The following found in a Marriage book of Morgan Co., Alabama. From a very determined Tidwell mother! LOL
Meeks, Maggie -- The following note was attached to marriage book E, p.236, dated 30 March 1892, Morgan Co., Ala. and address to Mr. E. M. Russel:
my son Wm. A. Tidwell has been bribed to marry a girl by the name of Maggie Meeks and sometimes she goes by the name Maggie burnett -- i positivly forbid you ishuing marriage licens for the said Wm. A. Tidwell from his mother, Emma Tidwell".
I am looking for information on the parents ofMary Elizabeth "Bessie" Tidwell b.July 17, 1886 in Algood, Alabama...family info says her father was Joe Tidwell b.1849 & Fannie Huey b.1852 in Cleveland, Alabama. Included in the info from a decendent, the Biography of Dr. J.B. Tidwell, with info about an Aunt Jewel Tidwell saying Dr. J.B. Tidwell was a second cousin to Bessie Vaughn(Tidwell].Any info appreciated!
