Hello Jennifer, thanks for getting back with me. I did see that there was a Minnie in the 1910 census with Sallie, and her other two sons, but not Beatrice. I just think, not sure that it is Beatrice (Minnie probably a nickname). I know the age is different, but back then the census takers made lots of mistakes or their writing was not very good. My dad did mention a Minnie at one time way back. I am just wondering if Beatrice and Minnie are the same. 1920 shows Beatrice and not Minnie, then Beatrice in 1930.

I also found Rose with her spouse William and family in 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930 census. Calvin married a Mamie Clara Wyatt. Walter Lee married a Myrtle and William married a Carrie Gray. My great aunt, Flora Harris married a Coleman and one of her sons was named Walter Lee.
Which one of the children are you decended from?

I descend from Henry Harris, who married Ellis Bice. They had 8 children, which the first two died before 1910. They daughter Janie Harris was my grandmother who married Cecil Talton, whose son is my father. He just turned 82 last week.

I thought about getting a death certificate also, hoping that it would have something. I guess, I might just have to do it. Let me know if you find out anything more. My email address if

Thank you
