Yes, I can. Her mother was Lucretia Grace Mann Epps Coleman. Matilda's father was George Washington Mann. He died in the Civil War. Lucretia's parents (Matilda's grandparents) were John and Elizabeth Farlow Grace. (Have no idea where or when Elizabeth died, before 1880. John died in Oregon before 1900.) Matilda Mann was born in Jefferson, Greene County, Iowa on 18 Jul 1863. Matilda's siblings were:
Ambery Mann, born 17 Nov 1860/1861 in Iowa, died 23 June 1927 in Page County, Iowa. (Have quite a bit on him.)
Rosella (Beattle) Mann (She was born out of wedlock, all explained in Civil War packet.) born 31 Jan 1868 or 1870 in Iowa, died 3 June 1943 in Stevensville, Ravalli, Montana. In 1900, she would have been married to Louis Harris. She married Louis in 1898 in Stevensville, 2nd marriage. (Have quite a bit on her and her family.)
Ben (Beattle) Mann, born 30 Jun 1873/1874 in Nebraska, died 12 Jun 1965 in Hot Springs, Sanders, Montana. (Born out of wedlock. Never married.)
Grace Marie Epps, born 20 May 1875/1876/1877 in Page County, Iowa, died 5 Dec 1933, in Creswell, Lane, Oregon. (Her father was John Epps. He was killed in Iowa. She was married at least three times.) In 1900, she would have been single. I have her first marriage in 1901 in Missoula County, Montana. She may have been going by Coleman. Her certificate for her second marriage, she lists Ben Coleman as her father.
Ben Coleman is my great great grandfather, but Lucretia was his second marriage. My great great grandmother is Telitha Jane Grace, sister to Lucretia.
Matilda was married to Frank Henderson in Page County, Iowa according to the Civil War pension packet and then was later divorced. I have not found a marriage record for them in Page County or anywhere in Iowa as yet. I know that on her marriage certificate to Sylvester Babbitt, she is listed as Minnie Henderson. On the 1880 census, I found a Matilda Henderson, age 16, born Iowa, listed as daughter-in-law. Her husband, Andrew F. Henderson, age 20, born Missouri. Both have parents as born Penn. and Ohio, but that would not be right for Matilda, but those kind of errors can occur. They are in Lincoln Township, Atchison, Missouri. Which is very possible. Matilda had family there, also.
