Conway County Marriages: NOT found for Mollie & John Davis
1900 & 1910 Conway County Census suggests that Mollie(y) Hopkins and Mrs.Clemmie Hoard could be the same person. The ages, place of birth, birth place of parents, and years married match. Both Clemmie and Mollie are "nick names." 1910 census states Molly & John were married 10 years, which would put them married in 1900. The marriage ofJ.A. Davis & Mrs. Clemmie Hoard would match that year.1900 census states Mrs. Clemmie Hoard had two children and both living at time of her marriage to J.A. Davis. They do not appear in the household with John A. Davis and Clemmie Davis.
