My G-g-grandmother, Mary Elizabeth "Lizzie" Frerichs led a storied life..She had at least three liasons that produced children. The first is reportedly with James Nuton/Newton Reed reported to be Indian. With him we know she had Jane Frerichs (b:abt 1875)who later married Perley Brown. Next she had John William Fowler with Alvin Sylvester Fowler...John W. was born sometime after Jane but before 1879. This was my Great grandfather. In 1880 she was living in Cherokee County, NC as Lizzie Fraze with her two children but no husband or male head of household. In 1900 she is living near her widowed mother, siblings and her two elder married children in Ironsburg, Monroe, TN. In her household are two children, Sarah Josephine Sneed (b: 1883) and Marion Sneed (b: 1887 d: 1907). She's listed as a widow. She had married Arch Sneed in Monroe County, TN, 17 Nov 1889. I'm wondering if this is the same Arch Sneed who was married at the time to Mary Ann Blythe and married Lizzie only when his wife died. Shortly after 1900 she married Elijah Smith but had no further children. Lizzie may have been part NA (probably) and had all her child producing liasons with men who were NA or had already married NA women.
