Re: John Tennett Sr. of Caroline Co Va
I am searching for family of a Tennent, but have nodda when it comes to his given name. The Charleston, SC 1900 census showed Georgette H. Tennent, daughter, was living in the household of William E. Holmes and Georgette, wife, of South Carolina. She and her two daughters were living there. I can only assume she was either a widow, or separated from her husband.
I have also noticed, when encountering children in the same family with the same name, one of those children had died early in life. It is only an observation during research.
