LOOKING FOR MAIDEN NAME OF LAVINIA
I am trying to find the maiden name of my GGG Grandmother, Lavinia. She was married to Jesse Carter b. 1822 Tennessee.
I find them in 1850 census in McMinn Co,TN. Jesse was the son of Henderson Carter & Matilda Trim. In Jesse Carter's pension papers it says that Warham & Rutherford Easley would know the details of Lavinia's death. She died soon after the birth of their son John between 1854-56 in Missouri. I noticed that thare are some Easley & Murphree marriages & am hoping there is a Lavinia who might be mine among the names of the children. Also Jesse worked for a man by last name of Murphree & lived in ElDorado,Saline Co, ILL after leaving Missouri. This is the same place the Easleys lived also.
