I am looking for any info on the parents of Diana Maria Watkins 1857-1914. She was the wife of "Finney" Marsengill 1844-1934. They lived in the Macon/Jackson/Swain Co area until they moved to Rabun Co GA. Thanks

Dianna was the daughter of John Watkins and Catherine Pressley. Her parents were wed on 20 Apr 1853 in Jackson Co, NC. Performed by: M. Coleman, Justice Of the Peace.

Dianna married Finnis Mathis "Finney" Marsengill on 13 Jan 1877 in Swain Co, NC. Performed by: E.P. Gibson, Justice of the Peace at the home of John Wadkins (father of the bride). David Wadkins, Sam Massey and Matt Massey, witnesses.

They would remain in Swain County until after the death of Finney's mother.

Eight children would be born to this union: William Finnis Marsengill; John Thomas Marsengill; Emma K Marsengill; Josephine Marsengill; William Berry Marsengill; Henry Alexander Marsengill; Mary Marsengill; Frank M Marsengill.

Finney and Diana would remove to Rabun County, GA where she would die ca. 1914

I am also working on genealogy for this family. I am a descendant of their son, Mallard Frank Marsengill,and his 1st wife, Carrie Belle Seay. Email me at sandragordonnavarro@gmail.com
