I am trying to double check some info I believe to be true. Please let me know if you have any idea.
This part I know is true.
My grandmother, Everlee Henry (born 9, mar 1900) married a man named "W Oglesby" in Dixie County, Florida on 15, Apr 1928. I found a scan of the marriage certificate. It says she was 21 but she was actually 28. It says he was 32 (estimate birth date 1896).
I know that he died about a month later - I believe of natural causes according to my mom. My mom has passed away so I can't confirm that.
This is the part where I did some sleuthing...
I found a death certificate (not the actually image) for a Walter Oglesby that died in 1928 in Dixie County, Florida - no other info with that record but another record comes up under Walter Oglesley - I believe this was misread. This Walter also died in 1928 - on May 4th in Cross City, Dixie Florida. It says he was born in Areita, Alabama, was a Logger and is buried at Perrey Florida Cemetery. It says he was 32 at death.
Does anyone know of this Oglesby? I just want to have the info in my tree even though they were only married for 1 month.
I did see in the 1930 census that my grandmother is living with her brother and is listed as "Everlee Oglesby" and Widowed.
Any info would be appreciated.
