I am searching for information on a Nathan Nelms and his wife Margaret, last name starts with " K ", Per my GG Grandmothers death certificate she was born in Claiborne Parish, LA on May 04, 1853/55. Her name was Missouri Ann Nelms. I have very little info on her family, only that her parents were born in Mississippi, and she married in 1878 my GG Grandfather William Batson and died on December 07, 1917 in Sabine Parish, LA. Any informaton would be most appreciated. Thank you.
