It is interesting in that Levina Waters in the 1910 census lists herself as being married 4 times.Her daughter Susan Waters Gay as being married 2 times and her husband John J Gay as being married 3 times.John and Susan show them being married for 35 years which makes them married in 1875.
The census in 1880 in Monroe County, Alabama lists 4 children born before 1875.Either John or Susan both may have brought some of their children into their marriage from previous marriages.
Wonder why Levina lists herself has having been married 4 times?Could she have been Diademia in previous marriages?
How did you determine that Bryant Waters fought for the South from Louisiana instead of Alabama.Are there records to support his?
Makes one want to dig a little deeper, doesn't it.
