I have a Martha Jane "Mattie" Grogan who married Marion Turner Henson about 1867 and they were in Haywood County, North Carolina. Martha Jane Grogan had a sister named Sarah "Sally" Grogan who married Ira Lafayette Henson. The Grogan sisters were the children of Henry Grogan and Edna Harkins.
Henry Grogan was married again about 1868 to Mary Elvira Williams and my great grandmother, Ruthie E."Polly" Grogan was a daughter of this marriage. Polly had two children out of wed-lock. The first child was James Henry Grogan who later used the last name Burnette. The second born was my grandfather, Chester Blane/Blain Grogan. I was always told by my aunts, uncles, and father, that the man who fathered the children was Turner Henson. It's possible that Turner Henson is the Marion Turner Henson that was also married to Polly's half-sister, Martha Jane "Mattie" Grogan. I however, half no proof as to the father of Polly's first children. Polly also had a sister named Zora Rachel Grogan who married William Bergin Pressley.
Polly married James Kennedy "Jim" Burnette around 1900 and they had many children together. They are both buried at Rosemont Cemetery in Clinton, South Carolina. According to the death certificate for Jim Burnette, he was the son of David Burnette and Lucinda. His birthplace was Hayward County, NC (which should have been Haywood) on 27 Feb 1880. He died in Greenville, South Carolina during an extended hospital stay. He was residing in Cross Hill, Laurens County, South Carolina at the time of his death. Jim was married again after Polly died and had more children with his second wife.
I would love to share information with you.
