carolina (John Cole, and he was), mother born SC (Nancy Graves, and we believe she was born in SC).
I've never seen a list of Hugh and Elizabeth's children with a Mary and Joseph.Is this some other Lizzie Epps?
