Sarah McAllister (1844-1918), (daughter of Allen McAllister and Rebecca LeBoon) married a _____Clement or Clemens in about 1872 (found marriage record in 1872 in Lefore County Miss. that could be their marriage record). The 1880 Anderson County, SC Census, shows Sarah Clemens as a widow with two children: Elmina (born abt 1874) and James Wiley Clement (1877). She then married a William C. Wyatt in 1884. She is listed in the 1900 and 1910 Census in Pickens, South Carolina... Sarah McAllister Wyatt died in June 1918.

Elmina Clemens/Clement must have married, had a daughter, and then died before 1900... as the 1900 Census says that Sarah, her mother, is the mother of two, one living... and the one living is James Wiley Clement... as I found him in the 1910 Census and the World War I Draft. When James Wiley Clement registered for the draft in Sept. 1918 in Pickens County, South Carolina, he list his next of kin as "Elmina's daughter."

Can anyone help me find who Elmina married, and what her daughter's name was?

Many thanks
