Surnames: Carroll, Anthony, Hartness
I'm looking for information on my paternal grandmother, Octavia (Harness?)Anthony Carroll (her son, Jake Hayes, is my father). From what I can gather, her mother was Barbara (Barbry?)Hartness, but I can't find anything listing her as Barbara's daughter in any records.

She was married to Miles Augustus Carroll.

On the death certificate, dated Jan. 21, 1973, it also lists a "Henery Anthony" as her father, and her given name as "Octave".

I did come across a post on here that mentioned both Octavia and "Jack" were both born before Barbara married "Bill" Anthony.

I do know they lived in Notla community, and my dad was born in Cherokee county.

Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated, as I seem to have hit a wall at this point in my research.

Yes, thank you. I already have this info attached in my tree, & it says Jane was widowed when this census was taken. But I'm still confused. If my great grandmother Barbara already had Octave (Ectava) BEFORE she married Bill/Henery Anthony, then WHO was really Octave's father? And was "James " nicknamed "Jack"? Because that's what I read in another post..that Jack & Octavia were born before Barbara Hartness marries Bill Anthony, & Hartness is Barbara's maiden name. That's what's throwing me off, & I have no one from that side to ask.
