Thank you so much! I had put my genealogy down for a couple of years and am just now picking it back up. You definitely have the right family- but you can see my problem- We have her as Sarah "Sally/Sallie" Elizabeth Ingram. With three first names and all,lol.

I think there is a mix up with the James Thomas' and Sarah/Sally/Sallies. Clarence Alton Thomas, son of James Jackson Thomas and Sarah E Ingram is one of 4 children; Clara, Alex G, Ray, and Clarence.

There's not a mix up as far as I know. Maggie Ethel was already grown, married and out of house by the 1920 census, at least one of her siblings (Franklin) had also died by that time. Clara, Edna, Franklin, Alexander and Ethel were living in the household in the 1910 census and for whatever reason, Clarence was not listed in the household and Ray was not born until 1911. I've also confirmed this information with James and Sarah's granddaughter, who is still living.

Wow! I can not find everything I need! LOL Sorry, yes you're right. I've been fumbling thru so many papers! Clarence was my great grandfather. My grandmother is his daughter Nadine. Can you send me any copies of census records and vital statistics? My family swears we have Cherokee in our blood, but they don't know who it was! Any help would be awesome! I don't know if this thing gives you my email address or not, but it is sjrobertson1979@yahoo.com. Thanks!
