Hi all! I am trying to figure who my biological ggrandmother is. She died during childbirth with my grandmother. I have my grandmother's marriage certificate to John Henry Blevins (1895-1972)from 1919. It lists her mother as Nancy Silvers, deceased (not her maiden name). I cannot find any record of William Silvers (1877-1969)being married to a Nancy. In the 1900 census William is listed as single. My grandmother, Ollie Silvers, according to her death certificate, was born in October, 1901. So sometime between 1900 and 1901 my ggrandfather got married, had a baby, and lost his wife. He later married Laura Lou Byrd who raised my grandmother. People in the family tell me they think it's Nancy Pres(s)ley? If anyone has any info. on this I'd love to hear from you. They were all from around the Yancey Co. area.
