very grateful for that information mcmitton.
I was wondering if you can help me to understand why irenes mother lucy wise can only be found in the 1900 census. and a mary b wise appears as doc wise wife in every other census. would that indicate that she pass on meaning lucy wise. i cant find her in any other census because i have know last name for her. she carries doc wise last name and im not sure what her name was before marriage. is there any way that i can find lucy wise last name through any other census. also Doc wise is listed in every census as black. not sure why because he was indian. is that an error. thank you very much for taking the time out to assist me.
