Thank you again. I had some writings from my grandmother Lois that my deceased dad's wife ( my step mom) gave me a couple of years ago. I should have looked at them before I started searching this site. I dug them out, and low and behold my grandma Lois had signed one of the documents, Lois A Finta, daughter of Felethia Hardin Culleton! The great things is, that my father's original surname seems to be the one you identified in one the cenusus records. I'm so excited! There are several records for Felethia, Lethia, each having a different husband and my grandma Lois having different "fathers"! Things were just as scandalous back then! I've still to figure all that out, but really appreciate you helping me with my dad's surname!! Thank you!
