Mary Ann Garret of AL/MS
I am seeking a connection to Mary Ann Garrett.According to census data from Rankin Co., MS, Mary Ann was from AL.Don't know what county.Mary Ann was born ca 1824/26 and died after 1880 in Rankin Co., MS.She married George Washington Davis on March 2, 1884.She was G.W.'s second wife, Nancy Moore being the first.G.W. and Mary Ann had the following issue:Josephine, b ca 1855, James Buchannan, b 1856, William Franklin, b 1858, Edward Garrett, b 1862, Samuel, b 1863, and Rose, b 1866.
I found information in the 1850 Rankin Co., MS census that in household 412 Nary Garrett, age 26, was living with W.B. Smith and wife Nancy, age 28.This would put Mary being born around 1824 and I ask, is she Mary Ann Garrett that married G.W. Davis?The dates and age sure fit.Was Mary and Nancy possibly sisters?Had Mary (Ann?) moved to Rankin Co. to live with her sister and met G.W. Davis and they married there?
I actively research the Davis line and have never tried to track the Garrett branch.I would be interested in contacting anyone that could give me some direction on the Garrett connection.Sorry that I don't have much to go on concerning Mary Ann. I will be happy to furnish any data on the Davis line that you think will help make a connection.Contact me directly a:MARTYBILLD@att.net
Thanks and regards,Bill Davis
