I am having a great deal of difficulty tracking my mothers side of the family, Here's the problem, My Great-Grandmother
Mary Scarborough was from a wealthy family who owned a plantation in Alabama,She ran away from home to marry her Cowboy and the father disowned her, She married her cowboy but he was soon killed in a gun fight, however before he died he asked his best friend to take care of "Mollie" So he married her, His name was Abe Spears, We do not know if Scarborough was her married name to her first husband of if in fact it was her maiden name. I am assumeing that back in the mid 1800's when someone was disowned it was as if they never exsisted, So where do I go from here?.We do know that
they settled in Texas,where my Grandmother was born,However, I can't find anything on her either,and my mother doesn't know,She says her mother never talked about her life growing up.Does anyone have any information on Mary Mollie Scarborough?
