Cora Lee (unknown maiden) MInchew & Ennis M Franklin

Classification: Query
Surnames: Minchew, Franklin
Cora Lee Minchew married as her 2nd husband, Ennis M Franklin, 27 Jun 1901 in Bossier Parish, LA (just E of Shreveport).

In 1900 she is 25 widowed & living in 282/284 Bossier Parish, LA as a boarder born 1875 LA with both parents also born in LA. With her are 3 children:

1. Archie W Minchew b 1893 LA (both parents born LA)
2. Sadonia b 1895 LA (both parents born LA) - this is Sedonia (Donie) Minchew
3. Alfred B (H?) b 1898 LA (both parents born LA)

Cora is again widowed on the 1930 Caddo Parish census. She lists her age as 51 on this census (b 1879) and with her are Alfred H Minchew & 3 children by Ennis M Franklin: Grady E b 1905, Marvin b 1906 & Andrew A b 1913.

Interestingly, on this census Cora states that her father was not born in LA as she stated in 1900, but in England and lists her mother as born in the US. It's possible one of the children provided this informtion to the enumerator, but I have no idea why the discrepancy in the place of birth of her father.

Can anyone give me some idea of what Minchew was her 1st husband & who his parents were?? Or do any of you know what happened to Archie W, Sedonia & Alfred B Minchew??

Thanks much!!

Lisa

Hi,
I've been checking the forums and found this thread. I'm guessing this is the Archie W. Minchew that's mentioned. Yes, he was married to my G-Aunt Virgia (Virgie) Barton. I have a better picture of him, but I just can't put my hands on it right now. The picture shows him in uniform, and a younger man than the one posted at the following; http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=18....

Cora Lee's last name was MNU b. abt 1875 - Louisiana, d. aft 1930.

I hope this is seen by someone interested in Archie. You see, Archie died and was buried in a different grave and the family didn't know where he was buried. After his wife died, Virgie's brother (Earl) had Archie located and reburied beside Virgie. Virgie never remarried after Archie died.

Hope to hear from someone,
Michael Barton

The story I've heard is that Cora Lee Hutton (b. ca. 1877 d. April 22, 1946) was married to a man named Alfred Minchew/Minchen, about whom nothing is known. He is deceased or has left the family at the time of the 1900 census for Bossier Parish, LA. Cora is indexed as Minchen. I don't know if Minchen if Alfred's real surname or if this is a misread on the part of the person who indexed the record.

Does anyone know if Archie's brother Alfred Henry (Dec 2, 1899 - Aug 28, 1932) married and had children? I'm not aware of any.
