Re: Hugh M. Epps and widow Lizzie
After seeing your post, I looked at the 1880 Marshall Co.,Tn Census and it shows Mary being a year older than Hiram Thomas and Joseph four years younger than Hiram T. Epps, my GreatGrandfather. I printed it out and looking back at it, it does say daughter and son. It was late so I just printed it without looking at it real close. Then I decided to look at 1870 Marshall Co.,Tn. Census in Lewisburg,Tn. and this is what I found:
Epps,H.M. 49 M
",M.A. 15 F
Next door is:
Lancaster,W.J. 29 M
",J.G. or J.S. 1 M
From what I have been told by William (Bill) Massey, a cousin, who used to live in Lewisburg, but now lives in Franklin,Tn., his ancestor Elizabeth Epps was married to W.J. Lancaster, and that this Elizabeth was the daughter of Hugh and Elizabeth Cole Epps.
Thanks again, Gene for your info. I might just find a whole world of new info because of your post.
