Thank you for the reply. If I learn anything definite, will get back with you.
Interesting, maybe she did use"Mary", however, I've always heard her referred to as Martha Ann Penelope (or is that her daughter?). I am thinking that Penelope might have outlived John (actually, he went by the name of Gus -short for Augustas). Somewhere I saw that marriage listed but not in Madison Co. records...will have to find the info.
There may not even be a marriage record between John L. A. and Luquilla; Duncan Baxter wrote a booklet about 1960 and included many interviews with elderly relatives as well as courthouse research and he had written about John L. A. and Luquilla. At least one of the descendants in J. L. A. line
married a Brown. Don't remember the connection but my g/gfather Brown md 2nd Maude Baxter (she was a good bit younger than he and asked us to call her Aunt Maude; she descends from the Willis Baxter line, collateral to my James Jackson "Jimbo" line)...confusing. At any rate, I am researching, Baxter, Brown, Burt which intermarried sometimes and have common ancesters.
John A., son of John L. A.) is sometimes mistaken for his father and his children's names were similar. That's what makes it so difficult to sort these people out.
BTW, do you know much about the Moore line? My ggg/mother md Tom or George Moore about 1861 and he died in the Civil War and she was left a widow, Serene Elizabeth Igou Moore who later md Napolean Bonaparte Burch of Jackson County. She is my g/mother's g/mother.
