Looking for my great grandmother. Stories from family say she died in Upshur County, but no cemetery listing there so maybe someone might could help me in Wood County. My great grandmother's name was Belle Kennington b. abt 1872 d. after 1900 ? She was 27 yrs old living in Coffee County, Al according to the 1900 census. She married William Henry Pettus in 1892 Coffee County, AL. I was always told she died when my grandmother was 3 but according to census she was alive when granny was 4 and Belle was living with her parents, John W and Nancy Kennington in coffee county. W H Pettus married 3 times and she was his first wife. Family says he met Maude Norwood in Texas around Denton, but I have not found that information either. If anyone was has any listings of Kennington's, please send something.
Thanks in advance for your help.
