Frustrated!!!! No wonder I can't find my family. I found my Grandmother's name Under McClain instead of McLain her first name Curtie was spelled Curtis. My Grandfather's name, Samuel Anderson, was found Anerson, even the Headstones are ODD. My Grandfathers first name isn't even on the headstone. Gramdmas middle name was Esther. Her headstone says Curtie M. I'm guessing the M stands for McLain? One of her brothers name is Charley, it's spelled Chaley in the census. Back them they didn't ask, they just spelled it like they heard it. What can you do? The same goes for their Birth records,Marriage License, etc.......
and who knew they didn't have computers in the mountains of TN.?
