Gary Family Genealogy Forum
Loretta was born in Mississippi in 1852 and because we have not been able to establish that she was married to H. E. Stocking, we have shown her married to Johnny Beard Stocking until we can prove the connection to H. E. Family history states that H. E. & Loretta had 2 children, Mary Jane born in 1870 & Marvin Russell born in 1871. The Stockings lived in Texas and the children were born there. Family history states that Loretta was Native American and died shortly after the birth of Marvin and H. E. took the children to his brother, Johnny Beard to raise. Nothing more is found on H. E. or Loretta. Johnny Beard and his wife Henrietta Penson Stocking raised the children and had 2 children of their own. If you can shed any light on this family where we can prove or disprove what the family has passed down it would certainly be appreciated. Marvin was my great grandfather.
