Re: Twente's Alex Co. IL
Okay, found my answers to the naming issues... I am pasting in a reply I made to another thread on this forum ...
Trying to track Mary Ann down myself, I had been rather confused by the names used.
Mary Ann Perry Holmes...
Mary Ann Holmes
Mary Ann Hargis
Digging has finally helped...
on 2/26/1863 Mary Ann Hargis married Emmanuel J Holmes, thus becoming Mary Ann Holmes
I have no clue what became of that marriage, but on June 29th, 1865 Mary Ann Holmes married Louis Twente.
Louis died 2-12-1885
Mary Ann Twente married Joel Perry in October 1885, 8 months after Louis Twente died. Thus the name Perry above.
So, technically I guess the name should be:
Mary Ann Hargis-Holmes-Twente-Perry
The Mary Ann Perry Holmes that I had kept seeing really threw me off, I was under the impression she had been Perry Holmes at the time she married Louis Twente.
Thank goodness for being able to dig up old records and get these things straight.
