Re: Woodys of Cocke Co., TN
Katrina was refering to Mourning Malinda Woody Sweeten b: 1848 in Cocke Co., TN. This mourning was married to Stephen Sweeten & they had five children:
Sarah, Emma, John W., William, & Minnie.
Mourning's mother was Rhoda Woody Roland b: 1823 in NC. Mourning's father was a Hipp; they were never married. Rhoda did marry Abraham Roland.
