Henry is my husbands ggrandfather. According to his marriage record to Clara Bredesen he was born around 1893 in Arcadia, Florida and lived in Ft. Meade in 1917. He was a US soldier, who made is way to NY and married Clara. However, I don't what happened to him after that. Neither does anyone in the family. He had a daughter Muriel born in 1918 with Clara who stayed in NY.
His parents listed on the Marriage record are Ancil Walker and Jennie Powell.
On my search I do find Henry with his mother and his siblings on the 1900 census, but no father. In 1910 the father is with the family. Henry is gone after that, and I can't find anything else on him.
I also noticed that there are 2 Ancil Walkers in Polk County, one married to Janie/Fannie and one to an Elenor. However when I look at public tree for both of these Ancil's I notice that have the same parents. My question is, Is this the same Ancil Walker, married to 2 women? I find that hard to beleive. Does anyone have access to the marriage records to confirm their parents names? Looks like Ancil married Jannie in 1892 and an Ancil married Ellenor in 1895.
Ancil Walker and Janie Powell who lived in Polk County Florida had 5 children that I know of. Henry, Harry, Edward, Hattie and Albert.
Help...I'd appreciate any information you can help me with...Thanks!
