I'm looking for the parents of Sophia Dollars, born in January 1886 in Murphysboro, Jackson Co., Illinois. I have listed as her parents Lonnie (or Sonie) Dollars & Ida Bridget. Her mother Ida was born in Feb. 1867 in Illinois. I know nothing about her father, except for the family story that says he was a Cherokee Indian.
Sophia married in January 1903 to Peter Doyle and they lived in Breese, Clinton Co., IL until their divorce sometime after 1910 but before 1920. By 1920, Sophia and three kids were living in St. Louis, Mo. Peter just fell off the face of the earth. He doesn't resurface until 1942 with a WWII draft registration card, living in Indianapolis, Ind.
Sophia died in 1974 in St. Louis at the home of her daughter, Irene Smith.
Any help and/or suggestions on finding Sophia's parents would be most appreciated!!

Was Sophia married to a William Manwaring who died in St. Louis in 1951?
William Manwaring the son of Thomas H. Manwaring & Martha "Mattie" Ann V. Glascock of Ralls/Pike Co, Missouri.
I just know a little about the Manwarings and a lot about the Glascocks.
What were Sophia's kids names?
William Manwaring may have been married prior to an Elizabeth ?? and had a daughter, Daphne, and a daughter, Letitia??
