Looking for info on Millard Edney and his family. Millard was my
G,G,grandfather. He married Martha Virginia (Jennie) Lavender.
The children that I am aware of them having are: (May not be in birth order.)

Mary Keiffer/Keifer Edney (my great grandmother), born in Columbus MS., around 1880.
John Edney;
Carniffe Ruff Edney(1891-1939);
Claude Edney(1894-1953).

Mary K. Edney married Hezakiah Clark Gore.
M.K.Edney and H.C.Gore were
in the AL, and MS areas I believe.
They had one child:
Given name: Willie Lillian Gore. She later changed the Lillian to Mae,
(Willie Mae Gore), b. Dec. 27, 1900 in Smythe, Jefferson Co. AL.
(Around the Birmingham area.)
Does anyone have any info on any of these names? I am begining to think that they came from Mars!
